Hi, I've had spotify for a few yesrs now and never had this issue up until recently...
Songs only play for a few seconds (3-10) until they stop and a message saying "The current song cannot be played" pops up and I cant skip to any part to the song to get it to play.
Songs that I've been playing today have suddenly stopped working.
Ive tried a lot of things such as updating my drivers, uninstalling, removing all devices.
I also havent been a premium member so that shouldn't affect it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
So I finally found out a solution after hours and hours of troubleshooting, and I just said "f**k it" and deleted ALL of the files in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc" (where the host file is) and all of a sudden my Spotify started working.
I'd like to mention that I checked my host file and there was nothing in it, it was wiped clean. However for some reason once I deleted all of the files there the music began to work and play.
I went through all of the files and every single one of them were at default settings, so I'm genuinely unsure why it wasn't working, however this was my solution, hope it works for some.
I think maybe deleting all the files isn't necessery.
I have opened the 'hosts' file in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc" with Notepad and just removed the line with Spotify and saved it. Now it works.
