My question or issue:
I have a playlist that I had started since September 2016, and it has about 900 songs in it now. I tried playing songs that I've added into the playlist 1-2 years ago with my laptop and the songs couldn't be played. When I try playing those songs, the songs will only play for few seconds, and stop at the 5th or 6th second, and tell me 'Can't play the current song.' If I try replaying that song, it'll just stop at 0:00. I tried searching for that song through the Spotify app and playing it directly from the artist's album and it wouldn't work too. I also tried uninstalling the app and reinstall it again but it's still bad news. This happened to a lot of the songs in my playlist, not only the one I attached the URL to. Is there something wrong with my account, or is it just a bug cause my playlist is too big? I hope this problem can be solved as the songs means a lot to me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey Draniik! I found the way to solve the problem!
I'm not very sure about macbook but I solved the problem by deleting the application first, then go to my C Drive (C:) -> Windows -> System32 -> drivers -> etc, and finally the 'hosts' file. Open it with Notepad++ and look for any line with the word 'Spotify' and remove the entire line, save it and allow it to run in administrative mode. Then I restarted my laptop, redownload Spotify and it's all good and working again.
I don't own a macbook, but maybe you can try searching for a 'hosts' file in your laptop.
I had searched for you online and found out that macbook also has a 'hosts' file. This is the link in the picture attached below if you need help looking for the 'hosts' file: Click me
Let me know if this works!! :D
