Spotify client on Debian issues

Regular

I have spent the last day trying to get Spotify to work properly in Debian Jessie. I have used the information on the Debian wiki which is the same as that on the Spotify site for installing in Linux:

 

https://www.spotify.com/uk/download/linux/

 

I have also tried both stable and testing versions as well, and both come to nothing: the client installs and then after a while it has to be started from the terminal and gives the following error repeatedly:

 

[0418/210029:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(343)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process. 

[0418/210036:ERROR:ffmpeg_demuxer.cc(1510)] OnReadFrameDone result=-541478725 IsMaxMemoryUsageReached=0

 

Is there any workaround or solution to this? Or is Spotify not working on the app for Linux?

Casual Listener

apt remove spotify-client; apt update && upgrade; apt install spotify-client

and try again?

 

I had no problems with spotify on jessie, but maybe I had a non-free repo that you don't have?

 

try spotify-client --show-console, maybe you locate the problem easier.

 

Is there a actual problem because of the error, or does the app work?
