Spotify Connect

Spotify seems to have new stuff for sending audio to remote speakers. They call i spotify connect. This is my reverse engineering effort.

There seems to be an initial query to mdns which asks for _spotify-connect._tcp.local.

_spotify-connect._tcp.local: type PTR, class IN, "QU" question

I tried creating a service file for avahi which answers and spotify seems to crash some times.

dig -t ptr _spotify-connect._tcp.local @ -p 5353

On a working system would be great.

More to come...
