My Question or Issue
I have been using Spotify client 126.96.36.1996.ge08ef575 with direct output to my DAC via ALSA (after stopping Pulseaudio) to avoid any unnecessary conversions.
After upgrading to .1.42.622.gbd112320 I get the following error in STDERROR:
ALSA lib pcm.c:8601:(snd_pcm_set_params) Sample format not available for PLAYBACK
No change in my ALSA or other audio setup. It does play via Pulseaudio.
Downgrading the Spotify client rectifies the issue.
Can anyone enlighten what has changed in this latest release? Both clients set to maximum quality.
