Everytime I launch the Spotify app, eventually it will give me an error code 4, and nothing will be playable. I have a working internet connection (everything works on my browser). Only when I go to relaunch the app, will it get out of the offline mode. It never used to do this. Any ideas as to how to fix the issue? It does the same thing on the release version as well as the latest beta version.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've had this same issue on two different networks, but I was able to fix it. For me, Spotify wasn't resolving through the DNS, so switching from your ISP's to Google DNS or OpenDNS fixed the problem for me.
Preferred DNS server: 126.96.36.199
Alternate DNS server: 188.8.131.52
This worked for me 🙂
It is a pretty annoying fix though, so I kept searching and found a different solution:
Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Proxy
Change from "Auto Detect" to "HTTP". You don't need to fill out the Host/Port/Username/Password fields.
Click "Update Proxy".
This worked for me (I'm using a corporate computer on a corporate network), but others in the other forum didn't see any success...
General compatibility error with NOD32 anti-viruses. If you uninstall NOD32, you will have no issues at all. Solved my struggling of 3 months. shame, so easy yet annoying. (sadly its not enough if you add spotify to the exception list of nod32)
