    When I use spotify on the remote computer the sound starts lagging and the error the server gives is this “warning! timeout reached while waiting for pulseaudio response.” I tried it so far with ubuntu 14.04, and Debian 9 so far is it really easy to reproduce? is there any fix for this.

    I am using NoMachine 5.3.9. The client is rhel 7, the server is either debian 9, or ubuntu 14.04. It only happens on this application so far.

    Hello dbz2k,

    We reproduced lagging problems with Spotify application and we are sure that it’s not a NoMachine issue. We think also that warnings you mentioned are also unrelated.

    We noticed that the desktop Spotify on a few machines occasionally causes little lags during connection but the same problems occurs without using NoMachine.

    We advise you to try the web version of Spotify as it works without problems.

    We suggest you to contact with Spotify https://community.spotify.com/, because some Spotify users has similar problems with desktop application, while Web Player is fine.

    This sounds weird but, when I run pavucontrol and spotify together it stops lagging? I know this isn’t technically NoMmachine related, but you guys most be really good with working with pulseaudio. Could you in point in the right direction of what pavucontrol does to stop lagging? Thank you

    We didn’t notice the clear difference in cases with just installed pavucontrol on similar machines. Can you send some recording with your issue to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com?

    Sorry for late reply; I mean when you install pavucontrol, open the progam and keep it running while Spotify is running, you will notice the lag problem is fixed or at least better.
