Thread: Spotty silence

    Spotty silence

    I keep having to press 'backwards' on Spotify to restart the track or I just get minutes of silence using Spotify connect through the Spotty app. Also, at the end of a track, I have to manually shift Spotify to the next one, often. Is there a popular fix for these issues?

    If you can give some system details, it might help.

    Which version LMS
    Which computer OS it sits on
    Which Spotty version
    Which device is the player

    Looks like he already has the latest Touch firmware.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled Spotify. It is also not continuing to the next track when one finishes. I uninstalled the Spotty app and reinstalled it too and I have also tried the buffering option. None has resolved the issue.

    There has been a lot of noise around Spotty recently, caused by the fact
    that Spotify started rate limiting us. Please go to
    Settings/Advanced/Spotty and see how to get your own client ID.

    Thank you. I have followed all of that, on two browsers, and each is only showing 'Learn More' in the Cookie section of developer tools. For clarity, I am playing from Spotify using the connect feature to connect it to my SBT.
