I confirm, installing ffmpeg-compat-57 fixed it. Thank you @ajigsawnhalo

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.

I tried to install today and got this error:

@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?
