Djay Pro for Mac doesn't load my playlists

After connecting Spotify to Djay Pro for Mac I can play music from spotify but Djay doesn’t load my playlists and get’s the following error:

My guess (!) is this is because of my username, which is the not so common character ‘»’.

I chose it because I found out Spotify supports richt characters, probably even emoji, which I thought was fun. However this breaks a lot of apps and even Spotify itself in many cases since they only support basic characters.

Maybe a solution might be to parse these weird usernames into the url format, which would be %c2%bb when making calls to the API.

Or use UTF-8 as Spotify say in their API documention…
