    thanks for that. i'll take a look in the settings for that.

    How this transfer happens is another question. It could be something
    about the players, or the apps you use to control them (USBAudioPlayer,
    Spotify, LMS...)
    Ah, got it! In order to stay out of the doghouse, i don't dare touch it while she is working!
    I'll drill down a little further and check all settings to attempt to find the 'leakage' point.

    From the Default web interface to LMS ... bottom right of the screen
    Settings/Advanced/Logging
    then scroll down .. they are ordered alphabetically.
    No need to restart LMS.

    Ok, as you seem to be able to reproduce this reliably: please enable
    debug logging for plugin.spotty, do your thing to reproduce this, then
    please send your full server.log.zip to
    https://www.dropbox.com/request/T3RctyzGgNg0oFDubq6a. I'd really like to
    understand what is going on here. You simply click the play symbol over
    the artwork of a recommended track? I don't know why that would add (or
    rather try to add) a playlist, rather than a single track...

    And then disable logging again, as it's creating a ton of output :-).
    Hi, I tried to reproduce the problem. Started a song from the recommendations, automatically played the next song, then I skipped to the next and Spotty got stuck. I uploaded the server.log.zip to your dropbox.

    So are others seeing the issue with Spotty stopping a few seconds into a song, pausing about 10 seconds, then carrying on (sometimes) or just outright stopping? Doesn't happen on 100% of songs, but most of them. Has started in the last week or two.

    I have checked, am not using British English in LMS, I have re-authorised Spotty (after deleting everything in the cache dir related to spotty). No other network issues/changes and we use Spotty here daily for the last few years without issues.

    (LMS running as a docker, updated just now, with latest everything. Clients are mainly Booms).

    Thank you very much! That should be very helpful! And don't forget to
    disable the verbose logging again.

    I believe the ":recommended" lookup failure has been a red hering all
    the time. Yes, it's something that should not happen. But it likely has
    nothing to do with what is stopping playback. Here's what I understand
    happened:

    - around 18:57 playback of Tori Amos' "A Sorta Fairytale" (5:28) started
    - around 19:03:00 Spotty requested the next track, as we approached the
    end of the previous track
    - around 19:03:11 Tanita Tikaram started "Valentine Heart" (4:06)
    - 19:04:43 Spotify told Spotty to play the next track (likely you
    hitting the "Next" button): "Got called from spotty helper for
    00:04:20:...: change"
    - 19:04:44 Spotty is told next should be REM's "Everybody hurts" (5:20)
    - 19:04:47 another "Next" event
    - 19:04:48 next track is Pink's "Dear Mr. President"
    - 19:04:48.5609 Spotify tells us to stop playback

    And during all this time there are some of those failures to lookup
    tracks for the :recommend playlist. And something else seems to be have
    one of your Spotify playlists queued up in Spotty/LMS mode? Bryan Ferry,
    Jason Mraz, A Fine Frenzy, Cranberries, Maroon 5... tracks are looked up
    regularly.

    Does this make sense?

    So whatever is causing the playback to stop, we're not really closer.
    But I don't think it's the ":recommended" appendix in the playlist URI.
    Would playback end, too, if you didn't hit "Next" but just let it play?
    Is it nearing the end of the recommendations in the Spotify app?

    Would you be able to modify one of the plugin's files?

    I tested again. Songs sometimes stop during playback (in the middle of the song) without any user interaction. When I press play again, the Spotify app shows that it's playing again, but Spotty doesn't do anything. When I then select another song, playback works again.
    If you tell me what to modify I can try...
