Spotify crashes when trying to play certain song

Spotify crashes when trying to play certain song

I am running spotify on Ubuntu 15.04 using the installation method given by equaint in this thread (I had the same problem as the person creating the thread):


Now when I am trying to play a certain song, spotify freezes and eventually crashes (the song is "Koop Island Blues" by Koop). I haven't tried any other of their songs. When playing other stuff it works perfectly.


This seems very weird to me so I thought I should report it.

Hey @errefmecul,


Can you strace Spotify and let me know the output?


strace spotify > $HOME/spotify-dump 2>&1

Execute the command below and try to crash Spotify.

Then you can attach the newly created file in your home directory here, so I can take a look!
