I became a premium user last month and I'd like to use the local files feature.
I use ubuntu 15.04 and spotify ubuntu client 18.104.22.168.gf959d4ce. When I add new (and only) local file source (setting -> show songs from), the files (mp3) are diplayed in Local Files tab. The local files source is an absolute path to a directory containing mp3s and directories of mp3s.
However, anytime I try to play any local song, the client crashes without any error. For that reason I tried to run the client from the command line in order to figure out what's happening and I got this:
 13723 segmentation fault (core dumped) spotify
Could you help me determine what I am doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Crash on local files for Ubuntu version later than 14.04 is unfortunately a known, but still not fixed problem.
You can workaround it by installing libavcodec54 and libavformat54 from Ubuntu 14.04 as described here:
Local files playback is still unstable with these older libraries (certain files can still make it crash), but at least it works better than what you experience now.
