Yamaha Network Receiver & Spotify


Does anyone know how to get a Yamaha network receiver to play a Spotify playlist. I can power it on, set the source and play net radio etc. Spotify is proving problematic.


You can send playlists to Spotify using the “media_content_type”: “playlist” , which is part of the [media_player.play_media](https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/media_player/#service-media_playerplay_media) service, for example:

Did this not work for you?

What have you tried?

Sadly not but I think this may be a limitation of the Yamaha Network (musiccast) receiver (I have an RX-V685).

I receive the below error. If I change to have the full http/https url the source on the receiver changes to ‘server’

Failed to call service script/test. Only presets, media from media browser and http URLs are supported

oddly enough i found some post online referencing media_player.spotify. If i try to use this I receive an ‘Integrtion not found’ error when trying to save. I have the spotify entry in config.yaml. do you have to add spotify as a media player in config.yaml and not just ‘spotify’?

Any ideas?
