Protected buttons

This extension’s basic version has most of its buttons protected. You still get fully functional extension and can freely modify or delete any buttons or commands, attach your own triggers etc. You cannot open any nested commands (these contain 'backend' commands that would be easy to break by non experienced users), copy the commands or copy the buttons themselves. 

If you wish to be able to fully modify the extension (only recommended for very advanced users), you can purchase the premium version instead, which has all its buttons unlocked!
I do not provide documentation or troubleshooting for any unlocked buttons and it's up to you to figure out their functionality. 

Interested in custom modifications for this extension? I offer commissioned work to adapt and personalize my extensions to your unique needs. For more information, reach out to me on Discord (christinna).

Special thanks goes to: All my amazing Patrons!

absolutely LOVE your work and appreciate all the effort put into this. I have been trying to find a way to show lyrics of songs playing as well and curious if there may be a way to grab the lyrics from spotifys lyrics/kareoke feature? would love to be able to display them as they are happening.

Hi! I’ve looked into grabbing lyrics before (i.e. use the same service Spotify is using), but it was rather challenging, and all services were paid. The free versions were buggy, or they’d return only a part of the lyrics and force you to pay for full version. If that changes in the future, I’ll consider adding it though. Thank you for your support!

hopfully with time things will come around, so far ive been using a window capture with a series of color corrections to make whatever color spotify gives be green enough to be chroma keyed out and it works as a janky temporary work around for now :p the goal is to tie it to your spotify song request function so people can redeem surprise kareoke!

That’s a cool workaround! I’ve toyed with the idea of fetching the url from the Lyrics button and then showing it as overlay in OBS, but there were some other issues with it, plus it doesn’t have less known songs like Spotify does.

is there a way to only show 3 songs in obs?

and do i need a playlist for sr? seems to work only with user queue

thank you for this masterpiece

Already found the Answer of the first question.

You do not need a playlist for SR anymore. That was an older extension version. It now uses your queue :) Thank you for purchasing and enjoy!

Hi Christina! First of all, thanks a bunch for this extension. I would though would like to understand if I (or you) can solve a small issue with it. Specifically, I noticed that if I have it open, after some time (can't exactly tell you how much) it does create a new entry in my copy-paste function with a sh*tload of text (10k word) - seems like the whole JSON is being held in there. I love this extension and would like to make it better as this interferes obviously with my day-to-day, especially if I'm doing a livestream and then randomly I have something else than I expect to on my ctrl+v combo. Let me know if something could be done to change this! All the best!


Hey tzantzarel! You’re correct, thank you for reporting that and apologies for any confusion it caused :) https://christinak.itch.io/sammi-spotify/devlog/501804/clipboard-bug-fixed


Awesome! Thanks a lot <3 <3 <3 All the best!

You as well! :)

Hi there! How are you Christine? Excuse me but I tried in many ways that this extension works as it should and gives me what it proposes, but at no time did it work well and I couldn't even use it in any way, a pity! I contact here in order to make a refund for the same extension since it does not work and I would like them to return what I paid or to tell me at least where I should contact so that they make the refund, thank you very much!

Hi Yagax, Thanks for reaching out! Sorry to hear the extension doesn’t work.

First things first, have you followed the setup guide at https://sammi.solutions/extensions/audio/spotify#pills-setup ?

And could you give me a bit more detail about what doesn’t work exactly? You can open a new post in our Discord server at https://discord.gg/dXez8Zh , I’ll be happy to troubleshoot it for you.

If you wish to proceed with the refund, please contact Itch directly at https://itch.io/support, as there’s no way for me to do that. Thanks!

Experiencing an issue where a requested song will switch to the next song midway, but if I hit next it will resume exactly where it skipped.  Anyone else experience this?

Hi, please download the newest version of the extension (the latest uploaded.sef file) that uses Spotify Queue instead of Spotify Song Request Playlist. You will need to replace your deck fully, but it’s generally more reliable and easier to use.

Hi, I've just got the extension and whenever I Press Install OBS, I get this error message. Any help?

What kind OBS and OBSWS version are you using? Do you mind hopping on Discord server https://discord.gg/dXez8Zh and posting in #extensions channel so I can help you further? Thanks! Btw this looks like you’re not connected to OBS while attempting to install it.

Please help: After purchase, I received file spotify.sef, not a ZIP. What should I do with it? LB does't know to work with non LBE file.

Hi, You will need to update to SAMMI (LioranBoard 2 rebrand), LioranBoard 1 has been deprecated almost a year ago and is no longer supported. Please see our migration guide here: https://sammi.solutions/docs/getting-started/migrating

Deleted 1 year ago

Hey Tony, thank you for the feedback. I understand this extension is a little bit more complicated to set up. Unfortunately because of how Spotify works in the first place it is not possible to make it drag and drop as you suggest. The set up page covers all the steps necessary though, and it takes less than 5 minutes to authorize it and get it running. IF you don’t wish to have a Spotify scene in your OBS, you can delete it together with the blue OBS button in your LioranBoard. I noticed there’s no link to the setup page in the Extension description, I’m going to add it so other users can review it before purchasing. Feel free to refund it and buy something else!

I've found a bug. If there is anyone in Twitch chat the one who writes !sr and then type "Æ" encountered an error making one can not make more songs requests

There seems to be a bug with special characters in LioranBoard/Spotify API. It’s advisable to use a Spotify link instead of a search query then, as I don’t know if it can be even solved.

