Spotify not playing

Postby ianhaynes » 05 Jan 2017, 17:47

Having signed up for a Spotify Premium account I'm unable to get anything playing.

My playlists are visible when I switch renderers and I can add a playlist to the Rune queue, which then lists the available tracks correctly, but nothing plays. Hitting the play button does nothing.

Looking at the Rune Settings the Spotify 'On' button/slider is greyed out, unlike the other switches that show in light blue when 'On'. Clicking 'Apply Settings' doesn't have any effect on this.

Are there any other settings needed?


PS: Going back to the player from 'Settings' I find the following error displayed:

Code: Select all
Warning: socket_write() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /srv/http/app/libs/runeaudio.php on line 343 Warning: socket_last_error() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /srv/http/app/libs/runeaudio.php on line 332 Warning: socket_close() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /srv/http/app/libs/runeaudio.php on line 333

In order to get rid of Spotify Music won't playing error, I prefer to using a tool for downloading all the music for offline listening like TuneFab Spotify Music Converter.

Hi ianhaynes,
Try clearing the player ID in the /dev UI and rebooting. If this doesn’t help try clearing the hardware ID via SSH using the following command and then reboot:
Code: Select all
redis-cli set hwplatformid ""
You will lose some of your settings (check the settings & MPD UI’s), but is should solve this error. If you need more help please post the output of the following commands:
Code: Select all
cat /proc/device-tree/model
uname -r
redis-cli get buildversion
redis-cli get hwplatform
redis-cli get hwplatformid
redis-cli get playerid
