I've been using the Spotify Web player via Microsoft Edge for a while now and never had any problems with it. However, recentlly I started to just get the error that I need to "enable the webplayer". It links me to a support article which describes that I need to download a media pack. This media pack however is just meant for Windows 10 N editions (these come without any codecs). On Windows 10 Home (the platform I'm using), these codecs come already preinstalled. I don't know why this isn't working, because I didn't install updates when it stopped working (I already was on the latest updates when it still worked fine). It also works fine in other browsers on the same machine (e.g. Chrome and Firefox). Also the option for media licenses in Edge is enabled.
