Current Spotify releases should work well with newer ffmpeg, like ffmpeg4.4. I believe there is no need to use ffmpeg-compat-57 as an optdepend. Please kindly check this if you have the chance.

@jfx Hey, I just made a spotify-edge package whose purpose is to use the most up-to-date Spotify version, which is only available as a Snap currently. Didn't notice your package. Are you going to always be using the edge version and keeping it up to date (i.e. should I delete mine) or does it make sense to keep it around?

@lenhuppe Thanks for the fix, @jfx can you incorporate that in the package so users don't need to apply it after installing

Fix the icon issue post install:

sudo sed -i "s|Icon=/usr/share/spotify/icons/spotify-linux-128.png|Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/spotify-client.png|" /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop

Should include a provides in your pkgbuild. If you have a different spotify installed, this will fail

Heavily based off but using the version from the snapstore as I noticed it was more up to date. First AUR package so let me know any feedback. Thank you
