I am getting continous and reproducable playback errors on one specific album ("Firestorm" (2004) from "Tvangeste"). Is this issue connected to my account in any way or is it a problem with the data stored on spotify?
I have this problem on two different windows pcs in different networks as well on my android device (offline AND streaming). The error occurs excatly and reproducably at the the same positions of the tracks. For example at minute 1:07-1:09 of the song "Birth of the Hero" (Tvangeste – Birth of the Hero). There is an obviously hearable error like from a scrath on a disc.
First of all, I would like to know if this is a general problem with the data or do just I have that error? If so, how can I fix it and why does it occur on those many different devices?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you give some details about your Spotify app version, device being used and the software version on the device?

My Spotify app on windows is version is 0.9.15.27.g87efe634.
The android device is a moto g (1st gen.) with android 5.0.2 running the spotify app in veriosn 18.104.22.1686.
I also disabled "nuplayer". This didn't resolved the problem. Not really astonishing, as I the faulty playback is also in the windows application at the very same position of the song.
This is probably the solution.
I reported the track error, but now - after more then three months - the error has not been corrected.
Maybe, the music is not popular enough to be worth to get fixed...
