Next version will use libavcodec53, so local files will work again.
(All previous versions use libavcodec52)

elvis_d try rm -r /home/daan/.cache/spotify
Try removing flashplugin-installer to discard is using flash 11
The solution I posted tries to force spotify to use flash 10

if you use 52 and 53, 53 will be prefered.
I followed this archived thread :
to use the 52 libraries with spotify, and playing local files works again :) (ubuntu 64bits 11.10)
If you're on 32bits and want to use this trick, the 32 bits libs can be found here :

Hi Hirs, thanks for your feedback. Both removing flashplugin-nonfree from my Debian testing system and deleting the cache as you suggested allows me to start spotify without it seg faulting within seconds. Either of the two works. I guess that is fine for now.
BTW, exiting spotify through the File menu results in a Segmentation Fault. I can only tell because I run spotify from a terminal (and because it sents a crash report on next start up.)

Does spotify actually require flash? It seems like an easy solution would be to disable plugin support. See"QWebSettings::\PluginsEnabled"
Also, it would be highly appreciated, if you could provide a tarball that contains the spotify binary and the libraries it uses. Then a wrapper script such as this could be used: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/share/spotify/libs/" /usr/share/spotify/spotify "$@
For example, I have the following libraries in /usr/share/spotify/libs/ extracted from various ubuntu packages
(libcrypto.so.0.9.8, libnspr4.so., libnss3.so, libnssutil3.so, libplc4.so, libpng12.s

Thank you, this seems to have corrected all the issues I had with the previous version that I was using crashing on AMD 64bit running Linux Mint

Thanks for putting efforts in us Linux-users! Finally I can get rid of Wine on my machine. Got 32-bit client working like a charm on Ubuntu 12.01 Beta 1. x64 crashes perhaps as of the Adobe Flash plugin.
