Hey @Puzz90,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

Does this happen only with a particular episode or with all the episodes from the podcast?

 

It's also important to check if this happens only on one device or on multiple desktop devices. Also check a different account for the same behavior. You can create a new one or ask a friend to check it.

 

We'd also need a link to an episode as an example so we can further investigate.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

I'm also having some issues listening to podcasts with video. It only happens on the desktop app. I tested on my mobile device and it works just fine.

Here's the link to the episode I was trying to watch/listen: https://open.spotify.com/episode/3ZbdHRpFzYbvt5Xs3QnmzZ?si=a3bf14ee678a4d85

Hey @psyduck94,

 

If you're seeing this error message, it's best to check your hosts file for any entries containing "Spotify" using this guide (link for Windows/for Mac).

 

Let us know if it helps.
