Spotify hangs after a while

I’m a Premium user of spotify and use the spotify plug-in to connect with Volumio. After a while the sound is cut off. It seems that it is still running, but the only solution I have is to restart volumio and spotify. This happens several times a day.

Anybody the same experience?

Is this Spotify or Spotify Connect?

I’m using spotify connect 2

Could you share some logs?

Either from the /dev page using the livelog feature or via ssh.

# Volumio logs
journalctl -f 
# vollibrespot logs
journalctl -f  -u volspotconnect2.service

Note you might need sudo before these commands depending on the version of Volumio your running

Is this what you want?

That is a start yes, but that doesn’t really show anything abnormal.
There are a few things that might need some investigation, but don’t see anything explicitly wrong.

Could you try logging in via SSH and running the commands posted above the next time you encounter this issue? That makes it easier to debug…
