While looking around i noticed there's alot of plug-ins for adding your current playing song to your stream for both Winamp and Foobar. But getting the same functionality out of Spotify seemed to be alot more of a hassle.
However, I wrote a nifty little application in AutoIt that will provide this single function at a minimal resource cost.
If you do not trust pre-compiled binaries please compile your own from the source. (You'll need to download AutoIt for that.)

To make sure the integrity of the archive has not been tampered with compare the md5 checksum of the archive with the hash above.
If there is the slightest mismatch in the checksum PM me ASAP and under no circumstances use the application.
1. Download the binaries above or compile your own from the source.
2. Extract the files "nowplaying.exe" and "spotify.txt" to a folder where you have write-access (e.g. c:\users\$user$\documents\nowplaying\)
3. Run nowplaying.exe
Xsplit user ViciousXUSMC has made a fantastic video tutorial of how to the add your textfile to the stream. I suggest you check out his thread here. The configurations relevant to us are covered at 3:00 to 3:50.
To exit the application just right-click the application in the system tray and select "Exit"
Q: My stream only shows || ||
A: The application cannot find the spotify window or there is no song playing, try restarting Spotify or restarting the track.
Q: My stream only shows the text DEFAULT
A: The application cannot write to spotify.txt, thus default value is shown. Make sure that "nowplaying.exe" and "spotify.txt" is in the same directory and that "spotify.txt" is write-accessible.
Q: My song info has a delayed update
A: To keep the resources from racing the application only fetches track information every 10 seconds. This combined with xsplit's 10 second refresh interval can in worst case cause a delay of upto 20 seconds before the text updates for your viewers.
If you happen to find any bugs or have any tips on how to improve performance even further please let me know!
