Just adding my name to the list in the hope that Spotify do something about it. It is so aggravating - waiting for it to happen again - that I have stopped using it. If this continues I will cancel my payment and use an alternative. It only started yesterday (5th May) for me, and everything else on my computer is working fine.
Tried to uncheck High Quality under Preferences. The music plays WITHOUT pauses. I have run a speed test on my connection : 40000 kbit/s. So that shouldn't be the problem. I've been in contact with Spotify Support, they wants me to send a screen shot when it happens !!!!!! Hope all you good folks contacts Spotify Support, so that they can se that there IS a lroblem.
Npyu_System - We're here pretty regularly! We can't get around to everyone sadly, but we try our best
The first thing to try would to uncheck "Enable Hardware Acceleration" over on your preferences menu - Judging by your first post on this thread, it seems you've tried that. Other things you could try is turning off both Crossfade and Gapless playback.
Do DartyBox run a Cable internet system at all? Similar to say, Virgin Media or Ziggo?
To be fair to Spotify, when I emailed them I got a comprehensive reply suggesting what I should do about the problem. I haven't got round to doing it yet as there's some complex stuff in there for a simpleton like me (I fell at the second fence - renew my drivers??) but the problem seems to be fixing itself anyway. The songs aren't stopping now, but it's still buffering for a long time, which was never a problem before.
