Long delay at playing song for first time

When I try to play a song after launching Spotify, it has 5-15 seconds delay before it plays the song. This problem only occurs when I connected to the internet (which I assume equalify tries to authenticate the serial number app to the server).

It is no big deal tho.


Operating system: Windows 10 21H1
Spotify for Windows

Hey there.
Anything that happens at Equalify load/startup should not take more than a couple milliseconds.

Can i ask where you are located?

Currently located in Indonesia.

The startup is fast, although when start to play the music I have to wait 10-15 seconds. Afterward, no wait no hassle :smiley:

It is strange that the delay is that long. I cant go into details about what happens at launch due to security reasons, but there is nothing that should take more that a few hundred milliseconds at most, including any auth requests. I did a ping from the server to the IP you posted the last message from and it was below 200ms.

I will look into it and see if there is something i can do about it !

The problem seems resolved after the latest update, thank you!
