Raspberry Pi 4 + Spotify + Amp with Spotify Connect

Wed Jun 26, 2019 1:51 pm

Hello!

I'm looking to buy the new Pi and add a 7" screen to it. What I want is to run the Pi with Spotify all the time. On the little screen I want to choose a track and play, then choose it to play on my amp using Spotify connect. Is this possible on a Pi? I do not wish to use cables just Spotify connect. Which rom/os should I use? Will it work with a Spotify Web Player? Or is there an app? Thanks in advance.

I believe Spotify Web Player requires a Web Browser with DRM.

Due to legalities Raspbian's chromium-browser does not include Widevine DRM, but a search of these forums will find a way to add.

YMMV


Alternatively try Vivaldi Browser:
