In rckclmbr/pyportify#25, someone has a playlist of type PLACEHOLDER, which is actually a documented playlist type, although I can't for the life of me figure out what it is.

You have it listed as a playlist type, but aren't handling it when loading

Any idea on how to resolve this?

According to the libspotify docs:


So I guess all we can do is to ignore it instead of crashing.
