Music playing but not podcasts

Music playing but not podcasts

ekglenny098
I am trying to listen to a podcasts on my computer (normally not an issue). However, today, I am unable to listen to any podcasts. I can listen to music fine and I can listen to podcasts when I'm logged out but not when I'm logged into my account. This also isn't a problem when I'm playing things from my phone. I am a premium member and this hasn't been an issue before today so I'm unclear where the problem is. Thank you in advance for any clarity on the matter!

Hey there @ekglenny098,

 

Thanks for the post.

 

Can you let us know if this is happening only with one particular podcast or with any podcast at all?

 

Cheers.

Hey there,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

Are you using the web player to play the podcasts or the desktop app?

 

Some podcasts won't be playable on the web player, that's why I'm asking.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

Hey there @user-removed, 

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

Could you send us the URI of the podcasts you're having issues with? Also, we'd like to know if your girlfriend listens to the same podcasts on the web player as well. 

 

On another note, could you create a test account and check if the same happens using that account too?

 

Keep us posted.

Hi there @user-removed, 

 

Thanks for your quick reply and for sending us this info. 

 

We couldn't replicate this on our end. In this case, we suggest reaching out to our Support team through any of these channels so they can check if everything is ok with your account's cache and help you removing it.

 

If removing your account's cache doesn't work, we suggest transferring your content from your current account to the new one. You can use the steps in this FAQ. 

 

If you're paying for a Premium subscription, we suggest cancelling your subscription first and waiting for the account to revert to the free service so you can subscribe from the new one.

 

In case you're a Premium Family or a Duo member, there's no need to wait, you can ask the administrator of the plan tp send you a new invite link.

 

Let us know how it goes.
