I try to run a spotify-app
from Marcel Veldt
under Kodi Jarvis (LibreElec - latest release).
I tried it with this howto https://seo-michael.co.uk/how-to-install-spotify-for-kodi-beta/
I got stuck and the following point
Select Music > Add-Ons
Select Spotify THE ADD-ON WILL NOT OPEN
You will now have to back out of Kodi and check your web browser as you will need to login to Spotify
You must now authorise the add-on so it has access to your Spotify account
You should now be able to open the add-on in Kodi and have access to your
Spotify account Spotify is now installed and as usual the add-on can be accessed via MUSIC > Add-Ons > Spotify from your home screen.
I get to install the app, I even updated it to the latest (beta) version, I just don't get it what I do have to do after "THE ADD-ON WILL NOT OPEN". If I want to open spotify it gives a login error:
Login error: argument 2: :'asci' codec can't encode character u'\u0107' in position 4: ordinal not in range(128)
Again, no clue.
Attempts to "authorise the add-on" like it is said in the post (http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=265356&pid=2289336#pid2289336) failed for me.
- install the spotify client on a pc with a browser
- open the spotify client and accept the authentication request in the browser.
- now, on the filesystem navigate to kodi userdata\addon_data\plugin.audio.spotify and copy the cache file to the same location on your pi
I have Spotify installed under Ubuntu, but I don't have a clue - where the mentioned folder should be. Does anybody have a clue how to solve this?
As I use LibreElec I don't have a webbrowser outside Kodi so I wanted to install chromium as workaround, and it seems like chromium is not provided via LibreElec repo at the moment Link: h**ps://forum.libreelec.tv/thread-3846.html Have to find another way / a chromium .zip to install via "sideload" as a workaround
Edit2: browser.chromium-8.0.104.zip install failed Edit3: windows cache workaround for libreElec didn't work aswell for me (I still get the mentioned login error)
