Desktop users can type chrome://settings/content/protected content in their Chrome address bar and enable this option: Sites can play protected content.
Firefox people should ensure that they can play DRM-controlled content.
For this, head over to the Firefox settings (or directly paste about: preferences in your Firefox address bar) and search for DRM in the search bar. Finally, check that this feature is turned on.
Edge users can enter this edge://settings/content/protectedContent?search=media in the URL barto check if websites can play protected content.
Notably, the process to allow protected content depends on the web browser at hand.
Flush DNS Cache
Every operating system caches some information about the web content it surfs. It helps to serve that content quickly should the user revisit the website.
But sometimes, it creates issues with the content delivery. So, try flushing the DNS cache if nothing has worked for you yet. It’s absolutely safe and will reset your internet connectivity settings.
This fix will reset your browser settings while keeping the browsing history intact.
Again, this process is browser-dependent. For Chrome, navigate to the reset setting by typing this chrome://settings/reset in the URL bar. Then click the boxed tab: Restore settings to their original defaults.
Next, click the Reset settings button at the bottom and check if your Spotify web player works again.
Similarly, you can reset other browsers like Firefox and Edge:
Media Feature pack
This applies to the Windows 10 N edition. Install the media feature pack from the Microsoft Download Center. This will enable the operating system with the required multimedia capabilities.
Clear Browsing Data
This is the last resort. Clear all of your browsing data or uninstall & reinstall your browser.
I hope that you’re enjoying your Spotify web player again.
But if you’re still struggling, try contacting Spotify support or installing a Spotify application for your platform.
