My Question or Issue
As the subject says, when playing songs from any playlist or any part of the library, currently spotify is skipping songs every ~0.5 seconds until it eventually reaches a point where it kicks back with an error showing 'Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it.'
I've done some testing and noticed if you skip forwards manually, it will continue skipping forwards endlessly; if you skip backwards manually, it will proceed to skip backwards until it exhausts the list and then provides the same error.
I am not the only one this is affecting either; currently there are 3 people on my team at work all encountering this issue, all on different makes of PC's. We have all tried uninstalling and reinstalling, restarting the devices and I have tried some of the more historical fixes which seem similar to problems reported in previous years such as reinstalling the audio drivers etc.
Any suggestions for a fix, or is this looking to be a widespread problem across Spotify currently?
