@windy thanks a lot for sharing this link! I will definitely add this to the spotify-stable package.

Sadly this mirror has no gpg signature, those have to be still pulled via http. Since its a digital signature it will still be okay though.

It would be better if this package would also check the GPG signatures for more security of the users. AWhetter just ignored my suggestions :/

There is also a HTTPS version of the repository, I would prefer using this one.

ffmpeg0.10 is orphan now and have issues with libvpx. I have replaced it with ffmpeg-compat-54 and everything work fine.

I think it is reasonable to replace ffmpeg0.10 (optional) – Adds support for playback of local files


ffmpeg-compat-54 (optional) – Adds support for playback of local files

If you are experiencing problems with the client while using a tiling window manager check the arch wiki spotify article, section Deadlock GUI Thread.

Due to the libcurl related issue I downgraded spotify to spotify-client_1.0.64.407.g9bd02c2d-26_amd64.deb. Is it the last working spotify version?

Spotify is still broken on the new version. Controls freeze after a while with music still playing. Not fixed until I restart the system.

For those interested, Spotify has released a "snap" package [1] [2]

I'm getting these errors on spotify startup. I've installed libidn2 but it hasn't changed anything.
