Dianemo: Several spotify streams, multi source possible?
« on: December 13, 2014, 06:20:36 pm »
Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to configure different spotify accounts, eg one for each user or if it is possible to play for ex one spotify stream in one room and another spotify stream in another room.

Best Regards Krister

Currently we support multiple spotify premium streams from a single account ie two different streams played simultaneously...but support for this capability seems to 'come and go' from Spotify. So the reliable answer is 'your mileage may vary'.

Playing a single Spotify Premium stream, using a single Spotify Premium account, to multiple Squeezeboxes works fine though.

Supporting multiple Spotify Premium accounts on a single system is not supported currently. Implementing that capability would need some thought as we have no UI to choose or arbitrate between the two accounts currently and I'm not sure that a single LMS server would be able to support multiple accounts either - in fact I strongly suspect it would not. That's not to say it would be impossible to implement...just that it would not be as simple as it might seem!

Does that answer your question? If not let me know.

All the best

Hi Andy

Thank You very much for your answer.
I am intrested in getting a complete solution for media and home automation and is looking into Dianemo.
Today i am running LMS with the spotify plugin from Triode and have added several entries of the spotify plugin with different spotify accounts (spotify family subscription). Ex: https://github.com/mika-fischer/triode-spotify-clone

As i only use spotify for music it is of great importance to be able to use multiple streams.

Hi Krister,

Well we use the Triode plugin for Spotify Premium access inside LMS and we do not modify or change LMS at all. So I can't see why if this Triode-Spotify-Clone version is already working for you currently in LMS that it would not work equally well in Dianemo + LMS too.

How do you choose which account to use when streaming to a specific Squeezebox?

So my feeling is that this should work without problems in Dianemo - and if there are any they could be fixed easily.

Let me know if you have more questions.

All the best

Andy

Using the https://github.com/mika-fischer/triode-spotify-clone to install several Triode plugins in Dianemo/LMS, each with a separate Spotify Premium account will work fine. Selecting which account to use for a specific Squeezebox/SqueezeLite could be fixed based on the room/zone too.

The only limitation then, which has nothing to do with Dianemo obviously, is what broadband bandwidth you have available and any data caps that might be part of your ISP's service plan. Assuming these are not an issue then this route to multiple Spotify Streams will work fine.

All the best
