[Web Player] Fix firewall issue: Connect through port 80

So I have had problems with the web player over multiple connections, all of them due to the ports used. If spotify web player had an option to stream music over port 80 like the app does, I woud be really happy. It's really hard to set up portforwarding on a computer where I can't install the desktop so port 80 would be a real help. Thanks! :)

Just open this link to use Spotify on port 80 : https://play.spotify.com/?http=1

This seems to have changed. I was able to use the Spotify client on our corporate network. But not anymore!

 

I notice that the Client is using port tcp4070 even though I've configured the client to use a proxy! I took a wireshark trace and noticed the client using the 4070 port) And I get the error 2 and error 7 code. 

 

It works fine if I use the client on my home network (where I am not blocking 4070)

 

The https://play.spotify.com/?http=1 works fine, so I will use that as alternative.

 

But the client should not use 4070 when I configure a proxy!!!!
