this afternoon we have been contacted by QOBUZ reporting they will temporarily disable QOBUZ access for Volumio until monday.
This is due to a particular search string causing disruption on their service. So they decided to disable Volumio access to avoid disruption on their service until monday.
We apologize for the inconvenience and we already put in place the fix they required, but there is nothing more we can do at the moment.
We will keep you posted.
After a 4 days long exchange with QOBUZ technical team there is finally a solution, although not the one we were hoping for.
They decided to revoke the API key and issue a new one, in order to allow only updated Volumio clients to access their service.
For our users it means that to access QOBUZ again, it is required to update to latest Volumio version. We are rebuilding all Volumio versions (for all officially supported hardwares), and the new version will be available tomorrow (24/09/2019).
We are sorry for those days without your favourite music, but it was not under our control and we worked as hard as possible to minimize any disruption. We will update as soon as the updates will be available.
QOBUZ is re-enabled on release 2.619, to use it again, please update to the latest version. Then (IMPORTANT) log-out and log-in again from QOBUZ.
