Music does not play properly in Spotify Web Player with current ruleset enabled

Music does not play back on the Spotify web player if any rules are enabled. Disabling the rules or the entire extension fixes the problem and enables music playback.

Current guess is that the ruleset needs to be updated to accomodate the site.

The rule that seems to break it is Cloudfront. Disabling it works around this issue.

Hi Hugoh, if you look at Developer Tools -> Network, you should be able to see which cloudfront subdomains Spotify on Chrome OS is talking to. If you do that, I will try excluding those subdomains from the spotify ruleset.

Okay, I've tried to commit a fix in git.

If you feel like it, you could test it as follows:

git clone
cd https-everywhere
git checkout 3.0
./ today
to install the CRX, you will have to go through the stupid obscure ritual that Chrome forces you through (click on the crx, open chrome:extensions, drag and drop the little popup at the bottom of the screen into the extensions tab). If that doesn't work for you, feel free to prod this bug.

sorry, that should be

Also note that if you install a custom build of HTTPS Everywhere for chrome, it will be signed with a different key, so it will be possible to install it at the same time as the official release. You should therefore go to the extensions tab and disable or delete the official version while you're testing a custom build.

In any case this should be fixed in a new release shortly. If it isn't, please reopen.
