My Question or Issue
My Spotify simply won't work. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, I've tried several of the "fixes" on the forum before posting this and nothing's worked. Whenever I try to play a song, it selects it but doesn't play. Stuck at the 0 second mark. It's frustrating because I'm playing for premium but I've had to use YouTube because of the Spotify app being broken. Is there actually any fix for this? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry to Necro an old post but I've found the fix of the problem. As soon as I did this, Spotify burst into life playing music after doing this
Simply go to your C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc directory,
copy the hosts file to your desktop,
open it with notepad,
delete any entry having to do with spotify,
save and replace the file in the directory above.
It'll be a bit finicky due to the hosts file being in a directory of System32 but as long as you're careful, it'll be fine. Let me know if this works for others and I'll accpet this as a solution
EDIT: Apparently Spotify has released a patch for this issue so make sure your Spotify Clients are up to date!
