@@ -13,9 +13,11 @@ As there are already a number of spotify bindings or modules for the REST API, t
of this module is not to give access to the artist and tracks catalog. It's main purpose is
to allow for playback of the tracks. The idea is to expose a `Player` object in which the user
can load tracks, play them, and get decompressed audio data from it (as provided by the libspotify C library).
+
What the user can do with the audio stream is up to him/her. As it is raw PCM data, it is easy to pipe to
some kind of encoder (like gstreamer) in order to broadcast music or stream it to a web user (as long as it complies
with the Spotify terms of service ;).
+
The user can also choose to play the song locally with a node module like [node-portaudio](https://github.com/joeferner/node-portaudio)
or pipe the audio data to another process like [play](http://linux.about.com/library/cmd/blcmdl1_play.htm)
