I had the same issue happen after trying to play a list I downloaded and tried to play via a HDMI connection to my TV.  Spotify needs to fix this!

 

I just tried re-naming the local .bnk file and still no luck.

Hi!  Do you know how I find the local files on a Mac in order to re-name them?  I don't know how to find the .bnk files.  Thanks!!

Deleting APP data still not helping, also tried all other suggested things.

I tried every solution suggested in this and other threads but nothing worked.

I can't play not only single tracks but entire playlists. The "Your Discover Weekly" playlist is completely inaccessible. Sometimes, when a song ends, it starts skipping one by one all the remaining tracks.

OS: Win10 

System: Desktop pc

Do you have the folder location for a MAC? Having the same problem, the first 4 songs on my playinglist are skipped after just 1 second.

Hi, unfortunatly not. For years I've used iPad alot for Spotify.. never a problem. Sorry.

But iOs is different from MacOs, so I don't have any problems with the iOs app either. It works as it supposed to work on my iPhone, so it is only the desktop version which has a bug (and it is a bug).
