Ok I installed the optional dependencies sudo pacman -S git python-pip gst-python pulseaudio alsa-utils pygtk python-dbus python-gobject python-docopt wmctrl

and I was able to get Blockify muting the spotify ads. Now when I pause spotify to view a youtube video, I now get no audio. The same with Facebook.

Just installed spotify and blockify, noticed blockify doesn't stop/mute the ads. Is there a fix for this?

@polyzen the readme is outdated. pygtk only provides GTK 2 support which is not used by blockify.

jtoljnar, python-gobject is a dep of gst-python, and the readme mentions pygtk as a dependency.

Interlude player broken for anyone else?

jtojnar commented on 2017-04-30 22:08

This actually depends on python-gobject, not pygtk.

Edit: reinstalling helped. Maybe python 3.6 update caused some modules to not transfer or something?

Getting this error lately. Can't remember what started to cause this.

Don't have that installed, here. ~~Can't recall having recent issues with Blockfiy.~~
Edit: Looks like I recalled incorrectly; have to do a similar workaround as the one below with Blockify.

Spotify-Adkiller, at least, requires toggling play/pause during/after ads (after the 2nd ad or so ad) to work properly, here.

I had commercials not being muted as well. I had to install lib32-gstreamer for blockify to work again.
I haven't really tested if that was the problem though.

i am listening adds since yesterday with the last updates of spotify and blockify
