  1. Hej

    Thanks for a good software. But I wonder how I get Servify to remember my settings (username, password, port, bitrate), so I don’t have to fill it in everytime I start it. Also I would like to have Servify upstarted with Windows (I guess I can manage that myself of course, but it would be a nice feature in coming updates). Finally, an installer would be nice, but I guess you will not do that since they will be different for every OS 🙂
    Anyway, thanks once again.

  2. Hi Theodor,
    There’s unfortunately no “remember” option in servify yet. I do have plans of adding the option of specifying a config file (or that one is written after first startup…). Exactly as it was in the Java version of Servify. I just haven’t gotten around to fixing it in C# yet, but I certainly will! 🙂
    For upstart with windows, I’d recommend creating a .bat file with the servify startup and adding it to autostart/startup.
    At some point Servify will be split up into 3 different distributions one for each OS (win, linux, osx), unfortunately it’s boring work 😉

  3. That’s what I do, I have a .bat with the full parameters in autostart (for anyone who doesn’t know how to do this in win – open notepad and input “servify path\servify.exe usr psw port bitrate” then save the file as file_name.bat and include it in your autostart folder. E.g. c:\servify\servify.exe user password 1337 320) – means servify is launched on start up and you won’t have to input user details each time. Even if you don’t want it to autostart, you can use the .bat as a shortcut or “config file” of sorts.

    Cudos to Johannes for a great piece of software and all the effort you’re putting into it. 🙂

  4. Great software! 🙂 Keep up the great work of servify, respot, and jrespot 🙂

  5. Johannes and wb, thanks for the instruction regarding .bat file.

  6. Thanks! And will do! 🙂

  7. Hi, great job!

    Questions to WB:

    -Shall the name be “file_name” or can i rename it?
    -How do I put the .bat file in autostart?


    //Not so good at computers

  8. AE: the filename can be anything as long as it ends with “.bat” (ie: “servify.bat”). I think you can simple drag&drop the file to autostart folder in the start menu, or create a “shortcut”.

  9. hi have been trying to get servify running on ubuntu and suse machines and i cant seem to get it running(the java version worked).

    Logging on to Spotify servers…
    Exception caught in ServifyServer.Login(), Exception message: System.DllNotFoundException: libspotify
    at (wrapper managed-to-native) Spotify.libspotify:sp_session_init (Spotify.libspotify/sp_session_config&,intptr&)
    at Spotify.Session..ctor (System.Byte[] applicationKey, System.String cacheLocation, System.String settingsLocation, System.String userAgent) [0x00000]
    at Spotify.Session.CreateInstance (System.Byte[] applicationKey, System.String cacheLocation, System.String settingsLocation, System.String userAgent) [0x00000]
    at Servify.ServifyServer.Login () [0x00000]

    my question does this have anything to do with my password having !! characters in it?

  10. Shouldnt be. Make sure “libspotify.so” is in the current directory or that you put the file in /usr/lib

  11. Awesome software, only thing missing (and is missing from the official client as well) is the ability to select the output device in Servify.

    I use a external usb dac (connected to a stereo amp) for my music and a toslink connection to my 5.1 receiver.
    Right now I have to switch the default output device in windows when I use Servify and when I want to play movies.
