There was a reasonably good spotify addon for Kodi for some time, I used to use it but haven’t in a while and I believe that it has fallen out of date and may not be working anymore. Check on forum.kodi.tv under the addons section and you should see it there.
Yeah spotlight seems to be the best addon, some people have been experiencing connectivity issue i.e. Errno 111
The project itself hasn’t been updated for over 6 months and the issue section of the repo keeps piling up…
Seems cool, haven’t tried that yet. But integrating that (or something like it) into an easily installed package from the App Store allowing osmc to serve as a spotify connect receiver would be awesome
I’ve had some time to test out the spotlight addon now but I simply can’t get it to work on OSMC. Tried all releases including some forks. Reading on the kodi-forum some people report success on openelec with the latest version overriding platform detection and setting it to Linux Armv7 (which in itself requires modifying the settings.xml file of the addon when using the one from the official repo)
Even so I get the infamous errno 111 - Connection refused
SpotiMC is broken but can start playing music from spotify. If you leave the addon the GUI freezes up though, so you can’t change music.
make sure that port 8000 is free and available so nothing else is hogging it thats the port that spotilight uses to communicate with Spotify. If its used by other programs you can change it to a free port under advanced settings.
It should install pyspotify per default but if it doesnt then fire up a ssh client and connect to osmc and type:
