As far as I know, this is an issue with the underlying rendering engine Spotify uses (which is part of the chromium project) rather than directly being a Spotify issue.

The exact same problem occures with the Adobe Creative Cloud application. The one that allows you to install and remove the CC software. I added the same command line attributes to the path and now it works fine. I wonder if the problem only presents itself with nvidia gpus? I have the GTX 275 with latest dirvers.

On my system it appears to be caused by the hybrid intel-nvidia graphics driver.

Hi,

 

I also have the black screen problem. Solved it by adding "--disable-accelerated-layers" in the target settings of the icon.

 

Still an issue though, obviously, since it took me a few hours to find the solutions.

 

I'm running Spotify v 0.9.13.24.g5dbb3103

Win 7 Pro 64 (6.1.7601)

Hp EliteBook 850 G1

i7-4600U

Intel HD graphics 4400 v 10.18.10.3540

 

So, updating everything on my computer did not help, only by disabling accelerated layers it works fine.

 

Regards Henrik

They fixed it?! I just updated Spotify to the latest version, and it doesn't crash anymore. Running it now without any additional command line options and it works fine.

 

It really took a while, but nice to see that the message got through.

Hi,

 

I also updated my Spotify today, but I still have a black screen and need to disable accelerated layers to make it work. :-(

Looks like my hybrid cards were causing the same problem too, very annoying as it would stop and start but only started happening recently. Graphic drivers up to date as well..

 

Anyway, thanks for the fix!

Thanks so much this worked. Although I had to disable a lot of them. 


--disable-accelerated-video-decode
--disable-accelerated-plugins
--disable-accelerated-overflow-scroll
--disable-accelerated-layers
--disable-accelerated-fixed-root-background

 

These five ones, because only with the "layers" and "root background" wouldn't do the trick.
