Laptop (Lenovo t460p)
My Question or Issue
I cannot play local songs. Error message I get is This song is not available.
"Real" error I get is following (and happens with all local mp3 songs)
[mp3 @ 0x7f8d452c8d10] max_analyze_duration 5000000 reached at 5015510 [mp3 @ 0x7f8d452c8d10] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate

Spotify is installed via package manager. Not as snap package.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There are libraries required for local playback that may be missing, as per these similar posts:
One solution is to add the libraries to your system from this github:
Hope this helps
