Black Screen for Spotify Win 10 App

Black Screen for Spotify Win 10 App

Plan

Device

PC

Operating System

Windows 10

 

My Question or Issue

My Spotify app in Win 10 has black screen issue for over 3 months. I tried every methods (listed below). None of it works. I'm really sick of the flawed design of the app.

- Uninstalled, deleted every Spotify folders from AppData\Local and AppData\Roaming, turned off PC, and reinstalled from Spotify website (and run it under Admin mode)

- Disabled hardware acceleration

- Add http://spclient.wg.spotify.com to the firewall/anti-virus app.

This is getting really ridiculous.

This works! Thank you. 

At the same time, I'm surprised that it's been a year and no one at Spotify is willing to fix this simple issue. It pretty much says a lot about the company -- They are willing to spend millions of dollars on Racists Joe Rogan and defending him, but unwilling to spend a few minutes fixing a major technical issue for its customers.  Pretty Shameful.
