Since april spotify modified their source of cover art, from the
https://open.spotify.com/image/<song ID> to a new url at
https://i.scdn.co/image/<song ID>, however the desktop program on Linux still provides the cover art url over
https://open.spotify.com/. Due to that, no cover art is visible on media controllers.
As is known, spotify has discontinued their dedicated dev team for Linux back in 2016 and any work to keep the desktop app working is mostly done on their free time. Last update the client had was on July 2019, no significant features added in the last few years.
I imagine KDE folks won’t mess with this since this is an error on spotify and trying to fix on their end it’s not the right procedure, so I started to think on workarounds.
I guess a more direct aproach would be to modify the mediacontroller plasmoid to change the wrong url to the correct one but I have no knowledge about programming, is there an easier/possible way to change the url so that
open.spotify.com redirects to
