    Spotify Web Player

    Anyone know what URLs and ports the Spotify Web Player uses?

    I'm trying to get it to work behind the LGfL's filtering and firewall system (all I currently get is 'we are unable to stream tracks to you at this time' or a message to that effect when I try to play anything). I thought I'd ask before I bust out the packet-capture software.

    The main URLs the web player accesses are spotify.com, cloudfront.net and spotify.edgekey.net. All HTTPS (so port 443).



    Source: chrome://dns

    Thanks - I've unblocked those and it still doesn't work though. Anyone managed to get this working on the LGfL?

    I had a quick look through WireShark and the audio is being served through RTMP (port 1935 etc.).

    If you visit chrome://dns in Google Chrome it will list all of the URLs its internal DNS prefetcher accesses.
