Deezer Family Profiles

Postby Sciamano72 » Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:42 pm

Hello,
I have LMS running on an OrangePi PC single board computer.
I also have a Deezer Family account, and I would like to use a secondary profile (one of the 5 additional profiles provided by the Family contract) to stream Deezer headlessly on the board.
Is this possible with ickstream?
Thanks

Ok, I can answer myself: I have just tried this, but after logging into Deezer with the credentials of the "Deezer Family" master account, ickstream will simply use the master account's profile by default.
I think this should be an important item on the TO DO LIST, since this makes it impossible to use Deezer Family's "child profiles" in a Squeezebox.

Thanks for the feedback! We'll add it to the enhancement requests.

I just looked at the API again and I didnt see anything about how to handle the family plan.

A deezer developer mentioned it wasn't available yet... last April, and it still seem to be the case.

We'll ask Deezer about it..

Thanks for your reply.

I understand the problem although I'd like to point out that Mopidy has a plugin called "Mopidy-Deezer" that uses the profile number instead of the account credentials, and it works smoothly with my Deezer Family secondary profiles.
I have no idea how this is actually achieved, but since the project is open source and is hosted on github, I guess you could take a look at the source code to find out.
You can find the Mopidy-Deezer project here:

Hope this helps.
