2019-10-13 Thread Michael Herger

I have a strange issue I can't get to the bottom of, when I'm playing a
playlist or album on Spotty sometimes it will get to the end of the
track and stay there and not start playing the next track.


Unfortunately this misbehaviour is not uncommon :-(. It happens every 
now and then, and I haven't gotten to the root of it.

Behavior: Every playlist begins with several (typically 2-4) tracks play
3-5 seconds and jumps to next.
===  Eventually, it will begin to play complete tracks. But often,
playback will just stop for good.


Are you using a squeezelite player? Did you tweak its buffer settings?

I've just upgraded to Spotty v2.8 and am having problems with the helper
app. Adding in the legacy plugin and Aarch64 haven't helped. Grateful
for any guidance.
Operating system: Red Hat / x86_64-linux


Get rid of the two helper plugins - they're not for your processor 
architecture.


Then please describe what your problem actually is. Check the server.log

2019-10-13 Thread Michael Herger

Michael I went back to the original version of the
findSpotifyFolders.exe which did not work then, BUT running it now it
DOES work. So I would suspect that something has changed on my end that
prevented the program earlier but does not do now. That could be why it
suddently worked, when you had actually only added the console output.


ok, thanks for the feedback! That's a bit reassuring that my script 
isn't totally broken in some way :-).



Things that has changed are my spotify playlists (if anything there
could interefere)


That certainly could make a difference, as the Spotify application would 
update those files when the playlist changes.

It seems you nailed it!! First ran it without args and it listed files
preceeded with Candidate: and completed with Done.


Well... I'm confused: this version wasn't supposed to change anything 
but the output. But none of the actual featur set.


Also there's still no "Found..." line which should tell you what file it 
considered a match.



Second attempt I provided server ip and port. You will see the output
from the program below as well as the output on in the server log in the
attached files.


The server log file seems to be truncated. Was 
dd1cc5e211ef376ff97f36e94451ca9dd2df8828.file the only file it uploaded, 
or did it uploae more than that one?

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: Music & Artist Information plugin

2019-10-08 Thread Michael Herger

The above change does work - as in the default image can be overridden
by a skin. Looking at the code, I see you copy this to the user-defind
artist image folder as "artist.png" - why is this? Must admit, I didn't
have this folder defined so the change appeared to work. Why does the
code not just return "$defaultArtistImg" when there is no image? And
copy "$defaultArtistImg" when -Store placeholder file ("artist.missing")
if artist pictures are to be downloaded, but cannot be found.- is set?


Copying the file is older than the .missing thing. I did that as a hint 
for users what file to replace if they wanted to customize.


I've pushed an update dot MAI which should fix this behaviour. I used a 
PNG version of your artist icon put as artists.png in Material's images 
folder, and that seemed to work.


EXCEPT that caches would need to be wiped first... Otherwise both LMS 
and browsers would return the cached, but outdated copy.

MAI is blocking setting a custom cover. Looking at

$defaultArtistImg =

Are you saying this would work? Wouldn't that file be copied in to the

not longer sure this can be handled automatically, tbh.

For those that don't know what Michael means when he writes that they've

because some people were pirating the stream. Apparently keys were
revoked too, and that knocked some legit(?) third-party streams offline
completely too. Developers now must personally request authorization and

The 30 seconds preview: that is fine and yes I choose to hide them. But

What I'm seeing is that the 'Bestsellers' is no longer populated with

still are populated.
Here's the problem I tried to outline: all current Bestsellers are 
flagged as "preview only" (see the asterisk in the screenshot). Why that

Bestsellers remain empty.

Reviewed that code, and yes, it's not very verbose... or rather stupidly 
silent. It has some limitations as to what it considers a candidate to 
be uploaded. Would you have a large number of playlists? Many different 
folders?


You could enable logging for spotty=INFO in LMS, then run the import,

After having much pleasure from Spotify connect on all my devices (A
Touch and two Radios) the last two now no longer appear on the available
devices list in Spotify.


