Howto: Spotify on your Dreambox - 27-December-2013, 20:37

You will need:
A Windows PC with Spotify client installed.
DSBridge (dsbridge - Project Hosting on Google Code)
A Dreambox

1) Download the latest DSBridge module to your Computer, and unzip the files into your Spotify Directory, for example c:\Program Files\Spotify\
2) Start the Spotify app, and you should see a small blue icon appear on your Toolbar. If you hover your mouse over the icon, it should show you the default port it is running on (8124 is the default I think).
3) Create a new text file. Within the text file, enter the lines
http://<computer ip>:8124​
Changing <computer ip> to match the IP address of your computer and 8124 to the port that DSBridge is running upon.
Save the file as an M3U playlist file, e.g. Spotty.m3u
Then, FTP this file to a memorable location on your dreambox, e.g. /mnt/hdd/
4) Start a song playing in Spotify - your computer will continue to play the audio through your speakers.
5) Open with the dreambox media player the file of point 3)
6) After a few seconds the sound on your computer should mute, and the audio will start playing on the Dreambox. The blue DSBridge icon on your toolbar should also turn green. Although it doesn't work brilliantly, the DM should also show what track is playing in the EPG bar.

Or, ANY Apple Device that supports AirPlay :P

cause you can simply stream Spotify via AirPlay to your Enigma2 powered box with either OpenAirPlay or AirPlayer installed ;-)
