My Question or Issue

 

The Spotify desktop software no longer plays through my streaming device via Connect. The device appears briefly as a Connect option. The software is trying to connect to the streaming device which is indicated by the application flickering at the bottom of the screen.

I am able to use Spotify Connect via a Windows 7 PC, Android phone and via the webplayer.

I have re-set the router on my network and this made no difference. 

Anyone else experiencing similiar problems?

Unstalled the desktop software. Reinstalled the software. All good. Problem solved. For now.

I have the same problem. However, reinstalling the software has not solved it. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I would make sure that the software has been completely removed, including from the registry. I used Revo Unstaller freeware to remove the desktop application.

I hope this works for you.

Thank you very much for the suggestion. Good to see that this was exactly what I did yesterday after I posted my call for help. But: no success.

Do you (or anyone else?) have the Spotify registry locations so that I can remove the registries manually?

New day. The problem has returned exactly as before. A clean installation was not the solution.

Any thoughts.

Clean install. Tidied the registry with CCleaner. Restarted laptop. Same problem again. Desktop software not able to use Spotify Connect.

I am having exactly the same problem, reinstalling only fix the problem for the first time start up, and then the problem reappear

Exact same issue here too as I reported in another thread.

 

Win10 client had been working fine for many years, but as of the last few days the Spotify Connect shows devices but selecting any of them does nothing.

Clean reinstall of latest version fixed it for the first time use, but after a while (ie, overnight) the issue comes back so must reinstall AGAIN.

 

Spotify Connect works fine using Web Player and iOS.

I uninstalled using Windows 10. Used CCleaner to 'tidy up' the laptop. Reinstalled the Spotify desktop application. It worked fine. Spotify Connect worked OK. Restarted the laptop. The software stopped working again.

Web player, Windows 7 and Andoid apps work fine.
