About a month ago I noticed Spotify would not play random songs, usually ones not already added to my playlist. This made music discovery very difficult on a music discovery platform.
Eventually songs on my playlists would also not be available. This consistently got worse.
I followed the steps here on the community site. A clean reinstall deleted all the data from my playlists. Now, there's just my local files in the old playlists, none of the music I saved from Spotify's online listings. I can play none of these local files through Spotify, they're all grayed out.
Multiple clean reinstalls later, nothing changes.
What can I do to get my playlists back if the "Playlist Recovery" section of the site only provides me with more empty playlists and not the contents of those playlists? I can't even port over all the music I found to a new program because I can't remember the hundreds of songs I saved.
