Another alternative would be to use an Android emulator and install Tidal on it, then just follow the steps from the posted link. If you are on Linux you can try anbox or android-x86

RE: Tidal Lossless/High Resolution errors
@jonas would you know which is the current working method? I tried https://github.com/lucaslg26/TidalAPI#obtaining-a-token-from-tidal-for-windows but as you can see it doesn't seem to be working. I also tried the Android "okhttp" method, but I cannot find that folder anywhere(com.aspiro.tidal/cache/okhttp).
Tidal Lossless/High Resolution errors
First thank you for the great work on developing this application.
I am running into a few issues when trying to play Tidal Lossless or High Resolution files.
For certain tracks I receive "Could not determine type of stream." and for others "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.".
I have installed all of the gstreamer plugins, I am also able to play local FLAC/WAV files without any issues.
In the logs I can see the following errors:
18:17:42.126 ERROR GstEngine:911 "Stream discovery for http://<TIDAL FLAC URL>== failed: Some plugins are missing for full discovery" 18:17:42.127 DEBUG AuddLyricsProvider:140 AudDLyrics: Got lyrics for "Radiohead" "Subterranean Homesick Alien" 18:17:42.139 ERROR GstEnginePipeline:901 ErrorMessageReceived ID: 5 Domain: 3834 Code: 12 Error: "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in." 18:17:42.139 ERROR GstEnginePipeline:902 ErrorMessageReceived ID: 5 Domain: 3834 Code: 12 Debug: "../gst-plugins-base/gst/playback/gsturidecodebin.c(1024): no_more_pads_full (): /GstPlayBin:playbin-20/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin4:\nno suitable plugins found:\n../gst-plugins-base/gst/playback/gstdecodebin2.c(4719): gst_decode_bin_expose (): /GstPlayBin:playbin-20/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin4/GstDecodeBin:decodebin7:\nno suitable plugins found:\nMissing decoder: text/x-matlab (text/x-matlab)\n" 18:17:42.142 ERROR GstEnginePipeline:901 ErrorMessageReceived ID: 5 Domain: 3833 Code: 1 Error: "Internal data stream error." 18:17:42.142 ERROR GstEnginePipeline:902 ErrorMessageReceived ID: 5 Domain: 3833 Code: 1 Debug: "../gstreamer/libs/gst/base/gstbasesrc.c(3127): gst_base_src_loop (): /GstPlayBin:playbin-20/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin4/GstSoupHTTPSrc:source:\nstreaming stopped, reason not-linked (-1)" 18:17:42.144 ERROR GstEngine:563 GStreamer error: 3834 12 "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this issue?
I am on Arch Linux, in Windows I can play using the Tidal app without any issues.
