Error Closing app using local files

Hello everyone, I'm using spotify client in my ubuntu 16.04 and I got problems when I try to listen music by my local files, when I try this, the app closes automaticly.

 

I add the origin, and sometimes it closes the app too, someone have any idea to solve this problem?

Crash on local files for Ubuntu version later than 14.04 is unfortunately a known, but still not fixed problem.

 

You can workaround it by installing libavcodec54 and libavformat54 from Ubuntu 14.04 as described here:

Local files playback is still unstable with these older libraries (certain files can still make it crash), but at least it works better than what you experience now.