You don't happen to have multiple Spotify accounts configured in your 
Spotty? Or visitors playing on your radios?


As always: try to get a server.log with plugin.spotty=INFO set for a while.

A portscanner on 9000 wouldn’t find it.


Correct: as you wouldn't get your own IP address, but only a virtual 
host name, a simple IP scanner wouldn't find your LMS. A visitor would 
need to know your host name. That's different from (and quite a bit more 
secure than) simple port forwarding on the router, where an IP scanner 
would find you.

Serveo has the option to use SSH public key authentication but that
involves public/private rsa keys which are not a traditional username
and password and explains why they are to be left blank.


It's my understanding that this is not being used to protect access to 
the host, but the connection when using a custom domain of yours.


IMHO ngrok is kind of a cloud based reverse proxy with additional 
features, whereas serveo is much simpler, but mostly a port forwarding 
service. No added http features besides the https wrapper. But your LMS 
would be as exposed to the internet as if you did forward the port on 
your router.

2019-09-24 Thread Michael Herger

Unfortunately Spotify Connect has never been reliably stable for me.


You're not alone. Unfortunately the Connect feature has always been 
flaky for many users. I've seen random stops, too. But I haven't figured 
out what is causing them. Except for the fact that the whole setup is a 
bit of a hack. And having two masters who believe to be in charge of 
playback (LMS and Spotify) certainly doesn't help things: imagine that 
both can receive control commands like volume, or transport commands. 
And both should let the other know about them. But then they should not 
end in an infinite loop... Unless I'll have a great idea to approach 
this in a totally different way, I feare I'll never be able to really 
make it rock solid.

Ok, go to

This will log the cache key and where the line was called from. This

Of course - now I've uploaded the correct log.


So you've got two playlists with interesting names: "?", and the one 
with the smilies. Did you rename those, too?


Other than that: would you have Spotify installed on that computer? 
Would your username have extended characters?


And would you be able to modify a file to run some tests?

The odd thing is that Spotty manages to download and cache the playlists 
list. It's only after it has stored it in the cache that putting 
something in the cache would fail. But I don't see where Spotty would

That's the "interactive" stream. It's track based, unlike the "regular"

It seems like when using Spotify connect, only the vol- command is send,
even if I press vol+.


None of these is used: Spotify would give us an absolute value of the 
volume (percentage of max). Therefor the plugin doesn't know whether you 
pressed up or down or clicked a value on the volume bar.


How would LMS' web UI volume control work in your setup? You don't only 
have up/down there, but a volume bar, too. What happens if you click any 
value in there?

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Music and Artist Info

2019-08-30 Thread Michael Herger

Is there a minimum version of the server for this plug-in to work ? Or
some other pre-requisites ?


It certainly works best in 7.9. Some major features require at least 7.8.


On my "historical" SqueezeBox Server v7.6.2 on a Windows 7 VM, it
doesn't seem to work, whereas on an alternate test install of Logitech
Media Server 7.7.6 on an Synology NAS, it works (not for all entries,
even with "canonical" tagging as you put it, but on most of them)


I thought 7.7 was the minimum. But the repo file indeed seems to claim 
that 7.6 was good enough. Honestly I would be surprised if that was the 
case. 7.6 is so old... I'm not even sure I had started working on the 
Plugin when 7.6 was current.



 From the (debug level) logs, I see that for both of them chartlyrics
times out, but on the NAS, azlyrics gets a result, while on Win7 it gets
a "Redirection limit exceeded" error (same for genius).


This might actually be an issue with the Windows build: it comes with 
all Perl libraries included. Some of these, in particular SSL libraries, 
needed an update recently (past 12 months). Older builds, incl. older 
7.9 builds, would fail many requests. This has nothing to do with the 
plugin itself, but really is a change in the environment, the internet.



