My Question or Issue
I was having issues with my old account so I canceled my subscription and made a new one. Everything seemed to be working correctly the first time I logged in, when I upgraded the account to Premium I couldn't play any song. All songs I tried to play stopped after 4-7 seconds at best or didn't play at all, with a blue message on the top of the application: Can't play current song.
I tried multiple fixes listed in the forum:
- Relog / Reinstall / Restart PC
- Clear cache files in AppData
- Disable hardware acceleration setting
- Enable crossfade to 0 sec
- Play a song from my Android phone and switch to play it on PC
And none of them worked, in fact I had to reinstall Spotify multiple times until it showed my phone under the Devices menu.
All songs work fine in both web player and Android app.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok so I managed to fix this issue by cleaning up all addresses in my hosts file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc I honestly don't know how it affected Spotify but I guess I was blocking some address that Spotify needs.
