Songs only able listning 30 seconds to

Annethe71

Hi,

 

I have a question, if anybody knows. 

I wonder if it is a content issue when there is songs on an artist that a user only can listen to, for 30 seconds.

Is it maybe decided by Artist/lable to only provide teaser-version of the songs, or is it an issue within Spotify?


Noticed several songs like this, on two of Lady Antebellums album.

For example:

Album Golden and the songs:

* Nothin' like the first time

* Better off now (that you're gone)

* It ain't pretty

* All for love (have played full version on Spotify beging fo 2015)

 

Album Own the night and the songs:

* Friday Night

* When you were mine

 

Anybody knows and can help me understand 🙂

 

Regards,

Annethe

Yes. Same thing for me. The albums I've embedded only play a 30second excerpt for each track.

I'm happy to inform that the embed for my blog seems to have started working. It plays full songs, not 30-second snippets. Make sure that you are logged in on both browser and desktop app. Haven't tested it on mobile but honest on mobile I hope people just listen to it inside the app.

 

Check them out and let me know if they work for you.

I didn't really do anything except to contact the support staff directly via email and send them a ton of videos on the issues. I also used examples from the Spotify blog to prove the embed works sometimes but other times it just doesn't. 

 

I thought I had an issue with the music not playing for a while but then I realized that it was just my browser tab muted. 

 

Best of luck on this everyone

I've checked all of the above and sadly still only playing 30 second excerpts. I'm logged in on bwoser and app. Also does is on phone and iPad.

 

I'll contact support.

Use the vid yard chrome extension to communicate with them. That way they can clearly watch the issue live. Also, try to find a playlist online that is working for you. I recommend checking the Spotify blog to find an embed they have done themselves, that way they can't give you any**bleep**. 

 

The thing is after multiple interactions via email with Spotify. They basically shut me down and said they wouldn't know when the issue would be fixed, but I should go ahead and post about it here.  So that's what I did - I don't know what fixed the issue on my end. But I made sure to update my Spotify and made sure to log in to it on the browser and to connect my facebook. 

 

Then I sent my link around to people to test it for me. And most said its working if they have Spotify. 

 

Here is the vid yard thing im talking about

Hello,

I had the same issue and I had given up. But now I noticed a change. I just changed my site from not secure (http) to secure (https) and now the whole song plays on spotify. Maybe that was the issue?

Hey I've been having an issue with the songs on my site only playing for 30 seconds and I actually sent Spotify support your blog as an example of how the songs should be playing. What was the ultimate resolution to your issue when you reached out to Spotify? The support rep I initially reached out to didn't know how to solve the issue and is reffering me to the Spotify developers Github community board which seems like a black hole. Thanks!

you nailed it for me, thanks for the help!

If it is any help, we finally fixed our issue with a little help from this thread (at least fixed (again) for now!).

 

First we added allow="encrypted-media" to the iframe attributes - this didn't work on its own, we then also changed our embed url from https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=xxxxx  to...

Working URL: https://open.spotify.com/embed?uri=xxxxx

 

We must have used an old version of the embed which just plays the 30s sample when embedded (it is still strange these links work ok when opened in a new tab but not in iframe).

 

Hope this helps someone

Hello everyone !

 

It seems the problem is still there for me when using the direct spotify link (not the embedded one).

 

On phpBB forums, indeed, when using the most popular media extension, you can only integrate the little spotify window by using the direct link, for instance this one:

 

https://open.spotify.com/track/5MkQZgtPcAc6HGlu0HsKNS?si=cd9fe0aec2514d45

 

An example of the result here.

 

It spotify is on/open on my computer, it will play the full track.

But if spotify is not , it will only play 30s of it.

 

Any solution to this?

Hello,

 

The problem is still there for me when I use the direct link (indeed, in phpBB forum, the embedded link is not allowed). For instance :

 

https://open.spotify.com/track/5MkQZgtPcAc6HGlu0HsKNS?si=6f37281516fc419a

 

On phpBB forums (with the most used media extension), it creates the spotify window, but if spotify is not open on my computer, it only allows a 30s excerpt.

 

Any idea on how to change that? Something to add to the direct link maybe?
