MacBook Air M1 2020
MacOS 14.1.1 (Problem started already on Ventura / before Update to Sonoma)
My Question or Issue
Since approximately one week the Spotify App on my M1 Mac is extremely unresponsive and slow, although all other Apps run normally at the same time.
I uninstalled an installed Spotify several times, deleted my cache and so on several times - no change.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'd like to solve...
Really, really weird root cause, but I found it with tcpdumping my Spotify client.
When launching Spotify on my MacBook it tries to contact another client running on an AmazonFireTV in my network on TCP port 8009, which repeatedly answers the connection attempts with TCP-Rejects an the MacBook client retries to connect infinitely.
When I disconnect the AmazonFireTV from the network, the MacBook Client of Spotify runs some TCP Retransmits as it does not yet know the FireTV is gone, but works overall normally again.
Seems to be an old airplay session or something.
This seems to be an issue of the MacOS Client only as other clients like my iPhone or Windows PC run normal.
@alekwo @Tomlager :
It must not necessarily be a FireTV, just think about probable other AirPlay or Spotify Clients in the same network.
Also a try would be to see if the client runs normal when not connected to your home LAN / WLAN.
