Does anyone have a real solution to the fact that spotify doesn't play ANYTHING (neither local nor remote songs).
I have tried various solutions found on Spotify Community :
- Uninstall / reinstall Spotify and Update flash play
- Update Quicktime
- Unlick the local files in preferences
- Change proxy settings
I have been over a month without music and am literally having a depression for not being able to listen to music at work. Plus i'm starting to get annoyed because I have paid a month's subscription for nothing.
Who thou shalt solve my problem will be sent one kick ass playlist.
Solved! Go to Solution.

This Is the exact same problem as I have, After paying for a subscription i feel completely ripped of after not being able to listen to a single song ! when I click on a song it registers that i have listened to it on facebook and the artwork appears it the bottom corner of spotify but nothing happens from then no error message and no song ! Pretty frustating as it just suddenly decided to stop working !

No error messages.
Connects to internet fine : "What's New" is refreshed at start up, spotify social works, literally just playback doesn't work.
Not an account problem as my spotify works on other computers...
Not really much more I can say....

I also get no sound when using spotify. Same symptons:
Artwork shows up
Shows as being played in queue
Length is shown at bottom but continually stays at 0 even though it is "playing".
Here is what I see:
Spotify Version: 0.8.3.222.g317ab79d
QuickTime Player Version: 7.7.2 (1680.56)
Not sure how to check Flash player version...
Anything else I need to provide so you can help troubleshoot?

Just add ing to the thread. Have the exact same problem. The slider just sits on 0. Worked fine a couple of weeks ago (have been away, haven't listened in a that time). Have resinstalled, updated quicktime and unlinked local files.

Hello all (who had the same problem) ,
I opened my spotify today and it has magically worked again! Does it work for you too???
I noticed a supposidly server problem saturday (spotify on my mac was down for like 5 hours). Maybe the fix to that caused the fix to this....

I have the exakt same problem and have had for months now. Nothing I do seems to work. Signed up for Unlimited and thought that that would solve my problem (silly me) but now I have paid for Unlimited for several months without being able to play music. Getting a bit frustraded here. :/

What version of Windows are you all using? Have you all tried a clean reinstall of your Spotify?
