Well given I've read that thread and done as instucted (reported an issue) that's a bit rubbish!

Being supported or not, this is a real issue for me for sure.

Because this happens whenever spotify tries to play any song it also found in my local collection, e.g. when listening to a rdio station.

Effectively that means regular and unpredictable crashes.

The only way to mitigate that that I found was renaming my ~/Music folder to something else so spotif doesn't pick up the local files.

Needless to say that's a bad workaround since it confuses the hell out of any other applications that expect my music to be at ~/Music

@black_puppydog go the Spotify options and remove ~/Music from "Local Files", this should ensure that Spotify no longer sees your local music.

 

But I agree, it's unfortunate that this bug is simply ignored.

Theres any solution to this besides of not playing local songs?

Spotify stop the reproduction when I unlock my cellphone.
