FAQ

Q: Can I get banned or punished by Discord for using this?
A: No. The RPC was made by Discord themselves and Spoticord has been recommended by Discord staff

Q: I don't see the progress bar, where's it gone?
A: Make sure you're using Discord Canary. Even still, Discord might remove this feature from time to time to update it since canary is a development version of Discord.

Q: Can I host this on an external server?
A: No, the Discord RPC api runs on your local Discord client, and unless you want to port forward a few things and create necessary firewall rules to do it, it's not worth it. You'd have to repeat that with the Spotify web helper api, too.

Q: I'm not experienced with this scope of programming, are there any tutorials?
A: Yes! I found a few on YouTube:

Q: I found an obscure error not mentioned in the troubleshooting section, what should I do?
A: First, check the closed (and open) issues on this repo, we might have answered it there already. If not, create a new one with the WHOLE error and when it occurred (during start, runtime, etc). Thank you!

Troubleshooting

It says the song is being updated but it isn't being displayed on my profile?

  • Go to Discord settings
  • Go to "Games"
  • Make sure "Display currently running game as a status message" is ticked

Invalid token function (or something similar)

  • Make sure your node is updated, you need at LEAST version 8.0.0!

stdout maxBuffer exceeded
or some XML/CSV parse error

  • This is due to an outdated library which tries to help with Windows support
  • Go to node_modules, go to wintools, go to lib
  • Open ps.js
  • On line 11, replace the whole line with:
    exec('wmic process list /format:csv', {maxBuffer: 2000*1024}, function (err, stdout, stderr) {
