Spotify support for Phoniebox (this guide is for all who want to manually update to +Spotify Edition)

MUST READ

If you want to integrate Spotify:

  • You must have a Spotify Premium subscription. Phoniebox will not work with Spotify Free, just Spotify Premium.
  • You need a non-Facebook Spotify username and password.
    • If you created your account through Facebook you'll need to create a "device password" to be able to use Phoniebox. Go to http://www.spotify.com/account/set-device-password/, login with your Facebook account, and follow the instructions. However, sometimes that process can fail for users with Facebook logins, in which case you can create an app-specific password on Facebook by going to facebook.com > Settings > Security > App passwords > Generate app passwords, and generate one to use with Phoniebox.
  • MP3 (local music) handling has completely changed for the +Spotify Edition. The tracks need to be indexed by Mopidy & Mopidy-Spotify (this is the part of Phoniebox, which gives you spotify support) and the created M3U files do have another structure than normal M3U files.
    • You have to scan you library once (if you hadn't yet) and everytime you upload new local tracks to your Phoniebox.
    • You can scan local files under "Folders & Files" (Top Navigation).
    • For the future we try to integrate an automation for that.

Bug reports and testers

Testers needed for the Spotify integration Please read more in this thread.

If you open an issue on github, please provide as much informations as you can. What is you Edition (Classic or +Spotify)? Which version so you have? What is the problem and what did you try to solve this? And so on..

About this document

You best start will be to start a FRESH INSTALLATION, please read more here.

The one-line-install should detect an existing installation and ask you if you want to keep the content. That should work, no guarantee :) a backup won't hurt anyone.

The below documentation might be out of date. The one-line-install script will be more up to date. But the below still exists, because it has more content about how the integration works - and that might help you to understand a problem if and when it occurs. Please add, edit and comment to this document while testing the code.

Installing stretch on your Pi

  1. Install Strech on SD Card.
  2. Remove card and insert again.

Setting up the Phoniebox via a SSH connection saves the need for a monitor and a mouse. The following worked on Raspian stretch.

  • Flash your SD card with the Raspian image
  • Eject the card and insert it again. This should get the boot partition mounted.
  • In the boot partition, create a new empty file called ssh. This will enable the SSH server later.
  • Create another file in the same place called wpa_supplicant.conf. Set the file content according to the following example:
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
network={
	ssid="YOUR_NETWORK_NAME"
	psk="YOUR_PASSWORD"
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Note: This works for WPA-secured wifi networks, which should be the vast majority.

  • Save the file
  • Unmount and eject the card, insert it into the Raspy, boot.
  • Find out the IP address of the raspberry. Most Wifi routers have a user interface that lists all devices in the network with the IP address they got assigned.
  • Connect via ssh with username pi and password raspberry.
  • Jump back to the top of this document to walk through the other steps of the installation.

If you have a USB Sound Card: Correct the Sort Order

cat /proc/asound/modules

You get:

0 snd_bcm2835
1 snd_usb_audio

Change sort order:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

If file is empty, add the following lines:

options snd_usb_audio index=0
options snd_bcm2835 index=1
options snd slots=snd-usb-audio,snd-bcm2835

After reboot you get:

cat /proc/asound/modules

0 snd_usb_audio
1 snd_bcm2835

If you need Root-User, get your system prepared

sudo passwd root
sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Search for PermitRootLogin and change

#PermitRootLogin prohibit-password

to

PermitRootLogin yes

Install MOPIDY

Add the archive’s GPG key:

wget -q -O - https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Add the APT repo to your package sources:

sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list https://apt.mopidy.com/stretch.list

Install Mopidy and all dependencies:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mopidy

Finally, you need to set a couple of config values, and then you’re ready to run Mopidy. Alternatively you may want to have Mopidy run as a system service, automatically starting at boot.

To install one of the listed packages, e.g. mopidy-spotify, simply run the following:

sudo apt-get install libspotify12 python-cffi python-ply python-pycparser python-spotify
sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mopidy_spotify*
sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Mopidy_Spotify-*
cd
sudo rm -rf mopidy-spotify
sudo apt-get install git
git clone -b fix/web_api_playlists --single-branch https://github.com/princemaxwell/mopidy-spotify.git
cd mopidy-spotify
sudo python setup.py install
cd

Mopidy as service...

On modern systems using systemd you can enable the Mopidy service by running:

sudo systemctl enable mopidy

This will make Mopidy start when the system boots.

Install MOPIDY-IRIS Web Interface

sudo pip install Mopidy-Iris

Set the rights

sudo nano /etc/sudoers

Add this line to the end

mopidy ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mopidy_iris/system.sh

You have to reboot now.

sudo reboot

Configure Mopidy...

sudo nano /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf

This file should look like this (you first have to get client-id and client-secret here: https://www.mopidy.com/authenticate/ ) This must be done manually. Put your username, password, client_id, client_secret into the spotify section. The audio section has to be tested, because i don't know if "output = alsasink" works for everyone. "mixer_volume" is the start volume of phoniebox! attention: if you leave this blank, volume will be 100% after reboot!!

Install Phoniebox (if not done yet) - if you want to UPGRADE to spotify only, skip this step

cd; rm stretch-install-*; wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MiczFlor/RPi-Jukebox-RFID/master/scripts/installscripts/stretch-install-spotify.sh; chmod +x stretch-install-spotify.sh; ./stretch-install-spotify.sh

Change Playlists_Folders_Path to:

/home/pi/RPi-Jukebox-RFID/playlists

You have to disable MPD because we use mopidy instead and MPD is included there.

If you don't disable MPD here, mopidy will not run!!!

sudo systemctl disable mpd

Charset problems in display?

If you have problems with UTF-8 and ANSI, try to start raspi-config and change localisation to UTF-8. I don't know if it works, for me it does after several tries.

How to use Spotify?

When you right-click an album, a track or a playlist in MOPIDY IRIS or Spotify Client (share button), you get a Spotify URI. This Spotify URI must be used when registering a card with the following syntax:

Tracks: spotify:track:######################
Albums: spotify:album:######################
Playlists: spotify:user:username:playlist:######################
(e.g. spotify:user:spotify:playlist:37i9dQZF1DWUVpAXiEPK8P or 
spotify:user:tomorrowlandofficial:playlist:0yS25E7g9xQZ1Dst5SqUZn)

Podcast: spotify:show:###################### (This has not been tested yet!)

The information will be stored in a spotify.txt in an audiofolder.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
