I've been using Spotify for years on my mac laptop, even though today, and then for some reason today it got super wonky and I haven't been able to find a solution.
First -- it told me that it was offline, when I was clearly connected to the internet just fine, and in the same way I always have been.
Then, after thinking for a while, it seems to find the internet, logs me in, and appears to function normally, shows my playlists and lets me load browsing playlists from wherever, and shows album art -- but it will not play music. I tried clicking on random music and the same result -- I get the album art but no music.
All looks normal, right? Except when I hit play nothing happens.
I've tried clean resinstalls, deleting both caches, changing the DNS settings, even changing network routers completely, disabling and reenabling Hardware Acceleration, switching Proxy to HTTP, and everything else suggested in the forums, and I get nothing.
Even more frustrating, it works just fine on my phone connected to the same router.
Help!! It's my musical portal to the world!
**Update - now music will play, but album art won't load. What is going on here??
