I have the web player running along side the desktop app for testing purposes.
I have Windows 10 with all updates, and the latest verison of Spotify Desktop App. I am a subscriber, and have enabled high quality streaming in the app.
When I stream music from the Web Player in the latest Microsoft Edge browser, it plays out of all speakers in my 5.1 system. When I stream the same song from the desktop app, it plays in stero only.
I see a bunch of threads that deal with configuring audio card settings. However, mine is obviously working fine with the browser, and with other apps. Spotify desktop app is the only thing playing in stereo rather than multi channel surround sound.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you try launching Spotify with --disable-audio-output-resampler ?
Execute the following command ( either in CMD or run ) :
Make sure to change "YourUSER " accordingly!
Let me know the outcome! 🙂
