How can I stream the music from Spotify to my SoundBridge? Is this even possible?

The setup I describe can play any audio source that comes over your PC speakers as a stream that can be played on the SoundBridge.

Just installed jamcast. Started playing some tunes in Spotify. Went downstairs and my Soundbridge was displaying my jamcast username as an option to link to. I selected that and my spotify tunes started playing through my Soundbridge. How easy is that!!!!

I have just managed to get this working!

First of all I installed Jamcast, but had trouble configuring it, so I posted a thread on their forum and their techie Scott was brilliant with instant help. It then turned out I didn't have Stereo Mix available on my soundcard driver but Scott pointed me to http://www.notebookforums.com/thread199898.html and that thread gave detailed instructions on hacking my registry, which works a treat!

There's a massive latency though. Something like 30+ seconds which makes it a bit weird changing tracks/albums and waiting for it to happen.

Not looking a gift horse in the mouth though!

I have checked the delay on my setup and it's only about 5 seconds for me. And it's not really a problem if I'm listening in a different room.

Hi RokinRob

Once you have selected the Virtual Soundcard device you have to press Play (>) again on the remote.
Alternatively you may have a sound controller that does not work with Jamcast, see their website for supported devices. The Jamcast engineer is very helpful if you post a problem on that forum.

and follow my instructions on that page. I think this is still as good as it gets for Mac users streaming in this manner. Probably the only thing that's changed significantly since I wrote them is the way Mac OS handles ports (changes from 10.4 to 10.5). If you reach a stumbling block let me know as I was streaming from Spotify not so long ago without any issues.

Hello,

I just installed Jamcast and it works perfect with Spotify :D

I have one question, is it possible somehow to get the artist and track name to the Soundbridge display?

I have searched about this but could not find anything.
