The local files not playing issue is back. This time it appeared after a Spotify update. Since then I have been desperately looking for a solution, or hiding away in Ubuntu where the issue is not there.
No local files will play. It will tell me, "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it" and that's that. Now I have tried several codecs, made sure Quicktime is installed, tried to update my audio drivers, tried several versions of my audio drivers, tried reinstalling Spotify, tried rebooting...tried just about everything I can think of, even verifying system files to be sure nothing is wrong with the OS itself.
It is driving me insane. Any help?
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64bit Codecs Installed: CoreVorbis_220.127.116.11_20050813, ogg-acm-0036 and l3codecx.exe. Quicktime: Installed.
Thanks for reporting this to us. The right teams are now looking into this matter.
Let us know if any of this works:
Update your audio drivers
Try several versions of your audio drivers
Try reinstalling Spotify and delete the info in AppData
Try rebooting your device
If it doesn't, could you let us know (if you haven't already) :
The exact device you're using now?
The exact version of Spotify you're using now?
Operating system + version?
