Every since I installed Spotify on my computer, it keeps skipping every few seconds with practically every single song. I tried re-installing but still experience the same problem. Not really sure what else to do, but it's pretty annoying.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was having the same problem and after noticing my G35 headset functions weren't working I unplugged/replugged them to reset the drivers and sure enough that was the cause of it skipping. Every 10 seconds it was trying to refresh the driver and failing, causing the skipping for me. Hope this helps at least one other
I figured if it was a server communication issue, it could be fixed by clearing the cache.
First, completely close spotify. The go create a backup of the cache folder "Storage" by renaming it. It is located:
OS X: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Caches/com.spotify.client/Storage/
I renamed mine "StorageBackup" (this later can and should be deleted as long as nothing gets messed up in the meantime).
Restart spotify. It will recreate the storage folder as it tries to write to it. It SHOULD be working now.
*EDIT*This folder is probably hidden for you.
Windows users - should be able to access it anyway through windows explorer. If not, you can navigate to it if you go to your folder options and select to show hidden files and folders. (make sure you switch the USERNAME with your own!)
Mac users - Open finder, hit cmd+shift+G or from the menu select Go > Go To Folder and paste in the file path (make sure you switch the USERNAME with your own!)
Linux Users - you know what ur doing, m8.
Hey there folks,
Thank you for your posts in this thread.
In this case we suggest that you perform a clean reinstall of the app. This is different from a quick reinstall and could be helpful to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble.
If you have an SD card we suggest that you uninstall the app > turn off your phone > take out your SD card > turn on the phone again (without the SD card) > reinstall the app since the card can be corrupted.
Another useful step to do is to remove your hosts files.
If you have Windows, follow these steps:
If you use Mac, follow these steps:
If this happens on your mobile device we suggest that you try the following:
Also, ensure device has enough storage space.
Another useful step to do is to try with another internet connection.
If the issue persist, can you log in with another account on the device - such as a friend's or a family member's to see if the issue persist?
Let us know if we can help you with anything else.
Take care 🙂
