Just thought I'd put it out there that we're trying to implement an open source version of the Spotify Connect protocol, which allows you to stream to hardware devices. Figured Volumio would be one of the projects that would benefit from such an addition, but the main reason I'm here is that we're looking for anyone who knows a bit about reverse engineering or anything else that might help the project out, and if you have some spare time and want to contribute, for the benefit of of open source media boxes everywhere ;)

Anyways, thanks for reading.

The repo for work so far, and links to related stuff can be found here: https://github.com/sashahilton00/spotif ... -resources
And if you're feeling talkative, the repo chatroom is here: https://gitter.im/sashahilton00/spotify ... -resources

Any and all contributions welcome. See u soon :)

Just thought I'd let anyone interested know, we have managed to implement a Spotify Connect prototype, which runs on armv6. We will need help building out the library to fully support all Connect features, more on that later on once we have a POC for decrypting the Connect encryption, and have decided whether to reverse the entire thing, or just make a wrapper and hook into libspotify. Have a read of the chatroom log on gitter if interested.

Hi guys,

sorry but have been busy lately. TBH there isn't much to help with atm as we are still building the open source library, but once that is out, it would be great to see it integrated into as many applications as possible. All activity related to this project is happening on the Gitter chatroom, so stop by and catch up if you want ;)

It would be very convenient if we would have a Spotify Connect option for Volumio. The html interface works fine, but the Spotify app is just a step further in searching and creating playlists.

This will definitely improve the interest in Volumio / RPI as high end audio solution.

Keep up the good work!

Hurra!!!! :D :D
It works ! I made Spotify connect running with volumio using this : https://github.com/Fornoth/spotify-connect-web
(I have tested it with volumio2 image but I think it should work on 1.55 and I will test it soon!
nota : You have to get a dev key from Spotify to use it. I used the pre-built version
:mrgreen:
