My Question or Issue

 

I have had Spotify premium for more than a year, and recently (the past two weeks or so) I've been having an issue where I will play one song in a playlist or album, it plays that song, and then it won't play another song. If I put something in a queue, it won't play that either. Some songs won't play no matter what. On mobile (iphone 6s, IOS 11.2.1) everything works fine, the only issue being that I can no longer link my phone to my computer (controlling desktop spotify from my phone or vice versa). The problem occurs when trying to play local files or music hosted by Spotify. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

 

I have already looked into this issue, and my own troubleshooting, as well as solutions in other threads from people with similar problems, have not fixed this for me.

 

I have tried:

Restarting Spotify

Reinstalling Spotify

Restarting my computer

Changing playback quality and other settings

Logging out of my Spotify account and logging back in

 

 And unfortunately none of it has worked for me.

Hi thanks for your concern! I was actually able to fix the issue myself by going to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and opening the file “hosts” in notepad as an administrator and commenting out any line that contained the word “spotify” by putting a # at the beginning of the line.

Hi there!

I'm sorry to hear that.
Could you let me know the exact version of Spotify you're using?

I'll see what I can suggest next!
