Spotify crashes when playing local files.

Installing ffmpeg-compat-57 rather than ffmpeg-compat-54 solved it for me.

I can't activate my input method to input Chinese/Japnese in Spotify. However, I can enable the input method in my DE.

Can confirm, Spotify crashes when attempting to play local files.

Currently, spotify crashes when trying to play local mp3 files. I already rebuilt ffmpeg-compat-54, did not fix the issue.

Spotify itself outputs:

[mp3 @ 0x7fe11529ae20] max_analyze_duration 5000000 reached at 5015510 microseconds
[mp3 @ 0x7fe115279540] Header missing

Analyzing the core dump does not reveal anything useful, as there are just countless threads, all polling or waiting for some event, except the following:

A suggestion/request for the /usr/bin/spotify launcher scripts: please use 'exec' when launching /usr/share/spotify/spotify so that there's not a lingering shell process running.

Even better, how about only replace the /usr/bin/spotify launcher script for i686 builds and leave the symlink in place for x86_64.

Updated PKGBUILD for spotify-client_1.0.94.262.g3d5c231c-9_amd64.deb:

I tried to install today and got this error:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

Looking in the spotify repository, available versions are: spotify-client_1.0.72.117.g6bd7cc73-35_i386.deb, spotify-client_1.0.80.480.g51b03ac3-13_amd64.deb and spotify-client_1.0.94.262.g3d5c231c-9_amd64.deb.

Please update version 1.0.92.x to 1.0.94.x.

@arquero You could be right, tbh I haven't used AWhetter's package. I used the stable as a base and manually changed the build to (but had to ignore the pgp key as it's only supposed for the old version).

I don't really want to create an AUR package (too much first setup stuff). Maybe AWhetter is willing to update, if I send the changed stuff?

I have noticed an error that Spotify connect does not work if two linux PCs have the same home directory. If you are also annoyed by this bug or just want to help spotify take more care of the linux bugs, please comment and rate the following post in the spotify forum:
