[FreeBSD] Version for FreeBSD

Status: Case Closed

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/BSD-Version-needed/idi-p/241338

 

Removing the requirement for flash is a good start on the web player. Either connecting via my browser or using an application (I don't foresee this being difficult to compile for FreeBSD).  It's rather unfortunate to be paying for a service and not have it accessible on an open source product. :(.

I've looked into the reason for this, and it's simple: Spotify relies upon the Widevine DRM library, and that library isn't available on FreeBSD.  The word from the Widevine folks is:


FreeBSD is not a supported platform, we have no plans or demands from
content provider partners.  Please consider reaching out to your streaming
provider to request client support which will eventually get to us.

Can we have a FreeBSD Spotify version? My laptop computer's OS is FreeBSD.
