Spotify stream naar uw hifi systeem

We gaan eens onderzoeken wat de mogelijkheden zijn om de Spotify stream naar de TV danwel HiFi installatie door te sturen.

De mogelijkheden:

  • Android phone naar TV (Sony, Samsung) via Allshare, Playto, AppleTV of PS3
  • Apple Iphone naar TV (Sony, Samsung) via Allshare (o.i.d.) of AppleTV
  • Alle phones naar HiFi installatie en/of TV
  • Stream via Raspberry PI en Mopidity


Mopidy is a free music server which can play music both from multiple sources, like your local hard drive, radio streams, and from Spotify and SoundCloud and even Google Play Music!

Mopidy is a server without any graphical user interface. It runs on the Linux or OS X computer with the speakers.
It also runs on a Raspberry PI, standalone or as part of a full Raspbian Jessie distribution

Penguin speakers

Mopidy keeps track of the music, your playlists, and the clients that command it.

Use your favorite client

You can use your favorite MPD client to search for music and manage the playlist. MPD clients are available for many platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android, and iOS.

There are also multiple web clients available that let you control Mopidy from your browser.
In other words, you can control the music from any computer or smartphone in your home.

Stream from Spotify

If you got a subscription for Spotify Premium, then Mopidy can stream music from Spotify's archive of 15 million tracks.
You'll never need to refill your collection with new music again.

Stream from SoundCloud

If you got a SoundCloud account and the Mopidy-SoundCloud extension, then Mopidy can search for and stream music from SoundCloud as well.

With Mopidy's extension support, new music sources can be easily added.

Running Ubuntu?

If you're running Ubuntu you can install Mopidy from APT in a matter of seconds. To install Mopidy from the Mopidy APT archive, you need to do the following:

  1. Add APT repository key
  2. Add APT repository
  3. Update package cache
  4. Install Mopidy

Luckily, that is only four commands which you can copy into the terminal:

wget -q -O - https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mopidy

Then, configure Mopidy.

How to stream Spotify wirelessly to your stereo:

  • Via Airport Expresse met behulp van het programma Airfoil (€ 100,=)
  • Via de Apple TV (2nd generation) via HDMI (helaas op weinig HiFi installaties beschikbaar) (€ 100,=)
  • Via een Bluetooth A2DP receiver gekoppeld aan de HiFi (prijsinfo) ( € 20,= tot € 300,=)
  • Via een FM zender, met een beperkt (3-5m) bereik. (beetje onhandig ) ( iets meer onhandig) (€ 20,=)
  • Via de PC, via een audio kabel (paard achter de wagen spannen) en Airfoil (€ 35,=)
  • Via de Iphone en/of Ipad (omslachtig)
  • Via de PS3 of XBox (omslachtig d.m.v. PS3 mediaserver waar ik zowieso de voorkeur aan Serviio media server zou geven)
  • Streamen m.b.v. XBMC. Link Is bedoeld voor de Raspberry PI, maar het XBMC deel is algemeen)
