Spotify Connect Plugin (old-volumio login with winscp)

Postby eagle » Thu Aug 18 2016 20:33

I have installed volumio on my py2 and want to install spotify connect.

In order to do so I need to copy files to a directory using winscp.

The problem is I can't get access with winscp using root, volumio.

When I use this username and password directly on my py with a keyboard loggin in goes ok.

what can be the problem?

Hi!
you have to use volumio as usr and volumio as passwd. Root login is no more allowed.
May I suggest you something ? I wrote a plugin, not finished yet but fonctionnal to use spotify connect easily. Just download only the zip file on your computer from the directory https://github.com/balbuze/volumio-plugins/tree/master/plugins/music_service/volspotconnect . In volumio go to plugin, upload and drop the file here. Refresh the page to make new plugin appears. You will need a spot app_key to be place in the go folder. Please read readme.md (in the same directory) . Let me know. ;)

Thank you very much for your help!

As a hardware engineer all this software stuff is not my strongest point, to say the least.

Of course I have some more questions and hope you have the time to assist me.

In the github repository I miss the download or clone button. How do I get the repository as a zip on my computer?

One other question: I am unable to connect my Synology NAS as a music source.
Tried a lot of things, googled a lot, but still no succes.

The ip address of my nas is 192.168.1.2, which I set in the appropriate field. Path is set to /muziek.

But no luck, it will not mount.
When I type \\diskstation\muziek in explorer I get access to the files.

Hi!
There is a file called volspotconnect.zip. Clic on it, and a new page will open with a download button on the right side.
For your NAS, remove the /, so path is just "muziek"

Both are working.

Spotify connect worked straight by only installing the volumio 0.976 img. Guess everything is already included in the image.

I can stream straight from spotify to Volumio.
This is a perfect solution.

Next step is installing the DAC and building it all in an old speaker.
And find a solution for the 2.4GHz wireless streaming. So much interference with neighbouring networks.
Have to install a 5GHz wireless dongle, since the pi3 only supports 2.4GHz.

Thanks for this great project.

Maybe you mean that you're using airplay... And that allows you to stream to Volumio, right?

Don't know if it is airplay.

I use Spotify on my Iphone and select Volumio as output source. Is it Airplay I am using here or spotify-connect.
If it's Airplay, is that in the package by default?

Either way, I don't really care since it functions.

I also have a 7" raspberry pi display connected to my pi.

Is it possible to use this display as a Volumio browser window on the pi?
If so than you would have a stand alone solution that is possible to stream Spotify content and play NAS stored music content.

@micheangelo : this is not airplay... I suggested @eagle to test the plugins I wrote for Spotify-connnect...
