My Question or Issue
Spotify quite often "crashes". It stops outputting Sound but shows the Track still as playing. When that happens you can't stop/start the track again and also can't jump to the next song. The whole program becomes unresponsive and goes up in CPU usage, from normally ~0.4-4% up to 15%.
Trying to close Spotify via rightclick on the trayicon removes 3 out of the 4 process. The last one stays and prevents a restart of Spotify until you close it manually via the Taskmanager. Only then you can restart Spotify, otherwise it shows an errormessage which I currently can't remember.
Sometimes I can hear music for hours, sometimes not even minutes without the problem. There is no specific song that crashes the programm, neither a action I take. It also happened when the PC was only playing music and I weren't even using it. So I can't reproduce it, it just happens randomly.
And yes I already reinstalled the App and checked the folder in AppData if it got completly deleted between installs (it did).
The attached screenshot shows the extreme CPU-Usage when Spotify crashes. The CPU never gets overloaded, RAM never gets full, Internet Connection isn't to slow nor does it disconnect or lag-spike, so those things can't be a problem.
