My Question or Issue
I am an avid user of Local Files. I've been using them for over a year, a few bugs here and there but nothing I haven't solved or worked around. However, this is a new problem that I've never seen. All my files play on my PC (Windows 10) perfectly, but about 90% don't play on my phone at all. They show up (minus their album art, which isn't normal), and I'm able to click on any of them, but they pop up for a milisecond before not playing and going away. Some of them play just fine, but most of them do not, despite having worked well in the past. I've tried everything I can think of:
-Logged out and back in on both devices
-Checked WiFi connection
-Joined my phone's hotspot to try to sync it properly
-Made sure all the files played on iTunes without a hitch
-Added to a new playlist and tried to redownload from my phone (which didn't take--the phone registers them as downloaded, just not playable).
-Checked both devices for any Spotify updates
-Allowed Spotify through my firewall
I'm not sure what to do. All of these files have worked in the past, and I'm not sure what I've done to change it and how to change it back. Any help would be appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ah, forgot to update.
I ended up undownloading the entire playlist (so nothing was available offline) and then redownloading while the PC was on. Everything synced perfectly, and a few minor bugs I was dealing with in the past also managed to clean themselves up. Thanks for the help, though!
