Spotify Addon

Post by mccstumble » Wed Jul 27, 2011 8:40 am

I'm looking to see if any developers are working, or would be interested in working on a Spotify Addon for MediaMonkey.

My initial thoughts, regarding functionality, are along the lines of a plugin that is used in Logitech Squeezebox Server as made by Triode on the Squeezebox Community Forum, under 3rd Party Plugins (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=79706.)

It essentially lets you interact with your existing Spotify Account using Logitech's Squeezebox Server. The Plugin has most of the usual spotify options such as "What's New", "Playlists", "Radio", "Recommended Artists" and "Search Artists/Tracks/Albums" It may be something developers may want to look at, with a view to having similar functionality available to MediaMonkey.

Would appreciate any comments from developers interested in looking at this in more detail

Thanks in advance

@mcow

Yes it does. Well of a sort. They have split it into Decades and then Genres. It's not as good as LastFM but makes an excellent companion.

cheers
