Ubuntu 14.04 running firefox & chrome browsers
Issue: Playing radio through web-based spotify player stops (or repeats) after 1 song
When clicking any of the 3 radio's on the last.fm landing page (Your Library, Your Mix, Your recommendations) and having the web-based spotify client open, the last.fm site can properly start a song in the web-based spotify player.
However, on chrome, it keeps looping the same song until I skip to the next track, on Firefox, it stops after one track.
Using the Spotify application for linux seems not to work, the browser can start the application, but (I'm guessing) can't communicate with the application, whatever startup parameters are being passed probably aren't supported (yet?) on linux
I would love to get my last.fm radios back, sofar no streaming service has come close to their ability to recommend music and if I could get that back through spotify, that would be properly awesome!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, I managed to fix this.
You have to set a DNSMasq like this:
And it's fixed. Last.fm will work with the Spotify desktop app for macOS, and unix too I believe so. Last.fm will be able to track the play progress, thus it'll know when the song has finished and it will finally play the next one.
Spotify should have a look on why the installation on macOS and unix is missing this configuration.
