It worked! 

I'm on Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon. The libraries libavcodec, livavutil, libavformat were not provided by apt-get, so step 1 was not complete, but it worked by doing the rest anyway. 

Thanks!

⚠ I personnally consider this hacky solution very dangerous. It breaks the package manager model and may lead to system errors and inconsistencies. In particular, the behavior is undefined whenever codec packages get updated. Spotify should provide a clean solution for this instead!

The kernel won't upgrade. Not certain whether it is spotify related or not. Does anyone have similar issues?

Easier solution. It works on Ubuntu 16.10 and 17.04 as well. Make sure you copy the entire lines: https://github.com/olejon/spotcommander/wiki/LocalFiles


And COME ON Spotify, 16.04 is almost a year old!
