spotify via free libraspot

Post by jikopilo » November 2nd, 2019, 7:35 am

Hey
I've read, that one of the reasons why there is no spotify integration within mpd is, that spotify is non free. However there exists a free alternative. https://github.com/librespot-org/librespot
could this be used to add spotify into mpd?

I ask, because I would like to improve the spotify integration of http://phoniebox.de/index-en.html
this project is heavily based on mpd and they have a sort of spotify integration, but it has quite some issues. If a librespot based plugin would exist, this would be much simpler.

All my best

Why not. One difficulty would be that this library is written in Rust, so somebody would first have to write C bindings for it. Any volunteers for developing that feature?
