Edited: Thank you very much everyone for helping! Finally I managed to correct the error and the steps are those that DerpyNerd offered and highlighted as a solution.
I have a MacBook Pro, and for a week now I have a problem with the desktop app. It only plays about 7 seconds of the songs, and then it stops. I already tried installing and uninstalling, deleting the cache folder and so on, but nothing works.
Something also strange is that from any browser I can access the web platform: https://open.spotify.com/browse
I appreciate the help!
Device Macbook Pro
Operating System MacOS
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yup, it started happening to me too.
I took it to the extreme by doing all of the following:
- Uninstalled the app
- Deleted all preferences / caches using finder or terminal:
rm -rf ~/Library/**/*spotify*
- Reinstalled the app
- Set streaming quality to normal
- Disabled show low local files and removed all locations
- Moved local files storage location
This didn't work for me but it might work for you so give it a shot.
I forgot I had a few rules in my hosts file for... various... reasons 😕
- I edited my hosts file
# Location: /etc/hosts # Comment or remove all rules containing: #*.spotify.com.*
All my music is playing without interuptions now... I'll edit my post later if it's a false-positive 😛
