My Question or Issue
Spotify refuses to play anything that isn't on my playlists. The problem is always occuring on songs that aren't part of my playlists or current radios, and the album cover doesn't show up, as well as the track name and length are missing. I just get that blank cd logo instead.
I can always play these songs on my phone no issues, but the second I try on desktop it doesn't work.
Something peculiar is if I close spotify, add the song into a playlist on my phone, then restart the desktop one, I can occasionally get it working. However I cannot add any songs at all to my playlists on the desktop version.
I do not have any files downloaded to my computer so that is not the issue. I also have reinstalled multiple times, but the problem only gets solved for about a day and then reverts and persists until I do it again. I'm sick of this and would appreciate any help.
EDIT: I have reinstalled for the thousandth time, and now spotify has completely eradicated all my playlists, and nothing at all will play on the desktop app. Everything is gone. The web player is the same and will not work either. I can still use my phone though. I'm beyond frustrated.
