SPOTIFY - Play Button

Postby livewirer on Sat Apr 14, 2012 9:00 pm

This week SPOTIFY announced they have launched a new "play button"
You will see it on sites like the Guardian who are embedding it into their review pages.
The new play button which allows users to embed any track from the streaming service's vast catalogue on other web pages.
See NME news and examples - http://www.nme.com/news/spotify/63167

The service, which takes the form of a Soundcloud-style web widget, means that any user can post a track of their choice online and stream it from Spotify. NME.COM editor Luke Lewis said: "We've been creating Spotify playlists to enhance our blog posts for some time now, but we've never been able to embed them within the page itself. So this is a really cool new feature. It means that, from now on, when users read our album/track reviews, list features, or new band recommendations, they'll be able to stream the tracks instantly via Spotify, within NME.COM – without firing up the application, or opening a new window."

QUESTION - DOes it work for you :?:

I'm using IE8 as my browser with WIN XP.
My Anti Virus Firewall allows the use of Spotify and I can can open and close it at will.

When I click to play a Spotify track embedded on a music site like NME I get the warning:
"Do you want to allow this website to open a program on your computer"
It will not just play the track like a Youtube or Soundcloud link would do.
It then wants me to Download Spotify when I already have it installed?
If Spotify opens it does not play the track I clicked on the website.
*** The idea is though that you DON'T need to fire up Spotify. It is meant to work in the background ***

If I already have Spotify open it still refuses to play a track.
Are you experiencing similar problems :?: I'm using the FREE service do you have to be a paid subscriber :?:

Seems like since America bought into the Spotify brand that many more Country albums have become available.
Some are appearing before they are actually released in the UK.
A surprisingly number of artists/ music sites now embed the tracks or share links on Facebook.
Not sure if its in their interests, but "Hey Ho" as The Lumineers would say!

Have you created any playlists? Obama has even joined it so you might get the party started at the White House!

Hi Frenchy
Good spot on Steely Dan's AJA
Way too good for a SPOTIFY stream.
It's what HI FI's were made for. I was almost once tempted to buy the gold disc version.
The Classic Albums series that covered this album was superb. "AJA" was named after an Asian beauty.

Loved the Donald Fagen solo's , "Nightfly" was also an audiophile's delight.
How have we become accustomed that compressed to hell music on MP3 is the acceptable norm.
I never did track down the copy of Steely Dan's "FM" that isn't the jazz version.
I was due to see them in the mid 70's at their peak, got to the venue only to find it was cancelled (Donald Fagen throat infection apparently)
They never did re-arrange the shows or return to the UK for a very long time.
I waited till 2002 ? to see them twice in London.

What playlist is the above young lady listening to do you think?

I often listen to AccueRadio on line.

Lots of choices.
If the shoe fits, wear it.
If the truth hurts, bear it.

I've not been able to listen to Spotify all week with my desktop application it says:
I've used up my 10 hours / Month allowance and that I need to sign up to unlimited or premium advert free.

There is no way I have even listened to 5 hours.
If just by sampling a section of a track and skipping to the next are they counting it as complete album plays?
If you listen to embed Spotify tracks on websites do they count that too?
Anyone experience this problem?

Ultimate insult - Had an email alert from SPOTIFY telling me that "I Get So Lonesome" by Allen Karl is now available :?

I have however found I can use Spotify in Webplayer format though not quite as convenient.

Country Album sales 25% down so far in 2014 in America.
Its hardly surprising when most of new albums end up on Spotify.
Hearing so many NON interactive country radio shows, a big fall off in numbers listening and a total lack of Facebook feedback on UK's supposedly Top 2 country Internet stations I think radio are losing listeners in droves.

The BBC encourage you to PLAYLIST with their BBC Playlister tool which works with the Spotify service
"Spotify is like a brilliant record shop in the comfort of your own home." - Jools Holland

So many TV, Mobile and Digital newspaper packages are now throwing in Spotify Premium for FREE

Spotify offers FREE mobile service to Android and iOS - There's a new way to stream music for FREE on your phone:
