My Question or Issue
Dear Spotify techies - please please please can you get Spotify Connect working with local music files. Apple do it with AirPlay, so why can't you? I really don't want to buy an iPhone as a way of fixing this - I like Android too much.
Why I want this:
As a DJ, I have a lot of local MP3 files that I've purchased from music download sites or ripped from CDs.
On my Windows desktop, I add these local files to Spotify, create playlists, sync them up with my Android phone, and happily listen to them using the Spotify app.
The problem comes when I want to use the app on my phone with my home hi-fi - I have a Marantz network streamer that has Spotify Connect.
The Spotify app will not play any local files via my Marantz network streamer. It only works with songs that are available in the Spotify Cloud.
Yes I could use Bluetooth but I don't want to. It's annoying. I wan to do this over the internet - it's more reliable.
If anyone has a workaround for this I'm all ears 🙂 Thanks.
