I'm currently working on a new plugin, which is basically a remote for Spotify. With this plugin you can play music from Spotify "in" MediaPortal without having a Premium subscription. The only requirement is to have Spotify loaded in the background.

I hope to have the basics working this month and provide you with an early alpha version.

What do you think of this?

Unfortunately the source code of Spotifier is gone into Rockstar plugin. So, I have to do it all myself. Maybe I can use some code from Rockstar.

Hi Dragy,

hope your project is ging forward. I love using MP for listening to music. The control of Spotify via MP would be a great and powerful Plugin essential for a media center as it should be. Unlimited music, exploring and scrobbeling music in a convenient way.

Looking forward to your alpha!

Unfortunately I couldn't work on this because of another project I unexpectedly had to work. I still want to make this plugin, but I don't know when it will be ready or even when I can start.
