Yay it's fixed, but as I said before, it wasn't just a Linux problem... But oh wait.. I posted links to reddit threads of people on different platforms having issues (to show it wasn't a linux issue, and try to mediate peoples concerns about it being a linux specific issue), but that post has apparently been removed..
Wow, I really didn't realize how overmoderated this forum is... Considering Linux isn't officially supported, they sure police this forum as though it is. Really not sure what the point of deleting those posts were, as it was legitimate valid information regarding a problem we were trying to diagnose, and since this is a support forum where we're supposed to help each other out (since spotify doesn't actually officially support us), I really don't understand the reason for removing that post. It showed a pattern of problems on multiple platforms, which I'm sure people would have found useful.
I'm glad the issue is resolved, but please stop treating us like **bleep**. Deleting our posts, and blowing us off when we're having problems is unwarranted. I don't think anything I've asked for or have done to try to help others here is deserving of this hostility.
EDIT: I double checked the community guidelines, still no clue why it was deleted.. But I do want to mention, again, that this wasn't a linux-specific issue. I thought that was important enough to post yesterday, but apparently the moderators disagreed.
Just happend to me now already a few times as well. I fargot how to fix the problem, maybe I did with reinstalling spotify, but I dont wanna download all songs again. But I can still contol the musik from my spotify app over the Pc.
I'm having the same issue but I'm using Windows 10. I've had the same issue on the Android app as well. It seems like a deeper problem with the Spotify player.
When this happens, Spotify just continuously skips through songs. In my case, it doesn't play any audio, just skips through tracks every fraction of a second, as if every song was just a split second of silence. It doesn't happen when using my laptop's built-in speakers but that's not a good workaround as I want to listen to music through my studio monitors.
I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, changing the default audio device for Spotify in Windows settings, and running as administrator, but nothing has solved the issue. Spotify developers really need to step up and fix this problem. It's been an ongoing issue for me for years.
