Hey folks,


Thanks for reporting this issue to us.


Our developer team is currently testing out a solution.


Could you clear the cache and cookies of your browser, restart it and leave a comment if the issue persists?




Hello, I reported same issue wednesday (broken in vivaldi 3.3, but was ok with Chrome and Edge).


Since then it broke also in Chrome and Edge, but yesterday (Friday AM in France) it was ok again in Chrome and Edge, but still not working in Vivaldi.


Today, I applied your instructions in Vivaldi (clear cache and cookies, restart), but I'm still having the issue with this browser.


Thanks for the work of your team (I can live with using Edge or Chrome, but would appreciate using Vivaldi only 😁).




Web Player (free), Windows 10 PC, CCleaner browser, but I've also tried Opera and Chrome.

Same problem - skips through a few seconds of four songs, plays ads, plays a few seconds of a song then freezes.

I've cleared cookies, ran virus and malware check, and restarted. Still the same.

I was still able to play podcasts, but they've started skipping and freezing too.



I'm having the same issue on Windows 10, using Chromium, not Chrome.

Only ads can play, all songs keep skipping, some may play for a few seconds .

On another PC with Chrome 86, it works fine.


This started a few days ago. Tried clearing all cache, cookie, etc. of Spotify, and it still doesn't work.


Plan: Free
