I've been playing music all day through the web player on my Macbook Pro, when all of a sudden (literally after finishing a song) it forgets how to actually play music. As far as I can tell, all functionality remains, apart from playing music - when I click 'play' on something, it appears in the "Recently Played" list, and a 'play' icon appears next to the song I clicked, but nothing else happens. Have tried with countless different songs, nothing works. There was no change to any settings anywhere, and no change to devices being used (I was using my PS4 as well at the time, but didn't change anything on there and like I said, it was working perfectly for hours before this.)
I've just spent hours looking through countless forum posts with similar issues but nothing has fixed my problem, from clearing cache and cookies, resetting all devices, and disabling/enabling Flash, to deleting devices and re-adding. The web player CAN still control the music on my phone and PS4, but this is no good for me when I want to just use the speakers I have plugged into my aux input. It's as if the web player has forgotten that my laptop has the ability to produce sound.
Someone please help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was able to fix this issue. I downloaded the Spotify App, installed it and logged in and was able to play a track as expected. I closed the app and re-launched the web player and it worked again. Odd issue but glad I resolved it.
Hope this helps others in future.
