Lately I am having a constant problem with lag involving the spotify desktop client and its not getting any better.
When I reinstall spotify its amazingly fast and works without a hitch, everything I do on the interface is instantaneous, going through my playlists, searches, advancing a song or adjusting the volume. But as soon as I have to turn off or restart my pc and thus relaunch spotify it will go straight back to being rediculously slow again with more than acceptable user interface lag.
I basically have to reinstall spotify evertime I restart my pc just to have a usable spotify, as in that im not so **bleep** frustrated by how cr*p and slow it is all the time otherwise. The over all user interface lag can be so frustrating especially for a 'premium service'
I have tried all of the suggested methods amongst the other posts in the forums such as flushing all the %appdata% locations and the like but it always goes back to being stupid slow after I restart my machine.
I get the impretion that the client is syncing with something cloud based and reimposing that each time I try to flush it out.
I'd like to point out that on all the computers I've ever used or where ever I've lived over the years regardless of internet connection speeds and what not that the spotify desktop client has always had questionable performance issues of its own compared to other services.
Whats going on?
Internet Speed 5-8 MegaBytes per second
Ping is usually well below 100ms on any decent service.
