Hello good people...

I am trying to find advice on listening to Spotify (ad-free) on my MacBook Pro. On my Acer Laptop I can listen to Spotify and Blockify works a dream, it mutes the adverts then resumes with the music. But, on aforementioned MacBook I cannot get Smutefy to work properly. I have followed guidance found on the web, i.e. installing Growl, then Sound Flower, then Spotify, then Smutefy.

The problems I am experiencing are, Smutefy doesn't recognise adds automatically, then when I manually mute the ad and (ahem) add it to the blacklist Spotify is completely muted until I restart it.

I have tried running Spotify through Wine, which works a treat, BUT, I can't get Blockify to work via the same method, although it is just a small PC based application. Hence, running Spotify through Wine is not an option for me.

Any advice/experience greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards...

Well worth the subscription.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
