The Spotify web app on a Google Chromebook skips pretty much every song. No local files on the machine.

I find this is normally down to available network bandwidth, does it work fine on another network? 

Other thing I have noticed on my Chromebook (one of the ARM ones) Spotify really does struggle sometimes when you have multiple tabs open!

I was having the same problem and after noticing my G35 headset functions weren't working I unplugged/replugged them to reset the drivers and sure enough that was the cause of it skipping. Every 10 seconds it was trying to refresh the driver and failing, causing the skipping for me. Hope this helps at least one other

I have Spotify on a Mac OSX Mountain Lion and a Windows 7 Home. Songs skip with a premium account, hardware acceleration allowed, and high quality off. Though it does skip less often when the high quality is off.

Do you get this happening with both streamed and local music?

Just for streamed music. Also, I wasn't multitasking, so RAM shouldn't be an issue since both of my machines have at least 4gb. Maybe I was streaming during high traffic times? I'll try streaming during different parts of the day to see if that smooths up the playback.

If you get this every day at the same time, it could be that your ISP is shaping bandwidth at peak times. They may also be throttling P2P connections (sadly this is getting pretty common) and spotify uses P2P for music streaming. If you suspect P2P throttling, this site may help.

I am happy for you that you believe that it its iTunes, however I am not a user for that software. I may be some type of mime issue with apply quicktime that I will look into. Thanks.

Since

Spotify doesnt seem to be in a hurry to help their customers

The solution to this for those of you who are using a Desktop or a Laptop is to abandon the self standing player and just use

the Web player for your enjoyment until or if they ever decide to either fix it or answer your questions which I doubt they will, so use the webplayer at this address.:

 

https://play.spotify.com/

 

 

This will bring everything up and get you back to listening

 

 

Oh and THANK YOU Spotify for your wondermus tech support staffing.... said no one ever.
