Spotify Not Playing on RuneAudio

Postby Eespinosa » 29 Feb 2020, 17:07

Hello, all. Just got RuneAudio loaded on a Pi 2B. After some tinkering, I got my browser to log into Rune. I entered my Spotify credentials into the UI, but the Pi is not seen by the Spotify Android app or the Spotify Windows app. I have a Spotify Premium account, but that doesn't seem to matter. My phone and laptop are on the same network as the Pi 2. Is there something else that I can look into?

I don't have a Spotify account, but the few streaming stations I use I have to play from Rune under My Web radios. I'm not using the Spotify app, but I wouldn't think they could control Rune. The Rune app would just control the playback volume or pause on the few ones I use.

Hi Team behind this beautifull software,

I recently installed this software on my PI ; this is really great to play my NAS music & streaming radio.
What I really miss is the Spotify that is not working. This is a showstopper .

Are there any plans in the future to ensure that this will work again ?

Any way, many thanks to create this software as a work of art. I love it.

With kind regards,
Pieter

Hello Pieter,
I have a version of RuneAudio 0.5b, a sort of pre-release for 0.6b which supports Spotify Connect. I use as my main player at the moment. It has some minor bugs, which I will probably not correct. You can try it if you want to, but please note that I will not provide any support. I am too busy with other things at the moment. I have not tested Rern's addon's, I would be surprised if this works. There is no equivalent version for the Pi 1 (models A, B or Zero), it works only for only for the Pi 2 (models 2B, 3B, 3B+ and 3A+) and there is no support for the Pi 4B.

There are some updates for this image, a normal git pull will not work. You need to log in via SSH and run the following commands from the CLI:

cd /var/www
git config user.email "any@body.com"
git config user.name "anybody"
git config --global core.editor "nano"
git stash
git pull --no-edit https://github.com/gearhead/RuneUI.git/ 0.5b-dev
chown -R http.http /srv/http/
find /srv/http/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find /srv/http/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find /etc -name *.conf -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find /usr/lib/systemd/system -name *.service -exec chmod 644 {} \;
chmod 644 /etc/nginx/html/50x.html
chmod 777 /run
chmod 755 /srv/http/command/*
chmod 755 /srv/http/db/redis_datastore_setup
chmod 755 /srv/http/db/redis_acards_details
chmod 755 /etc/X11/xinit/start_chromium.sh
chown mpd.audio /mnt/MPD/*
chown mpd.audio /mnt/MPD/USB/*
chmod 777 /mnt/MPD/USB
chmod 777 /mnt/MPD/USB/*
chown -R mpd.audio /var/lib/mpd
/srv/http/command/rune_shutdown
reboot

If I change anything I will keep this up to date, occasionally running these commands again may provide an update.

Hi Janui,
Runeaudio is a fantastic software. Many thanks!!! I am so happy with this spotify version, that I have invested in a housing for my Raspberry Pi (hifiberry DAC pro) and also a Raspberry PI 7-inch touchscreen. Unfortunately, this does not work. Screens stops on message "Starting ..Runeaudio". Probably I have to install a screendriver? ..Or do some adaption in the config.txt file?

Via the webbrowser everything is working fine!

I have no real Linux knowledge but able to nano a file, run a command (via Putty). Do an file transfer, etc.. Can you please help me forward? Put me in the right direction ?

Many thanks in advance and kind regards,
Pieter

I have found my problem after reading a lot of forum messages.
If you have the same problem ; go to setting and put local browser to "ON" :-)

You have to play a bit with the display zoom factor. I have a standarda RPI 7" touchscreen and have put this to 1. ..Still the track-timer, photo and volume are vertical, so you always have to scroll down.

Probably this is solved with a lower value than 1 ? ..But he does not acccept a lower value. How to do that ? ..Or do I have to solve that problem in another way ?

Thx for your feedback

Hi,
Once again I found the the problem: If you configure a 7 inch screen (local browser on) than you have to config the 'Display Zoom Factor' . Here you can NOT write a value lower than 1. So as example "0.7" is not accepted or interpreted correctly. you have to write ".7" instead. :-)

Because of DRM protection, you cannot directly play Spotify music on RuneAudio. Spotify just allows you to play their songs on itself. So if you want to listen to Spotify songs on RuneAudio, you have to find a converter that removes drm. After getting the songs by converter, it is possible to transfer the songs to RuneAudio. I think it works. I have tried a Spotify Converter from DumpMedia on Google. The 15 days free-trial on Windows gives me a great experience. https://www.dumpmedia.com/spotify-music-converter/
