I have downloaded the spotify app on my Ps3, and after it had downloaded i opened it, all i got was a black screen and a sort of loading dots in the bottom right corner. Then after a few seconds it closed itself. I have tried turning my Ps3 on and off and deleting and Downloading again. I didnt see any login screen or anything, just the black.
Spotify seems to fail to load if user has not set a [system name] for ps3 system in [system settings]. Mine ps3 had blank field over system name and Spotify app failed to load, there was only those 3 dots for a while before returning to XMB.
Spotify connect uses [system name] to differentiate between each system, so its quite obivous that Spotify wont load if that field is empty.
Spotify devs should add a test on load which displays an error if system name is not set.
Just to be clear, does anyone get the past three loading dots to the Spotify logo? My app does not crash, it hasnt crashed once from the day one, all it does after three dots it loads that darn logo and text 'Spotify'.
HI, It seems that here is more than one different broblem.
I think that when Spotify logo displays there should be quite a lot network activity going on. Do you have a smartphone with wifi hotspot function? If so, you could connect you ps3 to completely different network and provider using your wifi hotspot. If the problem persists even with different network, you could rule out the problem with your network.
I remember that when I changed [system name] for my system at first, Spotify failed to load and complained about PSN error and stopped to Spotify logo. I rebooted the system and tried again -> it worked.
But, could the broblem be with multiple ps3 clients under same PSN account..?
Does there flash some kind of PSN error at the corner of the screen during or before Spotify logo appears? And does your systems happen to share same PSN account?
It has complained psn error maybe once but not every time, so I don't think that is it. Yes, there is two ps3 systems under one account, but..this faulty ps3 is the one I tried to get to work at first. My secondary ps3 worked like a crarm from day 1, under same account.
