I have the same issue with 1.0.15 and 1.0.16 running on Gentoo (4.0.5 kernel) , XFCE, no pulseaudio. Going back to 1.0.14 fixes the problem.

I'm also hit by that same problem on Gentoo, with version 1.0.16.104.g3b776c9e. Like others, I'm using Alsa only.

 

I made sure to deactivate all my sound cards (with modprobe.d blacklist keyword) except the one I'm actually using, so Spotify couldn't choose the wrong one. Even with only one soundcard, it doesn't change anything.

 

Spotify output doesn't tell anything interesting except that it's using Alsa, as expected.

 

Also, I remember that in the past we were able to choose the output channel in the settings, and that's not the case anymore; why?

Same here, gentoo, alsa, kernel 3.x - now 4.0.5, version 1.0.14 was latest working.

 

diffin spotify --show-console  shows nothing important.

I have the same issue. I have spotify-1.0.16.104 installed, I'm running Arch Linux with kernel 4.2.3, and no sound with ALSA. Using Pulse Audio works just fine, I'd like to know if since latest versions Pulse Audio has become a required dependency. Thanks

I have the same issue on Gentoo AMD64 with kernel 3.18.16 with no pulseaudio.

Spotify 1.0.15 and 1.0.16 have no sound, 1.0.14 works fine.

Based on ltrace outputs, it seems that spotify starts a new thread that actually plays the music, but it exits with the new version.

In Xubuntu 15.04 AMD64 (Kernel 4.23) with pulse audio - spotify testing works very well - with web and cache contents; what does not work is player of local mp3, wma itp. (which without any problem I can listen to using VLC player)...

Can you try version 1.0.17 that was just released and see if it works. Pulseaudio is not a required dependency. This is just a case of bad programming and testing.
