Discord: Spotify Pause Blocker

Spotify Pause Blocker

Disclaimer

I love both of you Discord and Spotify, but this new 30 seccond rule gets pretty annoying when my music gets turned off while just talking "to much." I mean talking kind of is the whole point of Discord...

Reason

Recently, Discord started automatically pausing Spotify when your mic has been active for 30 seconds while Spotify is playing (on any device) in order to comply with Spotify's ToS. While I this is a valid reason, it is annoying.

The Last Straw

After a while this got too annyoing, my music would just flat out stop while playing games on mic with friends, while using headphones.

Solutions

Easiest Solution

Use Better Discord and add discord-spotify-fix.plugin.js to your plugins folder.

Less Easiest Solution

Copy the contents of copyme.js into the developer tool's console of the Discord app. The only caveat being you'll have to do this everytime you open Discord.

// save the orignial open function
XMLHttpRequest.prototype.realOpen = XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open;
// create a new function to filter out certain urls
var myOpen = function(method, url, async, user, password) {
// redirects the /pause to /play (which will do nothing since Spotify is already playing)
if (url == "https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/pause") {
url = "https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/play";
}
this.realOpen (method, url, async, user, password);
}
// overwrite the original open with our modded version
XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = myOpen;
//META{"name":"SpotifyFixer"}*//
class SpotifyFixer {
getName() {
return "Spotify Pause Blocker";
}
getDescription() {
return "Keeps Discord from pausing your Spotify after 30 secconds of constant mic input.";
}
getVersion() {
return "0.0.1";
}
getAuthor() {
return "Noah Cardoza (MacHacker#7322)";
}
start() {
// save the orignial open function
XMLHttpRequest.prototype.realOpen = XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open;
// create a new function to filter out certain urls
var myOpen = function(method, url, async, user, password) {
// redirects the /pause to /play (which will do nothing since Spotify is already playing)
if (url == "https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/pause") {
url = "https://api.spotify.com/v1/me/player/play";
}
this.realOpen (method, url, async, user, password);
}
// overwrite the original open with our modded version
XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = myOpen;
}
stop() {
XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = XMLHttpRequest.prototype.realOpen;
}
}

just do it how i did it https://www.reddit.com/r/Spotifyhosts/comments/kdnk0u/spotify_1148625g1c87c7f7_patch/ggb0b7q?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

I don't think these do the same things... Not to mention that the solution you pointed to looks like it only works on windows at first glance. I've tried solutions like that, but Spotify made changes to their API where they served ADs from the same server they served music which messed up the hosts trick.

I found a way around it by using Spotify from a browser with AD Block and added a plugin which let me use my media keys.

But to recap, this script only stops Discord from pausing your Spotify when talking on voice for > 30 seconds without pause.

I will tell everything what you need to do.

  1. You will have to create a new text document
  2. Rename the text document to spotify.plugin.js
  3. Profit!

Why change it in the strange way? Well because betterdiscord now detects plugins if it has .plugin.js in the name.
Name at the start or spotify in another words you can change it to anything you want but you will have to end it with AnyName.plugin.js
In my case it's

Does your file has a icon like this one

It might also be the problem that you have .js at the end because some computer show you file without the extension (Type of file)
You could try removing .js at the end and if your file will remain the same then it's because of how it's named.
Keep me updated.

You can try searching on Google BetterDiscord plugin or download plugin called plugin repo for BetterDicord and try finding the same or similiar plugin called as this one.
I will show you after I get some time. If you need it of course.

I don't really use this plugin anymore but I bet there's still a workaround like @Conqube said. The nature of DIscord's app running a browser makes it quite easy to hijack.

Indeed, you could also find a plugin that allows you to join other people on spotify through discord. Of course you have to find it since I am not at home nor I have it.

If you gonna scroll down from the top you will find bunch of randow words and letters or so called code in the post where it was originally posted, so there's two version that you can use is copyme.js which allows you to execute without BetterDiscord installed but you need to do it every time you turn on the Discord. But it might be harder now after the new recent Discord update where you can't open inspect element. If you will go on any browser and press ctrl+shift+i or f12 you will be able to open it. Then below it you will find discord-spotify-fix.plugin.js whivh I think you can download if not copy it and paste it in a .txt file for example spotify-plugin.txt > spotify-plugin.js and put it in the spotify plugin folder.

There are many ways to do it so nice.

After checking the code within the JS file, I noticed that Discord pushes the pause request via the Spotify API, so my solution was to create a firewall rule that applies to Discord.exe only, that blocks api.spotify.com (IP 35.186.224.25)
NOTE: This will block all communication from Discord to the Spotify API.