Fantastic update! addressed all my issues with playlist automated switching! thanks for taking my feedback!

Thank you! Constructive feedback is always welcome! :)

Hi Christina, I'm still using v1 but is there a way to disable !sr with a button click/mod command? 

Hey CelticMerlin, you can just use Block button command to completely disable the SR button.

So I wanted to change !sr to be available for followers. But I can't change this standard function? I actually could change it in LB1 version, but I can't find it in LB2. 


This option is not available in LB2 and was never available in LB1 either. You must manually check if the user is a follower. Cheers!

I think I found it. At the triggers it was flagged to be only used by mods. I just changed that and now it should also work for my regular followers. Have a nice weekend!


Unchecking ‘mod’ means it will work for all your viewers, not just followers. You too have a nice weekend!

ok so i switched the trigger to the queue button so the player would function as it used to in LB1, but now, no matter what song is requested, it adds this song: 
to the queue and wont display anything in the song request queue text in OBS.

you have done amazing work here, but i don't need this complicated functionality added to the song request through playlists. i really just want it to put the !sr in the queue and display the title like it used to.
im not sure what i could be doing wrong as i only changed the trigger as you suggested to @DenStiveGudDK

also it stopped confirming the !sr in chat as well.


Please see here, inside the queue button you need to edit the id variable (use Pull Data command and populate the ID with the viewer’s request) and it will work just the same as in the old LB :)

Yea i get what your saying, i'm just not sure how to populate the ID with the viewer’s request.

I wish there was better documentation on this particular issue, as i know i'm not the only one who would prefer the player to be more like it was in LB1 (not that you dont have enough on your plate with ext. updates for LB2, so im not complaining, just wishing). as the new playlist implementation messes up playback and forces me to constantly switch playlist or be forced to have random playback after the que ends.

(1 edit) (+1)

Actually, I made very extensive documentation for LioranBoard 1 and 2 regarding Twitch triggers and populating variables.

But, now that I think about it, the whole button for displaying the current song requests would have to be completely reworked too. I do not want to do it for a few reasons:

  1. Spotify doesn’t have an endpoint to retrieve your current queue. The extension would have to remember every track you ever added and write to a file constantly in case LioranBoard crashes. You would also have to always add tracks only through the extension itself.

  2. If you already have tracks in your queue prior to using the extension in LioranBoard, there’s virtually no way for me to tell how many tracks are in there or what track is next. This means that if your viewer requests a new track, it will be added to the queue, but there’s no way for me to tell when it’s actually going to be played as I can’t see the queue itself.

  3. You can’t decide to stop playing SR requests for a while and return to them later or maybe in your next stream. Once you clear the queue, all requests are gone.

The old extension was very hacky and buggy at times, I honestly didn’t like that. I also asked several frequent users on what they’d prefer and their answer was a playlist.

What I could do though is to automatically switch to the last playlist you listened to once the last track in your SR playlist finishes. And if someone requests a new song, it would automatically switch back to your SR playlist.

Cheers! Christina

i understand completely, thanks for taking the time to explain. your solution is not only an amazing fix, but i think its much better and very smart, yet somewhat simple. Cheers, id really look forward to this implementation when you can find the time!

and of course you are right there is extensive docs, i guess i actually was complaining that there wasn't more of a hand holding this is how you switch the buttons for the player, for that i apologies, its not necessary. i could have taken the time to review the LB2 documentation. thank you for all your amazing work.


I will try to implement it sometime this week - I can send you a testing version so you can let me know how it works for you :)

Hi - First off, Thank you so much for your awesome job with this plugin

Is it possible to make it work like it did in the previous version which just puts them in a queue?

Or an option where when a song gets put in queue it is automaticly play the playlist after the current playing song, and when a song has been played it deletes it from the playlist

Just so it works a little like it did in the previous version

Hey, There’s Queue button that will just do that - put the song in the queue! You can modify it to your needs and use it instead of the SR button.

Thanks for the quick reply

I think that when using !sr in the twitch chat I want it to be queued

Totally doable. Just move the trigger to the queue button instead!

Is this extension wokring on lioranboard 2? Because the guide in the readme file says so, but I can't find a lb2 file.

Did you got it to work?

Sorry for the confusion, I did not see your comment until now! Spotify for LioranBoard 2 is currently still in beta and available for free to my Patrons, but will be coming out later for everyone else. Cheers!

Hi...the spotify scene was not automatically added to OBS...is there a way to add it manually?

There isn’t a way to add it manually. Please update OBS, OBSWS and LB, as this extension is using a newer OBSWS command that was not included in the older versions!

Love your work here! I can recommend everyone to use this for their LorianBoard. 

The only thing is that I wished I could easily set it up so only Subscribers can use the !sr command. Or that it is mentioned in the manual how to do this. 

Also a !sr help command would be useful. I just created a command for this in my own bot. But I think it would be nice if it would have a standard command that explains viewers how to use the command.

But nice work, and I will keep my eyes on your future projects ;)

You can limit any of your Twitch chat triggers to subscribers/mods/vip/broadcasters only. That’s a basic LB functionality.

A lot users personalize the extension for their own needs, so I think having a !sr command might be a bit confusing. I’ll look into it when I release the updated version though. Thank you for your feedback!

Thank you for the reply! I will look in to it. Not very familiar yet with LB. So I'm very happy with the easy setup that you created. I can totally recommend others for buying and supporting your creation.
