My Question or Issue

 

ok so I know tat spotify has this big issue with copyright where if a ton of stringest criteria isn't followed it only plays 29 seconds of a song. This is really brutal for many of us as spotify does not consider a song listened to until over 30 seconds of it are played - so all those plays don't count at all.

 

It used to be that if your site was https certified and you embedded a song or playlist onto a site or on your own site, it would play the whole song. Now it doesn't even do that anymore - so all songs and playlist on personal sites, on arvertising places like reddit, facebook etc all now no longer get any views or streams that count.

some examples:

same with that

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/Chronamut/

(edit: it doesn't work on either)

 

same wit that

 

these were all working literally a few weeks to months ago, so it's not the sites themselves - why does spotify keep making it more and more difficult for us to get streams?

 

I just want to embed a song or playlist and be able to hear the whole thing..
