    librespot plugin does not run satisfactorily on CoreELEC 8.90.3 (Wetek Play 2).


    I wrote the issues also in a thread at CoreELEC, but because it seems unclear if the issue is CoreELEC, Leia or librespot specific, I want to inform you as well.


    The issue depends on the used audio system:


    1) ALSA


    * If librespot is active playing, the Kodi GUI is not working anymore

    * If I stop the playing and try to use Kodi again, it crashes

    * last lines of kodi_crash.log:

    It seems Kodi is not able to get back the ALSA sink.


    2) Kodi


    I can switch between the use of librespot and Kodi without crashes. But sometimes (maybe after librespot was restarted) the audio output is stuttering.

    Hello awiouy, great, what a fast response!


    I today recognized that librespot does not work anymore on my krypton LibreElec (Raybuntus variant, Wtek Play2). I assume this is the same issue and you provide a new version for LE8 as well?


    What is the new version number of the librespot addon, because I would have to fetch it via wget. I am currently using service.librespot-8.2.110.zip.
