Mopidy extension for playing music from Spotify.

Dependencies

  • A Spotify Premium subscription. Mopidy-Spotify will not work with Spotify Free, just Spotify Premium.
  • 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 Mopidy-Spotify. Go to http://www.spotify.com/account/set-device-password/, login with your Facebook account, and follow the instructions.
  • libspotify >= 12, < 13. The official C library from the Spotify developer site. The package is available as libspotify12 from apt.mopidy.com.
  • pyspotify >= 2.0. The libspotify Python wrapper. The package is available as python-spotify from apt.mopidy.com or pyspotify on PyPI. See https://pyspotify.mopidy.com/en/latest/installation/ for how to install it and its dependencies on most platforms.
  • Mopidy >= 1.1. The music server that Mopidy-Spotify extends.

If you install Mopidy-Spotify from apt.mopidy.com, AUR, or Homebrew, these dependencies are installed automatically.

  • spotify/volume_normalization: Whether volume normalization is active or not. Defaults to true.
  • spotify/timeout: Seconds before giving up waiting for search results, etc. Defaults to 10.
