    If someone can provide me with a working APK from Android I can have a look to see if I can figure out at least what the URLS and parameters are they are sending there. Maybe the current app can be patched.

    Interestingly, (maybe) I'm running a beta version of the Spotify client on Mint. I think I installed it before the webOS problems were reported and the nature of the install may mean there have been no auto updates - I know on windows, the client would happily auto-update. I've had no problems with it. Perhaps it is a mobile only thing.

    Finding differences between the webOS apps and working examples to patch is probably the best approach, but we have a Linux device and a Linux client - of course, it's a desktop UI, but we already have a mobile UI in the original app.

    Disclaimer: I have no idea how easy or difficult it would be to 'Frankenstein' a desktop Linux program and webOS app UI.

    Anyhow, if anyone knows how to find what my setup is sending let me know and I can try to get data / logs.

    Update: It seems I have Version 0.9.4.183.g644e24e0 The copyright notice is 2013..? I installed it last year.

    I'll call it, for practical purposes, impossible.

    OK. I was assuming there was a bit of code that dealt with the streaming and searching, then there was the code to present it in the UI. Spotify streaming is very robust (I think I've had a windows machine crash and continue to play music!)

    But of course the only stuff that can be patched (because it can be read) is the javascript...

    I assume the Spotify client is closed -source. In fact, I think their API only allows stuff around searching, linking and maybe playlisting - Nothing about playing (though I could be wrong). No chance of a LuneTube-style player.

    Does webOS TV have a Spotify app?

    The code could be useful for reference, but I think it would be impractical to try to use it to b build a new backend, which requires using the hybrid plugin architecture on webOS.

    Yesterday I tried, if by coincidence, app could work again. I noticed the tracks of the "stared" playlist flickering and I could play one. This makes me believing that it could be a minor issue possible to fix for whoever know how to debug the app. Is there a log file somewhere?

    I managed to play a few songs once and had hopes that it would just fix itself. Never happened and I already changed my data plan since I don't have to account for spotify any more

    One more interesting experience. I switched to "low quality" for offline sync and went back to the stared list and played one of the tracks I have on my device (not streamed from Spotify). Then it became possible to play most of the spotify tracks of that list, and even simultaneously on my Pre and Touchpad. I guess it is sort of work arround to play tracks I did sync offline when service was available. Still I am convinced issue can be solved...
