2 Desktop Devices
Windows 10 Pro
My Question or Issue
Today i decided to get pretty angry:
Since 1y or so my spotify on win10 Desktop Client startet to lag/stutter/clutter/clitch sometimes. I thought it was bc of my old usb DAW. From time to time it got worse and i tried different device drivers, tried several suggestions out of this community, checked every hint, but no! Even a windows reinstall didn't change a thing. That time i was on LAN, since 3 months i am on wifi, both connections were able to stream full hd movies without any problems.
I was about to give up and wait for an update, but then i started using spotify at work and i got the exactly SAME behaviour, on a different device.
As far as i could analyse, things go like this:
While playing music on soptify i do several things and when the cpu load gets high, the lags do also. Sometimes it just doesn't make a noice, sometimes it's like streching audio with a factor of 10. When i start a browser (no matter if chrome, firefoxy, opera) and open a website, the lags/stutters are extreme. It happens on downloaded playlists as well as with never heard / downloaded songs.
If i interrupt my internet connection, everything is fine.
Why is there no buffer log where we can check things like the nerd stats in youtube??
And btw: I couldn't write this message in a regular firefox tab. i had to shut down my adblocker and use a incognito tab, otherwise the page would refresh forever and take most of the cpu usage. Not very trustabel
