Re: Spotify on the pi

You need to change your user agent string using this code or an chromium extension #Note that you have to start chrome like this, it won't work if you run it while chrome is already running #!/bin/sh exec chromium-browser --app="https://play.spotify.com/" --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_6...

Re: Spotify on the pi

I understand that the spotify app is not supported for the pi and there are several mediocre solutions/alternatives. So my conclusion is that spotify on rpi is just... not finished yet. I already had spotify as a plugin for kodi. Though it works, the UI is... meh. And I wanted spotify more as a stan...

I dont want to set up a server to stream music. No I just want to run Spotify like I do on my PC and play music. How do I do that? When I e...

Yes that seems to work DISPLAY=:0 chromium-browser

Could you perhaps also tell me how I can launch the browser fullscreen? Just like you press F11??

Re: Good kodi plugins

But you can also just use a web browser and point it at your Pi's IP address, as the new web interface (chorus 2) is very capable in itself. I am not sure what you are saying there? I also thought of using a bluetooth app for use in a Qt or Python app. I still have an arduino esplora with a bluetoo...

Re: Good kodi plugins

Kodi isn't designed to support DRM'd stuff like Netflix, as they want you to use their own apps/portals so they can do their background stuff like user profiling/tracking etc. Plus of course the DRM itself means that the media can't be directly played back on an open-source player like Kodi as Netf...

Re: Good kodi plugins

I have installed the iptv client as well as spotify but the iptv is not going to work and it is unfixable. This is because of the provider, they use their own closed-system interactive IPTV system with which only their decoders can work with. However I have read something that the Rpi is able to use...

Questions about "illegal" kodi plugins are not allowed here. IPTV: Check the kodi-pvr-iptvsimple plugin (available from the repository). If it can be used and how to configure it depends on the services supported by your provider. I am looking on the kodi page but I cannot even find this PVR plugin...

Duration Test of the Pi's SD

I have subjected my Pi 3 to a duration test. I am letting an Arduino switch a relais which turns the power on/off. The goal is to reach 10 years of service which for us means about 7300 cold reboots. The power cut-off finds place after my application has started. At this point no data will be writte...

No?

Anyways I found the answer. The application picks fonts out of: "/usr/local/qt5pi/lib/fonts". In that folder there was only the dejavu fonts. I downloaded a Chinese and Thai font, moved them to that folder. And there they were... Chinese and Thai lettres.

it does not connect.

I'll now try it on the rpi directly
