We are proud to announce that Spotify integration is completed. Started in a sleepless night seventeen days ago, we have integrated the great work of Thomas Jost (Schnouki), the Spop daemon. Spop has been completely integrated into RuneUI, with playback control, coverart support and playlist management as you can see in these screenshots.
You will enjoy this new feature in the next upcoming official release of RuneAudio.

No Way. :o

That's... incredibly cool. And no small thing. I have more than a few friends who are going to jump on board now that RA has Spotify. Well done, folks!

Great that this is possible, but probably just as great that it can be switched off in the settings... Not everyone is willing to dish out the monthly fee for a premuum account... ;-)

Great work :)

Truly impressive considering the limited time you have.

... now that this is done, the Qobuz subscriber in me will indeed be getting jealous! I honestly thought that you would rather implement a hifi-oriented solution like qobuz before something like Spotify, but anyway, that's great too. I might try their Premium subscription too but it's mp3 only, or so it seems. :)

That is indeed an awesome surprise. I currently use rdio, but this would make me tempted to switch (unless you've got other streaming platforms in your roadmap, in which case please do tell :)). Now that I look at spotify, I see they have gapless playback, another reason to switch. Hmm.

There do seem to be a number of services that are going to be offering lossless streaming (Qobuz, Tidal, Wimp), but none of them are available in Canada yet, so I wouldn't be able to take advantage of them.

Can't wait for 0.3-beta.

No, Spotify Connect API is not public yet, and currently the SDK is only being distributed to Spotify Partners.
At this point the only way to do that would be doing reverse engineering on the protocol... hard and with uncertain results. If you want to try that way, here you can find some useful informations. Good luck about that...
