    Why use login/password? Use discovery mode.

    If you want to use Kodi volume, use Kodi mode (set mode in addon settings)

    The name of the currently playing song is displayed on the screen in both modes, not in OSD though.

    TL;DR: discovery mode doesn't work.

    Long answer: Because my LibreElec box is on a wired network which is routed to the Wi-Fi network, but apparently this is not sufficient for LibreSpot. I even configured Avahi in router mode on the router (necessary for Kore to find Kodi) but that's not enough for Spotify's discovery mode (I haven't investigated which kind of protocol it speaks).

    After using it a bit, I have 3 remarks:

    - there's no indication if the login/passwd is wrong

    - the volume control doesn't use the main Kodi volume

    - the name of the currently playing song isn't displayed

    Is there a bugtracker somewhere for these ?

    Mmkaye, so I wiped my Libreelec install afresh, reinstalled the Librespot addon, configured an email/passwd and now it works fine. Go figure.

    Anyway sorry for wasting your time and thanks a lot for that great plugin !

    Yes I understood. It's just that I tried and it didn't work. So I connected a web browser to spotify and tried to find it with my phone: it worked, I can find the browser in the spotify app's list of available devices, and control the web browser's music from my phone.

    But I can't find my Kodi device from my phone.

    Strange ... I configured the addon with my username and password, rebooted my Libreelec box and now I have a black screen with just the pointer following the mouse. Like if Librespot was hanging on connection.

    Am I supposed to see something even if I still don't have a premium account (I'd like to see if it might work before paying) ? The android Spotify app doesn't show any available TV/PC/HiFi to listen music.

    My Kodi device has no WiFi but it's on the same network, is visible, the Kore android app sees it fine.


    I'm trying to use the addon, but the 'execute' button stays greyed wether I use the default settings or when I enter some login/pass in the config; I see nothing in the journal. Is there something I'm missing ?

    OK, I removed, rebooted, paired my phone (and launched some music streamed to BT), and then:

    1. zbox:~ # systemctl stop kodi
    2. zbox:~ # pactl load-module module-udev-detect
    3. 18
    4. zbox:~ # pactl list short sinks
    5. 1    alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo    module-alsa-card.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    RUNNING
    6. zbox:~ # pactl list short sources
    7. 1    bluez_source.88_07_4B_73_B9_9A    module-bluez5-device.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    RUNNING
    8. 2    alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor    module-alsa-card.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    IDLE
    9. 3    alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo    module-alsa-card.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    SUSPENDED

    Still no HDMI ...

    The phone is currently streaming to the libreelec box - but no sound is there.
    I tried with all three sinks available as default sink.

    I think I know what happens:
    - I had already loaded the module-udev-detect in .config/, so it fails to load again, that's normal and harmless.
    - in the pulseaudio sinks I can only see (apparently) the unused line out output, not the HDMI output (which is used for sound output); how can I see the HDMI output ?

    I don't know either. Let me be more explicit:

    1. zbox:~ # systemctl stop kodi
    2. zbox:~ # pactl load-module module-udev-detect
    3. Failure: Module initialization failed
    4. zbox:~ #

    I don't have a Raspberry Pi, it's a Zotac Z-Box, an intel-based computer, with a BT dongle used mainly for a BT keyboard, but with whom I'd like to stream audio from my phone.

    No it doesn't:

    But it's there: my phone is paired with LibreElec, and accepts to stream music over BT; the problem is that nothing happens on the Kodi side, the audio is just lost somewhere.

    Hi, here's what I've got when I try:

    1. zbox:~ # pactl load-module module-udev-detect
    2. Failure: Module initialization failed
    3. zbox:~ # pactl list short sources
    4. 1    alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor    module-alsa-card.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    SUSPENDED
    5. 2    alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo    module-alsa-card.c    s16le 2ch 44100Hz    SUSPENDED

    Nothing in the dmesg. Anyone has an idea why ?

    I'm fully for a checkbox in the settings saying "allow bluetooth streaming to this device".
