About one week with non-working Spotify here too, behind a proxy. Web-player works though.


I heard that Google now has a nice offering in something called YouTube music, or something like that. I'll propably try that if this isn't fixed.

Re: Spotify working from behind proxy once again


This is starting to get ridiculous now. There were two new releases for the desktop client since the proxy issue was introduced, and it is still not working. Now I moved to the web player which is the "barely working" category, most features are missing. But on the top of that it keeps logging me out at least four times a day, right in the middle of the music. I couldn't find any issue tracker apart from this "Community", where we can only moan to each other, with no sign of any Spotify staff. I'm seriously considering terminating my Premium subscription now.
