I got that same message using Spotify on my mac (after having disconnected from a speaker device).  I tried to close Spotify and reopen it.  That didn't work.  Then, I quit Spotify and reopened it.  That worked.  I didn't have to restart or play the music from my phone.

Solution!

I disabled crossfading tracks and it worked for me. It's under Playback in Settings. Hope this works for you!

None of the ways to solve this issue has worked for me... such a random issue...

Hey @moxypants,

 

The issue is being looked into in this thread too. In it, there are several possible solutions. I'm sure one of them will solve it for you.

I had the same error message and it was because I was connected to my companies VPN. Once I disconnected all of the songs were available to play again.

Test if you couldn't play youtube videos too. I did a restart of my machine and it fixed the issue. Apparently there was a java or plug-in update my firefox kicked off. If restart doesn't work, try updating your java JRE or browser plug-ins that have some relation to music controls.

Problem was frustrating me too!  I found the following worked for me.

  1. Close Spotify.
  2. Open Windows Task Manager (on Windows 10 you right click the Windows start button and it's on that menu)
  3. Locate Windows process called 'SpotifyWebHelper (32 bit)'
  4. Select it and then End Task (button)
  5. End Task on any other 'Spotify' tasks
  6. Restart Spotify and it all works fine.

I have been having the same problem for months. Turning off hardware acceleration and re-installing both don't work.

 

Any other ideas?
