My Question or Issue

I can't play all songs that I had played before a date that I can't remember....
If I search a new song I can always play it....
However with the same account on smartphone I can hear all the songs

 

I fixed the problem uninstalling Spotify using a program that can delete all its files remaining in my pc and downloading it again

My Question or Issue

Hey all, I've been trying to listen to the Warhammer Vermintide II original soundtrack by Jesper Kyd. All the songs are grayed out and I get an error message that says "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." Trouble is that I'm on a work computer and I don't want to get local files on there. Any help would be appreciated!

 

As a side note, this album also won't play on my iPhone X...

I have the same issue. The songs have stopped playing between 4-7 seconds the last weeks on my Mac, or they don't start playing at all. Spotify works fine on my iPhone. I've tried

* reinstall

* cleaning and changing location of cache file

* Changing playback quality

 

Macbook Pro, MacOS Mojave 10.14.4

Premium account (family)

Spotify app version: 1.1.5.153.gf614956d

Many people on every Windows OS are having this problem.

 

I'm on Windows 7 and having the same issue.

 

Spotify needs to get their act together.

 

Until then, I will not hand them any money.

The Spotify app stops playing any song after six seconds saying "Can't play the current song". I already reinstaled the app twice.

Folks,

This is driving me nuts, I cant seem to play any song on spotify, very occasionally it works, but for the most part i get th eblue bar at the top of the app telling me that 'spotify cant play this right now....'

Im not trying to listen to playlists created with local files, im trying to play spotify generated playlists, like 'Your daily mix'. As an example im unable to listen to taylor swifts new song because of it. I hope this gets resolved quickly otherwise im ditching spotify. Hope you can help!

Hey Guido,

 

I tried a fresh install of the desktop version of Spotify and created a new account.  With the new account, everything seems to work fine.  Like I mentioned before, this problem arose after I canceled my premium on my main account.  It seems something is wrong with my account then?  As the new account seems to work fine.

This happend to me recently as well. All of a sudden all songs stopped playing. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app several times and nothing worked. The web player and app on my phone still work fine. I randomly noticed that when I switch my IP adderess using a VPN the the desktop app will play songs normally. I have no idea how to resolve this at this point.
