Tempo of (Spotify) songs too low


I have installed Pi MusicBox Mopidy on a RPI3. I have a Spotify account which I registered successfully. Things have been working correctly and now for some weeks I can not use it anylonger as all the songs play at a temp lower than expected. How can I solve this?


I recently noticed a similar issue. I found that if I queued a track from Mopidy Podcast and a track from Mopidy Spotify, the first track would play at the correct speed, but the second one would play at half or double speed, depending on if it was going from Podcast to Spotify or Spotify to Podcast.
If I wait until tracks from one extension finish playback before queuing tracks from the other, everything works fine.

@jjok, is that also on PiMusicbox ? This post seems to have been moved from the PiMusicbox forum for some reason.

I have reported it on the wrong thread. I have OSMC and installed mopidy on top of this.

No, just plain Mopidy.

OK, thanks guys, Plain Mopidy for both of you. @jjok, what platform.

Docker on a Raspberry Pi. This is my setup:

Both using the onboard soundcard?

Anything in the verbose log? Cpu usage look OK?

I’m not familiar with resin’s raspbian docker image but I know osmc use various rpi firmware versions. It does sound like something that’d be related to that. I’ll try the latest normal raspbian version out myself tonight.

I’m using Pimoroni’s PhatDAC.

I assumed it would be something to do with the different types of audio using different sample rates, and it not switching to the different rate when tracks are in the same playlist. Of course, I don’t know anything about it.

I’ll see if I can replicate it again, and have a look at the logs

@jjok what’s your mopidy deps there? Specifically, what version of Gstreamer-1.0 do you have ?

Hmm… I’m not sure this still an issue. I’ve tried to reproduce it a few times, but it seems to behave correctly.
I did rebuild my Docker image a few weeks back, so maybe whatever the problem was has gone away with the current versions I’m using.

I’m highly suspicious of a race condition when using Gstreamer v1.14. And that could explain the caps not getting set properly when switching between normal (playbin) and Spotify (appsrc). Could you find out what version you currently have that seems to be working?

That’s quite an old one (from Jessie era) that I would certainly expect to work. I’d be very surprised if resin/rpi-raspbian:latest was pulling in that so I am a little confused.
