My Question or Issue

 

For a long while, it was working fine, but then I got the dreaded "Can't play the current song" blue message, so I logged out and restarted my mac and tried to log back in but now I get the dreaded "A firewall may be blocking, error code auth:16"

 

 

Please help! It's not my filter since I can post on this site now.

Hey @Cloud1! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That doesn't look cool.

Have you tried reinstalling your app? If not here's a step by step tutorial.

That usually does the trick.

 

Let me know if that helps, thanks! ^^

 

Peace

Tried the Clean Reinstall but it hasn't changed a bit.

What do I do now, Nico? That didn't do anything at all.

I did it again, just to be sure. Nothing!

Does anyone know what the "auth" in auth:16 means?
