PiHole - Spotify Freezes Behind PiHole


#1

Expected Behaviour:

When Spotify reaches an ad it should play the ad

Actual Behaviour:

Certain ads seem to freeze up SPotify on Desktop and Android. I don’t mind whitelisting the ads but this behaviour makes the app unusable with PiHole enabled.

I understand this is not a failure of PiHole but one of SPotify trying to keep its ads up, I was just wondering if anybody else used the free-tier of SPotify and had encountered this issue and resolved it before I remove PiHole from my network.

The linked thread has most of the spotify ad sources in it start by whitelisting those OR you could check your qeury log and see whats being blocked when it freezes and whitelist those
