Keep getting 'Can't play current track' message randomly when I am listening to music. Stops my playlists dead (as in does not skip to the next tune) and also someitmes tunes that dont work one minute work the next. Becoming very frustrating, don't understand why this is happening.
I am premium member.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I found a solution that worked for me! After reading through many of the suggestions here and elsewhere, this option finally did the trick:
The fix for me was to go to Edit > Preferences > Local Files and uncheck everything. Fixed it immediately! I understand this might not be a workable solution for those using the Spotify client to listen to other music... but I suppose it's something.
This was my problem too. I had downgraded to free from Premium subscription, but still had "High Quality Streaming" checked.
The "can't play" message popped up but didn't indicate why. Unchecking high quality option fixed it.
In Spotify desktop, I was using premium trial but when it went back to free version high quality streaming did not turn off. (only avalable to premium users)
If you're using a free account then make sure the high quality streaming is turned off in preferences
It worked for me.
It shoud be working now :)
I had the same issue "Can't play current track" Error message.
I tried the following
all without success. Many hours scanning through this community.
I did find my problem. It was the audio driver on my HP computer. It had a tab marked "enhancements" I disabled all of the enhancements and everythng was working again.
So if you have tried all of the above, and still have issues have a look at the settings on your computers audio driver.
There's a fair few reports of people seeing the error message "Can't play the current track".
This can be confusing because the message can pop up in a number of instances.
Here are the reasons for the message, and the troubleshooting that can be tried:
For all instances, the first thing to try is a reinstall. This often helps the error go away.
For 2 and 3, you can try removing all local file sources, then add them again.
To do this in-app:
For instance 5, try out this suggestion in your PC's settings.
I was having the same problem getting can't play current track, and songs were moving randomly. I followed your advice with Option 5 and it fixed the problem. Thanks!
