So some weeks ago I came across an issue that's been driving me crazy since a while ago.
I like sharing and receiving songs. The problem is that recently all open.spotify links are not working. Discord shared URLs don't show anything about the song, which they should, and if I open it on my browser it fails to load the page. It's not an internet problem. I tried reinstalling spotify and discord but nothing changed. I've also seen that removing certain servers from the "hosts" file in your System32 folder (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc), such as "127.0.0.1 open.spotify.com" causes issues, and I have to say it's still there.
So, what's causing the problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for reaching out.
Are you having trouble opening Spotify links only in Discord? Could you test if you're able to open them with a different messaging app and if possible - on another device?
Also, you mention that you reinstalled the app, did you use this guide? We recommend that one as it's very through.
And to make sure that we're on the same page, did you clear your hosts file from Spotify entries? If not, even though it was written for another topic, this page has instructions on how to do this.
Keep us posted, we’ll keep an eye out for your reply.
