My Question or Issue

I have been using the BarRaider Spotify plugin for a few months on my StreamDeck XL without any problems. However, since sometime in the last week or so, the plugin logs are showing sporadic 503 Service Unavailable errors when trying to refresh the authentication tokens. 


Due to the nature of how the plugin is implemented, 3 failures to refresh the authentication tokens result in the plugin deleting it's local copy of the client ID/secret, meaning that the plugin has to be reconfigured every time it receives a HTTP 503 error.


The logs are looking like this:

2022-11-30 12:18:55.2191|WARN|com.barraider.spotify|35|[35] SpotifyQuery returned with StatusCode: ServiceUnavailable Command: me/player Error: {

2022-11-30 12:20:21.4949|WARN|com.barraider.spotify|4|[4] RefreshTokens: RefreshFailed is true, not attempting to refresh


Other users have been reporting similar issues in the BarRaider discord chats, but for some people it just seems to work.


So, @spotify, what's wrong with your API? Please fix!
