I found that on all my devices (laptop, android or ipod) that spotify stops after the playback of certain local files . always on the same files ,
These Files have all one thing in common . the length info for that track seems sort of mixed up in any form.
The length shown in spotify didn't match the length in the mp3 tag AND/OR the actual length in the mp3 tag even didin't match the actual time length of the song . On some Songs I could fix it using MP3Diags . changing the length info in the mp3 file .
But still for some tracks, I couldn't . The Problem seems to have different issues. But the root of the problem seems to be the interpretation of the track length in Spotify .
But nevertheless ALL .... I mean ALLLLLL other Media Players ( MediaPlayer / VLC Player / itunes / on PC or mobile decive ) are cabable of playing these exact tracks with no problem at all !!!!!!!
In Crossfade Mode or not . Does'nt matter . I mean, these are my old itunes Tracks, that I had in my Playlists on my Ipod / Laptop / mobile Android device all the last years with no problems at all ) I find it a very poor performance for a 10 EUR / month service .
The purpose of a playlist is, that you have CONTINUOUSLY Music Playback !!!!!!!!!!! isn't it ????
