My Question or Issue

When I click on "Replace image" in the "Edit Playlist Details" view, Spotify crashes, its window closes instantly.

(I can't do that in web browser version either because of another bug I posted about…)

Instead of creating a new topic I will add to this thread. I'm encountering the same issue as well:

Version

  • 1.1.42.622.gbd112320

Brief Description of Issue

  • Adding image to Spotify playlist results in Spotify app crashing

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open Spotify
  2. Select Playlist
  3. Select image (image should show a large pencil with the hovering text saying "Edit image")
  4. Spotify attempts to open native file explorer
  5. Spotify crashes (Segmentation fault)

I should also note that this also crashes when selecting the three dots, selecting "Edit Details" and then clicking on the playlist image.

 

Furthermore, I am unable to Edit Details on the browser client as well as the iOS app.

I just noticed having this exact some issue. It happens whenever the client tries to open the native file manager when trying to select an image (like a custom image for an playlist). I noticed that the client doesn't crash when I open the file manager in Options > Local Files > Add a Source. Somehow it only happens when I need to select an image.
