Spotify Connect icon on New Spotify Plugin

I noticed that the icon for Spotify Connect in the new Spotify plugin has changed from a speaker to an amplifier.

pi_casi is the new Spotify plugin (3.0.3)
pi_multi is the old Spotify Connect plugin (3.0.7)

Is there any way I can change it back to a speaker on the new plugin?

May i ask why this would make sense to you and be important ?

Best Regards

If there is a good reason we can enable an advanced setting to do so.

I use Volumio to convert my old stereos to Spotify/multiroom speakers.
There are a few AV receivers in my house which use the AV receiver icon as well.
The speaker icon was more fitting in my use case, and made it easier to quickly tell apart my devices at a glance.

I realize this is probably a pretty minor thing for most users, but the ability to change the icon would be a nice addition :slight_smile:

I don’t want to make the mistake as saying this is “easy”, but the .toml file sets the device-type to “AVR”, turning it into “speaker” should do that trick :wink: (be aware this resets after the plugin is updated probably)

Do you mean volspotify.tmpl?
I cant see any toml file in /data/plugins/music_service/spop

Ok, I changed it in the .tmpl file and that did the trick!
If it was a UI option, that would be really great, but for now this works! Thanks!

i believe these are the items:

  • “computer”: Laptop or desktop computer device
  • “tablet”: Tablet PC device
  • “smartphone”: Smartphone device
  • “speaker”: Speaker device
  • “tv”: Television device
  • “avr”: Audio/Video receiver device
  • “stb”: Set-Top Box device
  • “automobile”: Car device

[edit] removed non-working ones as mentioned by lizard_dude.

Tested it some just now.

These work:

  • computer
  • tablet
  • smartphone
  • speaker
  • tv
  • avr
  • stb (same icon as speaker)

If set to any of these, the device no longer shows up on Spotify Connect:

  • audio_dongle
  • game_console
  • cast_video
  • cast_audio

There should be one more device type, resembling a speaker group. Not sure if it can be achieved though

maybe “speaker_group” will do the trick. haven’t tested though.

Tried “speaker_group” and “speakers”, they didn’t work unfortunately.

Are there any more resources online for which values could be usable?

i haven’t been able to find any other list then the one given, sorry.
