Issue using Widevine DRM (development license) in an Electron app

Casual Listener

Hi,


I started using https://github.com/castlabs/electron-releases/ recently to build an app that uses the Spotify Playback SDK. Supposedly this version of electron comes with a signed development license of Widevine which i've tested on a couple sites like https://shaka-player-demo.appspot.com/demo/ and works fine. 

 

However, when I try to get the playback SDK working with Spotify, only the first few seconds of the song plays before it stops due to a request to `

`https://api.spotify.com/v1/widevine-license/v1/audio/license?exp=1591569937&cp=&tok=xxx` failing. 

 

Does anyone know if Spotify requires a production Widevine license or should a development Widevine license still allow playback of content through the spotify SDK?

 

Thanks