On the other hand, on the NAS, if azlyrics doesn't found anything (404),
it seems genius is not called because od the following error :
Slim::Networking::IO::Select::__ANON__ (147) Error: Select task failed
calling Slim::Networking::Async::_async_read: Attempt to reload
Plugins/MusicArtistInfo/Lyrics/Genius.pm aborted.


Is there more context in the server.log?


Ideally on the Win7 VM because it has the "complete" set-up (with
MusicIP etc.), but I could very well update it to 7.7.6


There's little to no reason not to go straight to the latest 7.9.2 
nightly. In particular if you want to use this plugin, as eg. artist 
artwork would not work with 7.7.x.



(I don't want to go "to far" in newer versions, because I make extensive
use of erland's plug-ins and their features are more important to me
than lyrics, although it would be a cool bonus)


I don't think those plugins are incompatible with 7.9.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] [Announce] Spotty 2.8.x - Spotify Connect for your Squeezebox

2019-08-30 Thread Michael Herger

Quick check with you on this - this question has been asked a number of
times by me and other users - but was not responded directly - so I
thought I wanna ask one more time before I give up


It has been answered before - this thread (and others related to Spotty) 
is long... answers can easily be missed. That's why I prefer to start 
specific threads, rather than post all kinds of problems to one generic 
thread like this one... But anyway:



[19-07-12 13:43:32.3858] Plugins::Spotty::Connect:: DaemonManager::
checkAPIConnectPlayers (208) Connect daemon is running, but not
connected - shutting down to force restart: 02:d0:08:40:f1:ef


The underlying problem is that the spotty daemon sometimes loses 
connection to Spotify's servers. Or Spotify's servers decide to no 
longer list it as connected. Really, I don't understand what's going on. 
That's the reason why this problem has been around for a while and I 
have failed to deliver a solution.


What Spotty attempts to do in this situation is to restart the deamon. 
After that it would be accessible through Connect again. But as the 
check whether it's still working or not is timer based, there's always a 
gap where the device is not seen by Spotify. If you happen to need a 
track change in such a moment, then playback will stop.


I could certainly increase the polling rate to make that window smaller. 
But this call alone already represents about 10x the number of other 
requests being used by Spotty. It's hundreds of thousands of calls every 
day across all installations. Cutting the interval in half would double 
the number of requests etc. I fear at some point Spotify could rate

Hi Michael - are you planning to update the app to enable selection of
the two new streams as well as the existing pair? Presumably this isn't
just an automatic process.


Should be available later today. It took a little longer as I wanted to 
re-factor the code to simplify these changes in the future. Because 
you're right, it's far from automatic...

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] [Announce] Radio Paradise Lossless Streaming (Plugin v2)

2019-08-29 Thread Michael Herger

By the way Michael, I recently noticed in some situations here the app
will continue to access the data API while the music is paused. Not a
problem, just interesting. In SLX, playing the Main FLAC Interactive
stream in SLX, I paused the music, put my PC to sleep, then later woke
the PC up, and with the music still paused I notice the album art,
artist, and track name continued to change.


You mention SLX. Would you see the same on other UIs, too? Eg. if you 
left the web UI open in browser? Is putting the computer to sleep key to 
the issue?

I'm sorry, I can't give you that help.


But I'm stuck on the SSL installation. I tried the commands I found
(forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?107615-Announce-Spotty-v1-1-0=890362=1#post890362)
but without success as IPKG is not recognized and cannot be installed

You'd better head over to some QNAP forum. This is far out of scope of

Another advice many have followed is to use a Raspberry Pi to run LMS, 
and connect it to the music stored on your NAS. I've gone that way for 
the same reason (but a different brand of NAS).

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] [Announce] Spotty 2.8.x - Spotify Connect for your Squeezebox

2019-08-22 Thread Michael Herger

Does anyone know if Spotty supports the "autoplay" function?


Unfortunately support for many of the "dynamic" Spotify features is 
spotty (pun intended). I thought it did work. But I'm rarely using 
Connect mode...


