@ Spotify video team:

- Please figure out how to improve video playback. My initial 5 minutes of Spotify experience totally sucked. I click on the Joe Rogan video and it takes 30 seconds before something starts playing. (on YT it's instant)

 

Right now I'm at the point where where "if it is playing, don't touch it"

I used to open you tube, click JRE and it would play without any issues. Why cant spotify do the same thing?

Is there a way to prevent the video from playing when listening on a desktop?

Ok, I see that there are these two "ideas" for video on podcasts, but no movement from Spotify. I would like to reiterate that the user interface for podcasts with video is practically intolerable. I just started a podcast that I wound up not liking, and there is no way to close the video and go back to the main browsing list (short of playing a track that has no video and basically starting over from scratch). I'm a longtime Spotify customer, and I've always thought the app worked great for mobile and desktop--well designed. I was excited that Joe Rogan was moving to Spotify, but the app has been bad enough that it practically makes me want to stop listening to JRE. Not what you guys paid $100 million for and and not up to the standards I've come to expect. Fix this and let us disable video. And just generally fix the podcast UI design. Please.

Great stuff. Now look how Spotify ignores everything you have typed and still marks it as solved. Enjoy the Spotify complaint process. Soylent Green is people!
