Spotify seeking to song position breaks audio playback (randomly)
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
Manjaro Linux (unstable branch), PipeWire 0.3.29 with pipewire-pulse. KDE 5.21.5
Description of Problem:
Audio/playback from Spotify (electron client) breaks sometimes/randomly when seeking to position of a song and also randomly comes back if seeking again (but most of the time it stays "silent"). When this happens the playback time from Spotify keeps running but no audio is played. If the audio is broken more seeking can restore the audio and make it hearable again. The quantity of seeking it needs to break and restore the audio is random and sometimes seeking does not do anything. Only Spotify is affected, Firefox audio playback (of a video) works all the time even when breaking and restoring Spotify audio by more seeking to a different song position.
Issue started with 0.3.29 and is 100% reproducible for me.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Play a song in Spotify (electron client)
- Randomly seek to different song positions
Spotify audio breaks and restores at random times.
You just seek to a different position in a song and audio keeps working.
