Every since I installed Spotify on my computer, it keeps skipping every few seconds with practically every single song. I tried re-installing but still experience the same problem. Not really sure what else to do, but it's pretty annoying.

I've the same problem - the songs keep skipping about 10 seconds in and then play normally.
It only does this when I change the songs myself and not when the playlist keeps playing on its own.
I've tried re-installing and updating, and I unchecked the "Enable Hardware Acceleration - nothing helps?!

I've discovered the culprit! Hardware acceleration is NO solution. The evil force behind this annoying track skipping is none other than iTunes itself! I discovered this when playing the same song on one machine that has iTunes installed (uploaded from my iTunes on that machine) and another machine that does not have iTunes installed. The result? Skipping on the machine that has iTunes, and no skipping on the machine that does not have iTunes.
So, what say you Spotify admins? I could understand you not wanting to disparage iTunes, or reveal that there is a cross-platform problem between the software for fear of losing subscribers due to compatability issues. Honestly though, you shouldl have discovered this. Now that I have served the problem to you on a platter, it is in your best interests to find a solution.
