Windows 11 Pro 21H2 22000.527
When I interact with the player, every action comes with a delay. Video attached. Web version works fine.
Few days ago I reinstalled Windows 11 and updated to the last version and this issue came out. Previously everything worked fine on Windows 11.
I can assume that the problem may be in some third-party programs or components that are necessary for Spotify to work. Although, most likely, Spotify should install them during desktop app installation, if they needed at all. Or perhaps issue in drivers/components of the operating system that for some reason do not work correctly.
Things I did but it didn't help:
- Clean reinstall of Spotify (Both Microsoft Store and not Microsoft Store versions)
- Turned off Hardware acceleration
- Turned off firewall
- Tried few audio devices
- Updated drivers
- Changed cheche size to 1024
RAM should be enough: 32GB. GPU: GTX 1080. Internet speed: 800Mbps
Solved! Go to Solution.
After several hours of trying to fix the error, I managed to do it. The lag was due to the AdGuard program installed on my computer. It is designed to block ads, however, for some unknown reason, it was blocking or filtering the traffic of the Spotify application, which caused a delay in response.
If someone has a similar problem, then check everything related to filtering / blocking any traffic.
I hope this post helps someone!
