    Spotify Plugin?

    I was wondering if anyone out there could write a proper Spotify plugin for RR? I know that embedding would work as I have seen it done but a proper plugin using spotify SDK (libspotify dll) would be great. I cannot code myself but i could make the necessary skin files if anyone would want to try. Thanks for reading.

    Libspotify is quite easy to use. We've added support for it in Navit : https://github.com/pgrandin/navit/bl...avit/spotify.c

    This code needs some polishing before it makes its way to the SVN repo, and I'm working on an echonest ( http://developer.echonest.com/sandbox/spotify.html ) extension for dynamic playlists / radios ( that libspotify does not provide ).

    Feel free to use the code, or ask questions about it.

    Thank you for that info. Please excuse my ignorance, so if i copy and paste the code into visual basic and build it would that make a plugin for RR? Again sorry but i have no programming knowledge whatsoever.

    Well, that code was written in C, so it will definitely not work in visual basic. But someone with basic C knowledge can probably build a plugin quite easily, the library is quite easy to use. Sorry I can't help more, I've never used RR so far.

    Not exactly, but it would be a starting block for someone who has experience at building plugins for RR.


    It would basically need converting to vb6 or vb.net (if the person doesn't know C very well) and then put into the plugin structure that RR has (vb6, vb.net and I think C examples are included in the installer).

    A few years ago I might have jumped in, but my coding time is limited now and I don't use spotify.
