Of course, Cornholio. How dare we question the app that was provided out of the kindness of the developers' hearts? What audacity, to expect the same quality service for our $10/mo that Windows users get!
I am having the same issue. I thought it was something to do with my drivers but it seems like multiple Linux users are seeing this same behavior as of today.
Most songs will play for a few seconds, there will be a jump in the track, and I'll get "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."
Then, for some reason, 1 out of 5 or 1 out of 10 songs or so will play just fine. It's unpredictable and frustrating to troubleshoot. I've fiddled with just about every setting and deleted my cache, changed cache location, uninstalled/reinstalled.
