Proxy stopped working after update

Spotify was all good and working behind corporate proxy until today but late afternoon a new update cames and after applying it, now it cannot stream through proxy anymore. Without proxy, it is all good and working(which is useless for me).

From chrome on this mac through proxy, it loads the page but doesn't stream the music.

 

But finally on same environment with linux (both app and chrome) works fine through same proxy meaning it is nothing about proxy (which is also useless for me)

 

Looking forward to a solution for mac app and fix a problem of broken proxy support.

Same issue here. I managed to get it work again by re installing an older version of the spotify client, but it keeps auto-updating, so that does not work for long...

Before there is a new working version, you can download an older version here.

It worked well for me.

True,

Every time you close Spotify, you can delete all files in this mapp (on a Windows client) %LocalAppData%\Spotify\Update.

Now you can start up Spotify without an uppgrade.

that's user friendly :-P I rather go for the webapp then...

On my mac, webapp also stopped working (actually I'm not sure if update has something to do with it or not. I wasn't using it before, but simply it is not working now)

 

My very "user friendly solution(!)" so far was to run spotify behind proxychains. Still I think we users need a proper solution.

Proxy support is still broken. While using the web app is a temporary fix, Spotify better fix this soon.
