Spotify connected, yet won't play


I have been trying to get modipy 3.0.2 working on my Pi zero W, installed using February’s Buster build of Raspbian. I am using it with a Pirate Audio. I added the Spotify and local extensions.

I have a regular, free Spotify account. It plays music via the browser. I tried to populate the config file with the username set to the username, as well as the email address. Spotify indicates a unique username for the account, different than the email address used for the web log-in. none work anyway. I received the token, and am using the authentication client ID and secret received.

My playlist appears in modipy, which seems to indicate the credentials are ok, and modipy is able to communicate properly. Or am I understanding this wrong? outside of “authorized” and an access token, am I supposed to see anything else?

Any help appreciated!

I think it’s because you need Spotify Premium, docs here

Argh. It’s the first Dependencies on top of that. Oh well. Thanks for pointing this out. I will uninstall I guess then.
