PC - not using Windows Store version
Windows 10 version 1809
My Question or Issue
Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it.
That's all I see whenever I try to play any singular song. If I try to play a playlist it just flies through it without making a sound. It won't even play local files - when I try to play a local file it doesn't do anything.
Web version and Windows Store versions work fine but there's reasons I can't use them that I won't disclose in this thread.
Some things I've tried
Uninstalling and reinstalling Spotify - multiple times
Booting into safe mode (with internet access)
Booting into safe mode (without internet access - to try to play local files)
Deleting lines from the hosts file (even though no lines refer to Spotify)
Uninstalling and reinstalling audio drivers
Uninstalling and reinstalling video drivers
Enabling all disabled playback and recording devices in Windows 10
Disabling hardware acceleration
Disabling local files
Enabling and disabling "Crossfade songs"
Changing Proxy settings from "Auto Detect" to "No Proxy" and back
Changing streaming quality
Disabling "Normalize volume"
Deleting all files referring to Spotify (namely the Spotify folder in AppData\Roaming and the Spotify folder in AppData\Local)
Just deleting local-files.bnk
Tried multiple different accounts
Enabling my VPN
Making exceptions for Spotify in Windows Firewall settings
Disabling the firewall
Running as administrator
Downloading older version of Spotify
Un-linking my Spotify account from Discord
