Same problem. I am just glad that I am not the only person experiencing this problem. I am going to give the "ffmpeg-compat-57" solution a try and I will report back here.

Since Im on opensuse i dont have access to ffmpeg-compat-57, is it a different name under opensuse? if not is there a repo i can use to install it?

I looked into what is contained in the ffmpeg-compat-57 package 

libavcodec.so=57, libavdevice.so=57, libavfilter.so=6, 
libavformat.so=57, libavresample.so=3, libavutil.so=55,
libpostproc.so=54, libswresample.so=2, libswscale.so=4

which I then looked into my YaST2 to see if i had them installed and with the correct versions (which i do) so i guess installing ffmpeg-compat-57 doesnt seem to work for me

No luck on my end. It seems that ffmpeg-compat-57 isn't available for Elementary OS (at least in the default repos). Oddly, I can launch the snap when I specify the following launch options on the command line:

 

/snap/bin/spotify --log-file=/tmp/spotify.log --show-console --trace-file=/tmp/spotify-trace.log

 

To assist in reproducing, the following is my OS/kernel info:

[BASH PROMPT]$ uname -a
Linux HOSTNAME_HERE 4.15.0-43-generic #46~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Dec 7 13:31:08 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

My OS is ElementaryOS v0.4.1 (Loki).

Did not work for me either, unfortunately. I can get spotify to run through a series of odd command line flags, but spotify flagged my message as "Spam" and automatically deleted it when I tried to post a message detailing how I got it running -.-

Sorry, but i'm using manjaro, so my solution is working for manjaro and arch linux based system. I downloaded the "ffmpeg-compat-57" from the aur repository.

I don't know if there is a solution for elementary/opensuse user.

I have the same problem. I'm a producer and usually put my demo songs into a couple of playlists. I can play all songs in all playlists on my PC but on my Android there's 2 songs i 2 playlists (that are greyed out but playable on the PC) that always crashes the app. Even when i just click to open the playlist the app crashes.

I have tried emptying cashe both in the app and in settings and I've tried re-installing it but it still crashes.
