One more aspect for using Spotify (or any other music streaming platform) instead of YouTube - streaming video for just listening to music is extreme waste of bandwidth. And bandwidth is a resource that we should not forget about:) There's a lot of it nowadays but it's still limited.

I 100% agree. I had to deal with the bandwidth issue for years. On that note you can use this awesome piece of tech for playing music from YouTube github.com/mps-youtube/mps-youtube

It fetches and plays the audio streams using youtube-dl. You can also toggle it to show video if you need.

That's a good point for sure - and something I probably don't think enough about when I'm sitting at home with enough bandwidth
