Scrobbling to Last.fm from behind a proxy

Gig Goer

I've noticed scrobbling stopped working for me from behind a proxy. When I play a song in the Mac desktop client and open the Web player https://open.spotify.com/ the web player doesn't indicate I'm playing from "another device" as it usually does. 

 

I've noticed a similar topic from 2014: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Linux/Scrobbling-to-Last-FM-does-not-work-behind-a-proxy/m-... but AFAIK the scrobbling mechanism has changed since then.

 

How to solve this?

I noticed the same behaviour using the windows desktop client.

Scrobbling does not work when going through VPN with proxy. When I switch of VPN then scrobbling works, it even sends the cached scrobbles. Back to VPN/Proxy no scrobbles

This really needs to be fixed.

I have the same problem and I wasn't able to find solution for this. I tried switching protocol for webproxy between http and https in Spotify config file, but without success...

I've pinged them about the problem a couple of times on Twitter. They always just say that they forwarded it to the dev team.

 

Judging from pervious experiences with issues like this, they are probably just ignoring it. At the very least, they were not able or willing to provide any information about it

🙋‍♂️Same problem here.
Spotify on Mac desktop stops scrobbling as soon as I switch the proxy setting to HTTP/HTTPS mode.
