I would love to see Spotify as a plugin for MediaMonkey. MediaMonkey is my favourite music player, because of its really complex library system. This is what I love about it.
I find Spotify and even Premium, being a very stripped and simple music player, which of course can be convenient mostly, but sometimes just lacks functionality. I could give a lot of examples, but lets leave it out. See, there is also some functions like, Related Artists, and Radio, which are just genious, and I would love those features to be accessible in MediaMonkey.
In a practical sense, I think that what has to be done, is that the Spotify-plugin should be downloaded from this page as an addon:
Spotify-team could either make it yourselves or give it out to developers to do it.
Another twist to it, could be that Spotify-team contacted MediaMonkey-team so that those two teams in cooperation could develop a new MediaMonkey-version with Spotify incorporated in it. That way, Spotify would gain an even bigger target audience!
That was the idea!

At the moment I am using a bluethooth connection with my mobile phone to stream music to the receiver. But as you can see if I go for a moment downstairs the connection breaks up. So my idea is to play the music via raspberry (openelec/helix) and control it with my mobile phone as it is possible with the windows PC. This would be moreover great because the raspberry is an opensorce Set-Top Box with a minimal energy consumption (<2W). In this way you can make every receiver cheap playing Spotify. Maybe you can also sell raspberrys with preinstalled Spotify and bring it this way in erveryones living room. So please create an addon!!
