I noticed this post:
http://eric.persson.tm/?id=public:throttling_spotify_bandwidth

But I've done what it says and it does not work, weird really... but is there any other way to throttle the upload as mine has done a gig upload in three nights EEP!

This is the shortcut I tried:env WINEPREFIX="/home/eric/.wine" trickle -d 150 -u 15 wine "C:\Program Files\Spotify\spotify.exe"

Any ideas? (Software wise not router mods etc)

I hope you changed the shortcut to match the settings on your computer??

i.e. I am sure that the folder ".wine" is not stored in the "/home/eric" folder as your name is probably not eric!

You need to alter the shortcut to match the settings on your computer. I am also searching for a method of throttling Spotify as it is killing my bandwidth and hence found eric's post and then yours.

I need to give this a try, however I am using OS X.

Thanks

I struggled for ages, getting Spotify to work on Ubuntu, it breaking, re-installing, etc. -until I discovered We7.com which is basically like Spotify but web-based, works like a charm, and has less annoying ads.

You're welcome :-)
