I found that the problem was that I didn't have an audio device connected. My computer was not recognising my bluetooth headphones for some reason. Once I connected my wired headphones, the error message went away and Spotify started working again.
Hi, This has happened to all of the songs I've imported to my playlist. Its grayed out on the play gives me the error message "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it". " I can still play these songs from the playlist on my iPhone. I have the playlist downloaded on my iPhone, but not on the computer so I think that's causing the difference. So do I need to re-add every song? Or is there another way? P.s I have tried deleting the local files in the user folder already. Anyways thanks in advance.
Hi, so OK, this happened to me again (second time), few days ago, my previous methood did not work. In short, simply (for Windows OS) shut down spotify, go to the folder C:\Users\'name of your pc'\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Users now rename or delete all files having the ending .bnk in all folders in the 'user' folder (if there are more than one folder) then when you are sure there are no .bnk 'old' files left, reboot your PC and you should be good !! hopefully 🙂
Btw. this happened to my spotify when I clicked a song that one of the people I follow was listening too !!
