I am trying to load a local song from my desktop, such that I can play it on my phone and stream to other spotify playing from my phone. It plays fine on my desktop Spotify app, and shows up on in a playlist on my phone but it cannot be played, even after setting it to "download". I get the same behavior on the web client: it shows the track, but I cannot play it.
I am aware that certain file types cannot be played, so I took the step of exporting this file to WAV and re-encoding it to MP3 with iTunes. Here's the MP3 info from ffpmeg. Anyone have an idea about why this file is not able to load/play on the mobile Spotify app? I am wondering if it is too large/long. It's 41MB in total.
