So the problem itself is pretty simple: Spotify will not play any local music files, radio, or any music at all. I can click on the song to play and it'll load the info in the bottom left, however the actual song timer/slider will sit at 00:00 and nothing seems to work as far as getting it to play.
Looking around it seems quite a few people are having this problem as well.
I've tried the usual disabling hardware accelerator and cross fading, neither worked.
I unistalled and did a fresh install, didn't work.
Any ideas or what information you need?

Same exact problem. It is not a volume issue at all....it simply does not PLAY. Slide the bar. Nothing. go from 0.00 to 0.002, nothing. It's like the "play" "button" is broken. MADDENING. Support of course, has not responded to me either. Could SOMEONE HELP???!!!!!
Most likely means that you don't have any older audio drivers to rollback to. You could try getting the latest drivers for your audio device.
My issue was same as many others: Spotify loads just fine, plays the radio or song just fine by indicating in the bottom play bar it is running, BUT no sound!
To fix/solve my Spotify no sound problem I did the following: I went to Spotify support and they said to do a uninstall then reinstall, which I did, and now I have SOUND AGAIN!
Since I have a Mac Book Air what I did was click out of spotify, quit spotify, re-opened the app and it worked!! I hope this will work for others.
