Problems on OSX 10.5.8

[ Edited ]

After it's finished and continuing to the next song, it still says I'm listening to the first song. And there's no fix when in the program doing whatever. I noticed this on the recent update for Spotify, along with that my Growl notifications are missing. I don't get them at all.

 

I thought we paid for Premium subscriptions to not have these annoying errors around. Please make it as it should be!

Re: Spotify shows only the first track I play

To everyone still experiencing problems try this:

Log out of your account, and then back in (logging out is not the same as restarting, so log out from the drop menu). This should take care of the artwork thing...and the none highlighted buttons.

If you have issues with 'white empty spaces, blocked out playlists, white friends bars' and such, do a manual resize from the right bottom corner. Just make the player smaller and than larger again...(no pun intended).

This, at this time , works for me. It's annoying and rediculous, but it fixes the issues I have. I'm on 10.5.8 like most of you.

 

Hope this helps and I sincerely hope the Spotify folks will improve there none-existent customer service. I foresee some serious financial problems ahead for them in the near future...

I just got a new update, but it didn't fix it. I was so ready for it to work properly again :/

Yup, happening for me too. Downloaded the latest update a few minutes ago. I've also noticed that when "minimizing" the cover art, the space where it usually sits just goes white, as well as the "pause" button never returning to a "play" button once paused. I'm not sure if this is because the update is a preview one or not, but it seems like a simple problem that's a bit annoying.

Re: Spotify shows only the first track I play

Same here. The pause/play button never returns to play after I pause something, the "large cover art", artist and track title stays stuck on the first thing I listen to. If I quit the app and reopen, the artwork stays stuck on whatever I last listened to insted of being a blank disc like it should be. Also, like others, If I turn "large cover art" off it goes to a white square.

 

Worked perfectly fine this morning, got the notification that about the update, updated... and now it's broken.

Re: Spotify shows only the first track I play

Just noticed that on top of those problems, the shuffle/repeat buttons get stuck after a while. They still toggle on and off, but there's no indication from the button which setting you're on. I really hope Spotify's working on a quick fix to this... I know how sometimes Mac programs are lower priority to update...

Re: Spotify shows only the first track I play

I have all of the same problems listed above upon the last update.  I emailed Spotify support so hoping they will release a fix soon.  It seems they released a beta upgrade because they should have caught all these bugs since they're so easy to QA and replicate.

Re: Spotify shows only the first track I play

Hi all, I removed Spotify from my Applications folder, downloaded again from the Spotify homepage and re-installed.  The reinstall has fixed all these little issues.  The issue must be with the auto-update.  Hope this helps for now.
