Hi, I understood my question was getting escalated at the time but nothing seems to have changed so I really have just given up on that issue but maybe you can reactivate it. Good luck.

I having 30-second playback issues in embed playlist. Anyone know how to get embed playlist to pay full songs, not 30 seconds only.

I also came across this problem very recently - everything was working fine and embeds were playing in full until around 1-2 weeks ago, since then our site only played the 30 second sample with link to 'Play On Spotify' (in Chrome, Win10).

 

I checked this on my mobile (Chrome) and the embeds there were working correctly - I then tried again in incognito mode back on my laptop and the issue was not present either.

 

It seems (for me at least) the issue was with the browser and Spotify - I have now managed to get it working again in my main browser by following these steps....

 

1. Load an embed url directly in your browser (not in iframe) - eg: https://open.spotify.com/embed/track/0LQ6iwyXHpYPhWaVc26cX2

(find this in an embed code - eg

<iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/track/0LQ6iwyXHpYPhWaVc26cX2" width="300" height="380" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>)

 

2. If you have the issue, you should only be able to play the sample - don't click Play on Spotify, instead click 'Log In' and this will log you into Spotify in your browser.

 

3. Now you should be able to see full length tracks in embeds again - I even logged back out via https://open.spotify.com/settings/account and the embeds continue to work correctly (although this may change and I will update here if so)

 

Hope this helps someone out!

I have the exact same issue, there seems to be some sort of update/change recently on spotify's side, because the player now only plays 30 seconds preview, even when i'm logged into spotify app en web player. Maybe it has something to do with the new GDPR?

 

The background of the player also looks a bit different now (colors depening on the artist cover art instead of the always dark background)

Sure when I do this now it works and the song plays in full on the browser but It's a separate window not on my blog. 

 

so I don't think this is really a workaround. embeds shouldn't play 30 sec only if you are logged in. 

 

check  it out on my blog here.

they should seriously communicate about this issue or whatever updates they are working on for the embed playlist. because they are gonna **bleep** off at lof the people who use the service and promote Spotify by curating these playlists for their blog.  if it is GDPR just say so at least...

I think this is actually an issue with older embed codes becuase I still run across older embeds (6mo-1yr old) that only let me play 30-sec, but later embed codes work fine. I think it has to do with the updated attribute in the HTML 

allow="encrypted-media"

All the ones I've tested with allow encrypted-media work for me, however, all the ones that haven't worked do not have that.

Hi. I'm experiencing the exact same problem, but I don't think it's a region issue.

 

The Spotify playlists on my site used to stream perfectly, but now they just play erxcerpts from each track with an overlay on top of the playlist saying "To play the full track, you'll need the Spotify app."

 

Is that a new Spotify policy, or is it a bug?

It's the same on all devices/computers. Regardless of whether I'm signed in or out of Spotift etc.

I think my issue is different as there are four albums called Real Australian Blues volume one, two, three, four and all the songs on the albums are only for 30 seconds irrespective of whether you download the album or listen to it online. It has been like that for a long time.
