How I fixed this problem:
1. Delete all SPOTIFY cookies.
2. Disable any adBlocker to all *spotify.com* domain
3. Play any song
4. Enable adBlocker and enjoy!
Hope this helps.
p.s. all this was made on Google Chrome
My friend's and mine Spotify Web Players just were not working on our school computers. I tried clearing all the cache and cookies and stuff (I have no clue what those mean I was just doing what other users were saying to do) and Web Player still wasn't working. I don't know about other users, but this is what was up with mine:
-When I opened the site the play bar at the bottom turned grey after a few seconds. I had managed to click the play button before it turned grey and it made no difference.
-It says music had been recently played but the bar remained grey?? I didn't get it either.
-Clearing cache and cookies and reloading the page wasn't doing anything.
BUT, I think I found the solution. (or at least what worked for mine)
1.) Still clear all your cache and cookies, that might do something.
2.) Open a playlist and reload. Before the bar turns grey, double click on a song.
3.) Something should pop up that says, "Oops, something went wrong. Reload?" Click "Reload".
4.) It should work just fine now! Just double click a song and enjoy your music!
Why is Spotify web not working beacuse you **bleep**ing poeple dont have it on google no more.I had everything on spotify web player and you **bleep** holes just didnt think it was good.C'mon put it back! I work so hard on finding my own place to put my music.
I found that the Spotify web player can get confused sometimes as to what device is playing what. This will lead it to not playing anything in the web player when you click play on a song until it figures out that the browser is where it should be playing. Usually this is fixable by clicking the device list (next to the volume controls) and then clicking on your web browser in the list.
Sometimes, however, it gets stuck. When this happens to me, clicking on the web browser does nothing (ad blocker off, even), and no songs will ever play. Here's what I did to fix it:
This worked for me with the specific problem I was facing, but I'm willing to bet that there is more than one reason why songs stop playing on Spotify.
