Often when I play spotify with WD TV, I like to update the playlist via my tablet as it’s so much easier than the WD TV interface.
This is particularly common when I host a party and people want to add music to the playlist.
However, sometimes a song is accidentally started on the tablet, causing WD TV to stop, and it posts the following message:
“Spotify has been paused because your account is being used somewhere else.”
This brings up 1 bug and 2 improvement suggestions:
When I press OK, it returns to playing about 50% of the time. Sometimes it takes a few clicks of “OK”. Sometimes it just won’t get rid of the dialogue. I can press OK 100 times and it goes for a flash and instantly returns. So I have to reboot. Then it is fine. I know the other gadget is not connected at that time, so it is solely a WD TV live fault.
A useful feature from Spotify would be the ability to lock in to one device so that all others are blocked; or at least an ‘are you sure’ button pops up before starting on a new device.
WD could enhance the WD android app to let me control the playlists from my tablet.
Ultimately it looks like this won’t matter to me as I’m getting a bluetooth -> audio adapter so that I can stream music directly from my tablet in to the TV. Maybe the quality will force me back to WD TV. But with feature 3 I’d stick with WD TV.
