Yes, I can see that one, Ledge.
I'm not a subscriber - I'm on the free version.
And I'm PC.

Right. Ledge: can you try again now?

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

Grimly, I get "playlist not found" on yours. Weird.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:37 (nine years ago) Permalink

Try again now, Mike ...

Oh, OK. That's fucking weird, and puts paid to my incredibly simplistic theory, which was: it works when the sharer has Spotify running, and not when they don't.

Hmm.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

Still get "playlist not found".

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

I've just changed the Pazz & Jop list to "collaborative". Does that make a difference?

Spotify removing good stuff? Oh well fuck spotify then.

Nope: I get "playlist not found" for that link too, Mike.

Curiouser and curiouser: having deleted my own shared playlist, if I click the link, it recreates the fucking thing! This is absolutely fucked-up.

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:42 (nine years ago) Permalink

nope. i thought about that but i managed to get the freakytrigger/popular 1950s playlist which ain't collaborative. xxp.

talk me down off the (ledge), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

OK. Another one. Can someone try this?

Well, it IS beta. Can everybody get the FT playlist?

Grimly: nope, not found.

mike t-diva, Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:45 (nine years ago) Permalink

ditto.

Can everybody get the FT playlist?

Nope. Hmmm! I wonder how this actually works (or, er, doesn't) at the Spotify end?

Special topics: Disco, The Common Market (grimly fiendish), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:47 (nine years ago) Permalink

Ledge: I just tried yours again, which worked before, and it now says "not found". Have you deleted it, or is this further evidence for the fact it's all a bit buggered?

A friend in Amsterdam picked this one up fine yesterday:

my test one is still there. there are a couple of questions about this on the support forums, unanswered; if we 'vote' for the questions they might get some attention.

no joy with amsterdam one. it's fucked, is my diagnosis.

talk me down off the (ledge), Saturday, 24 January 2009 18:52 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeh, that's barking: the only one I've ever got working was your test one, Ledge, but now that doesn't work either.

Had a further Google and there seems to be a lot of this about. There's also an entire site devoted to Spotify lists (go on, have a guess at the URL), none of which I can get to work. Aye, I'll have a look at the support forums.

Right. I've done my bit to raise awareness of this terrible scourge. I'm off to do something more useful instead :)

sonderangerbot, Sunday, 25 January 2009 02:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

I can open the playlists ok in IE7 but when I try to open them in Firefox I get 'Invalid option:spotify:user:.....', any ideas, google isn't my friend when it comes to this.

Billy Dods, Sunday, 25 January 2009 12:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

I find the most reliable method is to copy the links and paste them in the spotify search box and hit return.

This works perfectly for me now. Wonderful! Am too busy weeping (once again) at the eternal fucking shitness of Microsoft Excel to explore it much further, mind. Hurrah, though.

I added that ghost cauldron track : D

who put up the letta mbulu? was really feeling that earlier

cozwn, Sunday, 25 January 2009 17:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

Letta Mbulu was one of mine.

mike t-diva, Sunday, 25 January 2009 17:58 (nine years ago) Permalink

It's odd and a fucking pain how Spotify often doesn't specify that tracks are remixes in any way.

this is starting to piss me off too. on the pazz & jop playlist above for instance the gaslight anthem track is an acoustic version and pink's so what is some hi-nrg dance remix. don't think the compiler intended it that way. i keep coming across stuff in live versions (biz markie's just a friend) or sixties tracks that sound that they were rerecorded by one or more of their original members somewhere in the eighties (the bobby fuller four's i fought the law).

Joris Stereo, Sunday, 25 January 2009 21:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

How can you add to it?
