I have two problems, one is that Spotify songs will constantly stutter, even when loading nothing, and when loading a web page the stuttering gets 10x worse. I was talking to comcast last night for about 2 hours and nothing is wrong with my internet connection, and 30-40Mbps down should be PLENTY to stream spotify and load a few web pages. The only change I've made recently on this computer is I upgraded to windows 8.1. I've done a clean install of spotify multiple times, and checked/unchecked hardware acceleration. I've also scanned for viruses/malware, deleted all temporary files on my computer, cleared my cache, and defragmented my hard drive.
Second problem is that Spotify Radio will not remember which songs I've liked or disliked. They show up in the "liked from radio" playlist but the next time I run spotify, or even just half an hour later, it'll play a song I disliked earlier. The only songs that it remembers whether I chose thumbs up/down are songs I rated months ago.
If it matters this is not the account I use, it wouldn't let me log in to that account for some reason.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved the problem of music randomly not playing. All the music that wouldn't play were files locally stored on my computer, so I "unlinked" them (whatever that means) and removed them from the "local files" playlist, they work fine now. Stuttering seems to have gone away on it's own, at least for now.
