Tidal Asset is not ready for playback (401) (4005) for some tracks
I get this error when i try to play some tracks. for example the "Alan Parsons Eye 2 Eye Live in Madrid" album. Most tracks work without a problem. I have the problem both on the windows as well as on the ubuntu and raspbian os version. 4 weeks ago it worked without a problem. Did Tidal change something?

It usually occurs when the agreement between Tidal and the artist has expired, and they have not renewed it.
I don't think so. The web player is doing it without problems.
@zapf2000 I'm having the same issue, with a lot of different tracks, and I can play them on the browser without any problem.
By the way, I'm using Strawberry on Arch Linux.
error dissapeared for me after switching Stream URL method from streamurl to playbackinfopostpaywall in the tidal settings tab
@fruity Changing to playbackinfopostpaywall worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) after I installed gstreamer-plugins-bad e.g.
sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad
