Hi everyone, i have the issue of: "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."

I already try to clean the cache but nothing change.

I waste 3 hours but I find the solution, I resolve by replacing the ffmpeg-compat-54 with ffmpeg-compat-57, and now it work.

if you don't have ffmpeg-compat-57 installed you need to install, i installed from the aur repository.

I hope that this is helpful for everyone.
