My Question or Issue

Despite changing some flags settings on Chrome, clearing cookies and caches, Spotify continues to pause *every* song at 9 seconds before resuming play. This has been marked as "Solved" in other threads but it hasn't actually. One user - NOT a Spotify employee of any kind - suggested the flags to help with the problem. It helped me for a few weeks before the issue resumed.

 

It would be nice if this was an issue that Spotify would actually look into and truly work on solving. I've been a Spotify user since it was in beta in the US but honestly, this is almost enough to make me switch platforms. It's a small thing but it's wildly irritating.

I've had the same. Experimented with chrome flags similar to those mentioned here and it worked for some time, then came back...

 

So I went to chrome://flags and started experimenting again. ATM it works again, so I'm sharing the flags I used:

I have had this issue for years, and it's really sad that Spotify either doesn't care or pretends it doesn't exist.

I have this same problem and have spent many an hour trying to sort it unsuccessfully, checking all these threads and doing all the things that everyone suggests and it does not work. One "solution" says its a network problem. That seems like a cop out to me. I would love spotify to come up with something because this is a hoorible glitch to have on every single song

Hey folks,

 

Thank you for your posts. We're sorry to hear that you experiencing this. We're happy to assist you.

 

Make sure that your browsers are on the latest available version. If you're unsure, you can look online on what's the current version of the browser you're using to double check.

 

If that doesn't do the trick - would you mind to try out with another internet connection to see if the issue persists?

 

It would also be great if you'd let us know if this occurs on one specific device or multiple devices using the Web Player?

 

Keep us posted. We'll have an eye out for your replies.

 

Cheers!

I'm having the same problem

It works in firefox, but it doesn't with ironchrome


It has to be an Spotify issue because any other streaming service is working fine with ironchrome

hello, 

I encounter this problem and I tried every web browser available to check if the problem still happens (chrome, Firefox, Edge (the new one), Even Vivaldi and Opera) 

And I also changed network, public IP adress, different accounts, cleared the cache, tried to downgrade my Chrome or upgrade it.

Still the same problem.

I checked within the developper debugging console and indeed I find some errors like the following:

 

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 503 ()
6vendor~web-player.0cdc4f4e.js:1 Uncaught (in promise) TransportError: Token provider returned the same token twice.

No it does not come from my network because I tried several networks, I don't have a firewall blocking anything, It worked great previously.

 

If you could direct me toward a solution that would be great.

Hi @Claymobil,


Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!

 

Can you try to clear any entries containing Spotify from the host files on your computer.

 

Follow the instructions in this Solution.

 

Let us know if that helped.

 

Cheers.

Hello, Thanks for the reply !

 

I already tried it and I have no entries in my host file so nothing to delete I'm afraid.