My workaround is to use the Don't Stop The Music (DSTM) feature, which 
can be configured to use Spotty to continue whatever you were listening to.



For reference, LMS is running on a RPi (7.9.2 - 1562753347), Spotty
2.8.4, and my main player is piCorePlayer (so Squeezelite).
I'm also on a premium account.


What OS are you using? And what spotty binary (see 
Settings/Advanced/Spotty)?

2019-08-18 Thread Michael Herger

I have reinstalled a clean version of LMS and then it works, but as soon
as I add the Spotty Plugin v2.8, it fails as above.


I have seen issues where LMS would hang for quite a bit while trying to 
authenticate in the past, too. I tried to mitigate it. But eventually I 
think the behaviour was also improved by some more tweaks to HTTPS 
handling. Please make sure you run the latest and greatest LMS code (I 
think the changes were around end of 2018 or very early 2019).

There's one thing that is strange but maybe has nothing to do with the
plugin. The difference in the loudness is sometimes really high. You
play one song, almost hear nothing and increase the volume...NExt song
could be upt to about 10db more (I did a measure with a few examples).


Do you have normalization enabled (Settings/Player/Audio)? If so, make 
sure you haven't disabled it for Spotty (Settings/Player/Spotty).

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Touch vs. SQB Classic with TIDAL plug

2019-08-18 Thread Michael Herger

Decided to give Tidal a try and quickly noticed that my old SQB classic
have problems with playing Tidal FLAC's without glitches and
stuttering.

Q ; is the Tidal plugin even supposed to work with the old SQB classic?


Yes, it should work. Alas...


If it is, what could be done to have it play the flac stream correctly?


the problem with the Classic and streaming FLAC is its minuscule buffer 
compared to the Touch. It can only buffer very few seconds of audio 
data. The slightest hiccup in your connection (or the player's) can lead 
to re-buffering and hiccups.



I'm not using LMS since that is the whole idea for me, ie not have to
rely on running a home server. I also tested with the player connected
ta LMS (7.9.2.somthing) but it makes no difference.


LMS would allow you to use "proxied streaming". In this setup the audio 
data would be proxied through your LMS, which gives a somewhat improved 
behaviour.



Also worth mentioning is that it seems that it's not all files that
doesn't play correctly. But playing the same "problem" files again and
again show the same stuttering + there's no difference if I connect by
wire or wifi .


I think there have been issues with some FLAC files using a really high 
compression. Maybe you could give us the track's URL so somebody can verify?

Under Spotty > Search there is a history of previous search results.  To
the right, the more items vertical ellipses (which generally brings up a
pop-up menu) takes you to another page, where you can Delete the
selected item.

Would it be possible to bring up a pop-up menu which has a Delete item

You just said that menu was there (and yes, it is, just verified it). 
I'm not sure what you're asking for. Clock the dotdotdot icon on any

@Michael - what ID am I supposed to use here?


I'm not sure what's going on here. What exact query are you using? It 
would probably also be helpful to get a copy of the two files resulting 
in such different behaviour 
(https://www.dropbox.com/request/T3RctyzGgNg0oFDubq6a).


Skimming related code I see some references to how you've configured 
your artist browsing. Eg. whether you have one single list, or distinct 
lists for all/main artists. Not sure whether it really comes into play, 
as it also depends on the query you're using... it all seems rather 
complicated an convoluted :-/



Should I just being using *trackartist_ids* if set, falling back to
*artist_ids* if not?
I _think_ trackartist_ids is more specific, only listing contributors of 
the track artist role, whereas artist_id would be anything. So yes, that 
might work.

I'm curious if it would be possible to have a screensaver display a

JiveLite/SqueezePlay can't display web pages. They don't have a browser 
built-in.

this option, when Opera mobile was great eg. on Nokia's phones, before

I have (partially) resolved my issue; it now works but it's not as

allow a specific port for the executable if possible rather than opening

spotty.exe and Spotty Connect?


Most likely it's port 5353/UDP you're looking for.
