    Today, after hours of headache, I managed to install devkitpro on my ubuntu box. I after coding a few simple things, I decided to start a big project: create a spotify client for 3DS that I will call Spotifi3d (like "Spotified"). I created a developer account and a new project, but now I am not sure how I will go about creating it. I hope to be able to make a client that can search and play songs. Any help or suggestions are welcome!

    You'll have to use Spotify's dev pages to create a whole new wrapper for it. Best of luck

    Good luck, this sounds like an ambitious project, but I'd love to see it get done, I'd definitely use it. If you are successful, maybe you could show your work to the folks at Spotify and land a job or something (that might be a bit unrealistic, but hey, you never know).

    Hmm... It appears that it is possible to fetch entire songs using the android api... you don't suppose that I can spoof an android client?

    You know what would be even better? If we could run spotify through rosalina.That way we can listen to music on the 3ds while running applications.

    thats actually a great idea, but i think the process power of the 3ds isnt enough to handle streaming.... maybe play from sd card would be better?

    This thread just screams "unrealistic or impossible ideas" to me, idk
    The 3DS' download speed is crap and not being able to do anything while listening to music is a turn-off.

    Good luck with this project though

    I doubt you could be able to "spoof" an Android client. Mainly because if you did, it would lag as hell. With the super low specs the 3DS has, I would doubt it would even run

    It was 2007 or 2008, there was a webapp that you could use with the Opera Browser, matching your IP and you can use it as a control for the PC Client.
    I even remember edit the layout of the play and stop buttons in html, but thats was all.
    There's even another hombrew where you could stream the audio from your soundcard, but obviously couldnt use the control and receive the audio at sametime.
    In those times not everybody has an smartphone so was great for me to lsiten music downstairs

    Your project sound really ambitious.
    A proper MP3/ACC Player could be better and easier, I miss change songs with double click R button on my old DS Lite using MoonShell without taking it out of my pocket.
    Or in New 3DS maybe you could listen your songs while play non extended memory games.

    A proper multimedia player on 3DS while running on background would be a great idea.

    OP's last connection was on march of this year.
    Wishin' that he's alright ('cause you know, pandemic) I doubt he's active in this project at the moment.

    If any efforts have been made on this, I could make a suggestion to look at the open-source Librespot project and the Sailfish app that resulted from it, Hutspot. Librespot is a client library to turn a device into a Connect device based on the near-defunct API from Spotify. Hutspot was a frontend app for Sailfish that connected to your Spotify account, and told Spotify to use Librespot as a Connect device, then routing it to the sound on the device. For a project like this, making Librespot and DSP1 cooperate on the 3DS could be its own dilemma, especially with the limited RAM, and that's before the frontend. But that's what efforts have been like as far as native apps for other platforms. I'm not allowed to link to the Github page right now, but Librespot does see active updates even now.
