Hey Jerry, welcome to the Community.

 

It is a little unclear isn't it? I'll do my best to explain.

 

A Spotify URI is used by Spotify to start playing a particular song. And you can also use it here in the forum to bring up a link, as so: Serge Gainsbourg – Bonnie And Clyde

You can also put it into the Spotify search box to find the track, so it can be helpful if you're reporting content errors.

 

A Spotify HTTP link is a link like any other that can be shared with others to help them access the song, such as in an email.

It will bring up a new page with a play button on to launch the track, and prompt you to sign up if you don't have an account. You'll see that the link for the play link on that page is just the URI, as above.

Example: Sidney Torch – Barwick Green

 

To get either though just right-click a track and select the option you want. Then post it where you want it to go.

 

Feel free to play around with the various options in this thread if you'd like.

 

[Post-script: this FAQ does a slightly better job of explaining things if the above is confusing]

Thank you.. Is that the reason that I'm not getting sound out of my IPad? Other links give me sound but this one isn't, is there a connection??

I'm not getting any music out of my Ipad, is there  connection? The program works great on my PC. Other links like Pandora work fine.

Do you have the Spotify app installed on your iPad? (The iPhone version that is, we don't have a supported iPad app yet)

The links should just open up the app and start playing music.
