Hey man!

 

I did what you said and the box was already unchecked so I checked it and set it for Windows 8 and it seems to have solved the problem. 🙂

Hey there and welcome to the community!

 

I hadn't heard of anything so far. Have you tried logging out and back in? Also uninstall/reinstall?

Frustrating site. Music stops in mid-song. Reloading doesn't help. You might get ten minutes of unpaused music during an entire day. I've had Spotify for a while...same complaints from other users on Chrome...and Spotify always acts as if this is a NEW and Baffling problem that is probably our (the customers') fault.  Earbits is limited, but it NEVER goes down like this site does.

Hey, the box was unchecked for me as well but unlike our friend on windows 8 mine did not start working after i set it up for my system (which is windows 7). I've uninstalled and reinstalled, killed all of the files from it that are left behind upon uninstalling, and done what you suggested with the preferences. any ideas?
