Spotify stops downloading music after a few seconds
by Clay Zimmerly on Wednesday July 27th 2011, 21:03
Not sure what happened. It was working fine, then today I opened it up and it played a few seconds of a song and then it just stopped. The timer also stopped, so it's not just that my sound went out. Spotify stopped playing the song. But it still says it's playing. I tried to hit pause and then play again and nothing. I tried to play a different song... and nothing. I closed Spotify completely and re-opened it and same thing. Plays a song for a few seconds and then just stops downloading it.
