[NEWBIE] Can't play Spotify songs - "Extension disabled"


#1

Hello,

Newbie disclaimer— Not being a proper developer, I may have missed things that should have been obvious. Thank you in advance for your patience.

I’m trying to replicate the music-cards project, but keep getting stuck.

No problem to install a disk image on the SD card, and get the Raspberry to run. Once I could access the web interface, I set up Spotify on /settings (as well as Wi-Fi and Hifiberry Digi)

I can see/browse my Songs, but they won’t play. Sound is working, I can play Radio stations fine.

In the config.ini file, I can see values for client_id and client_secret, but here’s what I get entering mopidy config in my Terminal (connected via SSH):

[spotify_web]
enabled = false  ; Extension disabled due to config errors.
client_id =   ; Must be set.
client_secret =   ; Must be set.
mopidy_token_url = https://auth.mopidy.com/spotify/token
spotify_token_url = https://accounts.spotify.com/api/token
use_mopidy_oauth_bridge = true
refresh_token = please configure if you want to use spotify auth instead of mopidy swap service

I tried to update my Spotify password to remove special characters as this seems to cause issues, but it is not the case for me. I also tried to update SSH, Mopify, etc. not really knowing what I was doing.

I run mopidy 1.1.2. I don’t know version of Pi MusicBox I have, can’t find where the info is. :confused:

Any advice? Should I retry from scratch? I’ll happily give more details.

You would need to run service mopidy run config to see the service config in use. You are interested in the Spotify extension rather than the Spotify_Web extension as that’s what actually plays the music. But either way, if you can see your playlists and search then everything is OK there. Can you provide the config (by running the command above) and the log file /var/log/mopidy/mopidy.log

mopidy.log

I got weird stuff here.

First I ran an ls command in the folder.

root@MusicBox:/var/log/mopidy# ls
mopidy.log  mopidy.log.1  mopidy.log.2.gz

Nothing is displayed with cat mopidy.log. I have results for mopidy.log.1

root@MusicBox:/var/log/mopidy# cat mopidy.log.1

As the errors in the config and the log state:

client_id =   ; Must be set.
client_secret =   ; Must be set

You MUST set these two values. Visit https://www.mopidy.com/authenticate/ to obtain them.


#5

I set those in /musicbox/settings. They do appear in spotify_web in mopidy.log—should I enter them manually in $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/mopidy/spotify ?


#6

The same values need to appear for both [spotify] and [spotify_web] sections in /boot/config/settings.ini. What version are you running here?


#7

I see this in settings.ini:

# -----------
# | Spotify |
# -----------
# https://github.com/mopidy/mopidy-spotify
[spotify]
# Supply your PREMIUM account credentials to enable Spotify
enabled = true
username = myspotifyusername
password = myspotifypassword
# The bitrate, the quality of the music played by Spotify, can be set to 96, 160 (default) or 320
bitrate = 320
cache_dir = ""

# ---------------
# | Spotify-Web |
# ---------------
# https://github.com/lfcabend/mopidy-spotify-web
# Supply your credentials obtained from https://www.mopidy.com/authenticate
[spotify_web]
enabled = true
client_id = 968d4985-67cf-4bef-9c95-fc058ks9a47b
client_secret = XjEJSJmU_pklpa4lIEiPjUEY8UzOldP-T2accZMaqTk=

(id/secret aren’t actual values, but they exist.)

Should I copy/paste the two lines from Spotify-Web to Spotify?

How can I know which version I’m running? (It should be the last one, I just installed it 2 weeks ago).


#8

Yes, you should do that as I said in my previous post.


#9

And it works! Huge thank you :smiley:
