Upgrading Spotify Connect On Pi Musicbox
2020, Mar 14
You might have noticed that when playing music using Spotify-connect on the Pi MusicBox that there is something weird going on. When changing songs or playlists the MusicBox doesn’t follow your commands.
It seems that this is due to an old version of the Librespot files. So login as root, using SSH, on your Pi MusicBox and execute the following command sequence;
curl -sSL https://dtcooper.github.io/raspotify/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -v - echo 'deb https://dtcooper.github.io/raspotify jessie main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspotify.list apt-get update apt-get -y install raspotify ln -f -s /usr/bin/librespot /opt/librespot/librespot reboot
Alternatively you can try;
service librespot stop cd /opt/librespot wget https://github.com/pimusicbox/librespot/releases/download/v20180529-1e69138/librespot-linux-armhf-raspberry_pi.zip unzip librespot-linux-armhf-raspberry_pi.zip rm librespot-linux-armhf-raspberry_pi.zip service librespot start
Now enjoy switching playlists and songs as this will work during Spotify-connect playback.
