Spotify Playlist Player

I am trying to start spotify in an automation but I get this error O_o
requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 404 Client Error: Not Found for url: https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/play

this is my automation.

  • service: media_player.select_source
    data_template:
    entity_id: media_player.spotify
    source: >
    google_home_mini
    - service: media_player.play_media
    data_template:
    entity_id: media_player.spotify
    media_content_type: playlist
    media_content_id: >
    spotify:user:spotify:playlist:37i9dQZEfdddffdfdfS

I noticed that the firs error is:
media id must be spotify uri

but I the uri is correct

using spotify connect I succeded in playing Spotify playlist without external devices acting like sources, Hass.io became the source for spotify.
this is good.

action:
  - data:
      payload: '{"state": "ON", "brightness": 0, "color": {"r": 0, "g": 0, "b": 255},
        "effect": "solid"}'

    service: mqtt.publish
  - data:
      brightness: 255
      transition: 600
    service: light.turn_on
  - delay: 10
  - data:

      message: Buongiorno Davide, ti auguro una buona giornata.
    service: tts.google_say
  - service: media_player.volume_set
    data_template:
      entity_id: media_player.spotify
      volume_level: 0.3
  - delay: 2
  - service: media_player.turn_on
    entity_id: media_player.spotify
  - delay: 2
  - data:
      entity_id: media_player.spotify
      source: Hass.io
    service: media_player.select_source
  - data:
      entity_id: media_player.spotify
      media_content_id: spotify:user:spotify:playlist:yourplaylist
      media_content_type: playlist
    service: media_player.play_media

this achieve what I am saying but it only output audio from the raspberry audio jack.
is it possible to output the audio via bluetooth speaker or google home using Hass.io as source that is never “expiring”?

In this way if I connect a jack to the raspberry all my Spotify automations works correctly. The problem is that I need to output the sound to a Bluetooth speaker and not with an audio jack connected to the raspberry.

I’m using HA version 0.89.0.dev0, implemented the Spotify like Wheezy shoved with packages.

  1. I can get some parts to work; but the source do not play in my Sonos speakers !
  2. And the automation part do not work at all !! (disabled this part of the script to debug the system)

Does anyone have a system running Spotify & Sonos ? please share code.

Does anyone have a system running Spotify & Sonos ? please share code.

Hey friends! I just wanted to share a card I’ve done called Spotify Card which can be found here: https://github.com/fondberg/spotify-card and it is similar to this project but uses the Spotify Web API.

That looks rather nifty, I’ll have to try that out.

Sonos is not supported. Read the bottom of this page.

Here is the code
https://pastebin.com/rCX5MfWh
Ill get this error when ill checks ths config.
Package spotify setup failed. Component script has duplicate key ‘alias’

Anyone that might be able to help me what to look for?!

Hello, I’m the author of spotcast which is a service to initiate Spotify playback on an idle chromecast device. I’m looking to get in contact with someone who has intimate knowledge about the media_player.py standard component to discuss possible merge between the components.

Hi everyone, does anyone know if this can work as part of a trigger e.g. if my door sensor triggers it can play a specific spotify playlist on my bose speaker??

I dont see why not
trigger the playlist as a script

spotify_door_sensor:
  alias: Spotify Door Sensor
  sequence:
  - service: media_player.play_media
    data_template:
      entity_id: media_player.favourite_speaker
      media_content_id: 'spotify:user:spotify:playlist:0ztMQWTqq8pM1ej5sf4lMn'
      media_content_type: 'playlist'

Then use the script in an automation

- id: 'door_sensor'
  alias: "Door Sensor start Playlist"
  trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id: sensor.door
    from: 'off'
    to: 'on'
  action:
  - service: script.turn_on
    data:
      entity_id: script.spotify_door_sensor

Thanks a lot for this! It’s exactly what i’m looking for i think.

Will give it ago tonight and see what happens, thanks!

Hey,

Sorry to be a pain but how do you go about getting the long spotify media_content_ID?

Is there something i need to do to do this?

I find the easiest way is to open the playlist on the web player on a PC. In the address bar will be the string you need.

I set up Spotify. I created albums in Spotify, then I created scripts for playback. Scripts work as long as Spotify runs on your PC or phone. If Spotify does not work on your PC or phone, then scripts will not work.

Here are the settings:

in media_player.yaml

- platform: spotify
  client_id: 0997a528e9e34c06846c91b955912345
  client_secret: 10596adc7c184bdd958f775e07954321

in scripts.yaml

spotify:
  alias: 'Spotify'
  sequence:
    - service: media_player.play_media
      data_template:
        entity_id: media_player.spotify
        media_content_id: 'spotify:user:spotify:playlist:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
        media_content_type: 'playlist'

I would like the scripts to work permanently for use in automation.
What else do I have to do?
THX

I added all these codes to the right files (i also created customizes.yaml).
How do i add into lovelace card?

Hi @Nicras, can you provide any help for how you added this as a card on lovelace?

Hello! Please help me out here.

The config is valid, everything looks good. When I try to start a playlist, I get an error in the log with this exception:

spotipy.client.SpotifyException: http status: 404, code:-1 - https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/volume?volume_percent=40:
Player command failed: No active device found

What am I doing wrong?

just reboot yuor raspberry, this plugin is a crap

Hi guys,

I am a bit lost, I tried a lot to setup spotify to run via a script and play a playlist on my google home mini.
Unfortunately it does not work.
I have the following script:

spotify_test_playback:
  alias: Spotify playback
  sequence:
  - service: media_player.media_play
    data_template:
      entity_id: media_player.office_speaker
      media_content_id: 'spotify:user:vladchiriloiu:spotify:playlist:3rzgkeEOq570xyFZlsv9mV'
      media_content_type: 'playlist'

But whenever I execute the script, it does not work and throws this error:
