My Question or Issue
Spotify is skipping all songs in playlists. If I try to play one song I have an "Spotify can't play that now" error. I've tried to restart app/pc. I've reinstalled my audio drivers (I use audio extension card: ASUS XONAR DG). Switich/turing on and off output and input devices doesn't work. Some of these fixed work for once, but the problem in coming bach and now I can't get Spotify to play anything.

For those of you with an ASUS Xonar DG sound card or similar and have recently been unable to use Spotify on your Windows 10 PC as of the last several days I saw a post Virmiculum posted where he/she went into the Xonar Audio Center (sound card software on your computer) and disabled the DSP Mode. I checked mine and had the GSX under DSP mode highlighted in green. It never affected Spotify in the past several years but it appears to cause the recent issue of constantly skipping around to different songs before it can even start playing a song.
After turning off all DSP options and then closing and restarting Spotify I am back in business!!!! I did not change settings before that so I think Spotify just recently started to not like DSP settings being turned on. Hope this helps some others people as it worked for me.
