I have the same problem, it occurs randomly. I have had this problem before but it solved itself in the past. I have never had iTunes, I have installed Win10 recently but spotify has worked fine for two months.
Admins, why is there no clear solution for this? This is ludicrous for a service which people pay money for. And for a problem of this magnitude.
The best solution I think would be a built in troubleshooting feature in spotify.
Yep. After 3 years, I have just canceled my premium subscription. I'm sick of buggy software.. Android app has an issue where it runs slow whenever you start storing your music offline on the SD card and every couple of Windows desktop updates there is some kind of issue and my local files either stop syncing with all my devices ot just dissapear randomly.
Sorry guys, thought they'd link the comment that I responded too.. Guess that's a little too much to ask. Like having out streaming service run smoothly.. : P Go Edit - Preferences - and uncheck all Local Files (Itunes, D/Ls, WMP, and ML). Seems like the software pulling local creates lag. Hope that helps!
And I don't have any local files and am a premium user. I'd just like to be able to wake up and press play on my computer. I too am getting mad. Seems like everyone has a different problem with 3 potential solutions.
