I'm experiencing a problem with the desktop version of Spotify ( 188.8.131.52.g15edf1ec ). It opens and closes as it should but doesn't play anything, and if it does, it plays for 3 seconds and then stops up. It keeps going "Offline" itself for a short time, then a notification saying "Can't play the current song." comes up. Then it goes offline again. Error Code: 4 comes also up from time to time. I've been trying to use some old techinques found on the forums; Changing the Ipv4 settings, DNS, Disabling Local Files, Uninstalling, reinstalling. None seem to help. Now I see that more recent posters seem to be having the same issue that I do. I believe this is a desktop version releated problem as it was working fine all the time before.
Web Player (play.spotify.com) works fine, so does my Android app. It's just the desktop version that doesn't work.
Log File: http://pastebin.com/dJiBUS9e . From when I launch Spotify, try to play two songs. None work, both give me the Offline and Can't play this song notification and then close the program.
My laptop with 184.108.40.206 doesn't have this issue.
However, downgrading the desktop from 1.0.48 to 1.0.42 doesn't seem to fix the issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've noticed that some VoIP apps had bad connection as well. Thought it might have something to do with my network adapter drivers. I've got the Killer E2200 adapter. Updated it with latest beta drivers and it solved all the issues, both with Spotfiy and with VoIP.
