Spotify crashes after ~10 minutes of play (mac)

Can anyone explain (or provide a fix) as to why my spotify keeps crashing after I've been listening to it for around 10 minutes? I'm running it on a mac and have the most up to date versions of software and have tried deleting it and then reinstalling and none of this seems to make a difference. Reasonably annoying having to re open spotify every ten minutes, especially given I have the 'premium' versions.

Thanks

Does it give any sort of error log when it crashes?

I am having the same problem.  Any ideas?  No error log - just quits suddenly.

Try the steps here to manually update to the latest client and see if that helps at all?

I have experienced a similar issue, and I see a lot of similar issues posted dealing with Mac and possibly the new OS update.

 

I find errors each time mine crashes, all of which deal with malloc.

  • error for object 0x(some address): incorrect checksum for freed object - object was modified...
  • set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
  • Terminating process due to a potential for future heap corruption: errorno=035

I looked at the recent security updates and didn't see anything stick out that could cause this, although there is a mention of unicode conversion changes.

The staff are collecting information and tracking this issue on Mac OS X over on this topic so I would keep an eye there for updates.
