Let's make a definitive guide to the subtle differences in Self Hosted Music Streaming.

Others: Ampache, Mopidy, Koel, Music Player Daemon (MPD), Lightweight Music Server (LMS), Serviio. I'm not saying these are bad, I just don't know what sets these apart from the "Generic Music Server"

“Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound files while being controlled by its network protocol.”
Music server that features a catalog and personal library

Your personal library in this use case is the equivalent of a playlist?? I would use something like MPD https://www.musicpd.org/ in your use case.
Sync music between Android and Desktop
1 project | reddit.com/r/fossdroid | 14 Aug 2021
This doesn't seem currently possible without programming this yourself. The only player I could find that has such a feature outside of Apple is XMPlay, which is Windows-only. The "easiest" workaround I can think of is to have MPD running on a server (on the cloud or on an always-on device at your home like a RPi) and use MALP on Android to play your music, though it would be streaming over the Internet rather than being stored on your phone.

I haven't used it much myself but I believe what you're describing is basically how mpd works. https://www.musicpd.org/ there's a background deamon that starts up at boot time that maintains your music library and playlists. Then you launch a client to trigger playback.
Audio from one PC to another (Arch -> Windows)

The Music Player Daemon has a client-server setup with at least one windows client from a quick glance. I use mpd for local playback, and it works well.
Perks of having a LinuxAudio setup!

Use MPD and the frontend of your choice for the audio server. Install Snapcast snapserver on the server and have MPD output the audio stream to it.
Using an LED Ring with Raveberry
5 projects | reddit.com/r/Raveberry | 28 Nov 2021
In the first video, you can see how the LEDs light up to the beat of the music in realtime. In order to produce this effect, multiple steps are necessary. First, mopidy (the music player) duplicates the audio output into a fake pulseaudio sink. cava then captures the audio from this sink and transforms it, splitting it into its frequencies. Raveberry maps these frequencies to colors from red to blue and lights up the LED ring accordingly. Since the transformation takes a short amount of time, the audio output is delayed by approximately that time to sync the light flashes with the beat. All in all, this allows for a pretty neat sound-reactive spectrum visualization on the LED ring.
Linux software for internet radio that uses MPD
1 project | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 30 Oct 2021
You can set up Mopidy to use various internet services, and act like an MPD server. Some mpd clients don't present all functionality of Mopidy so YMMV. I don't know how polybar handles MPD.

Link for the lazy. That looks awesome and exactly what OP was looking for. It also looks like what I didn't know I was looking for. Thanks!

If you mean that you'd like to be able to use Spotify via mpd, you'd have to do your research and integrate spotifyd with mpd, or use Mopidy and find a CLI client that does both.
Cli music streaming
If you want to stream audio from a service like Spotify or SoundCloud, I can recommend Mopidy as a backend with a commandline frontend like ncmpcpp.
This sounds great! Maybe Mopidy is even a better solution for this. Once configured to use Spotify or YouTube, you never have to login again on the Raspberry.. the user can then choose a Client, ranging from Android apps to Console clients to control playback, create playlists, etc.

Is Spotify safe to use? If No then what can I do?

Try Mopidy with Mopidy-Youtube extension. Works great for me. But a little bit advanced.
