You will notice that gradually we are narrowing the problem issues. Now let’s discuss in detail all such problems and their solutions.
Hardware or Internet Connectivity related problem in listing online music
At first, check the cable connection of the sound system connected to your computer. And if you are using a wireless connection, then please the connection is established successfully and is in connected status. In case you are using Bluetooth headphones, confirm that your headphone is not running out of battery. In such a case recharge the battery of the headphone or any other sound system running on the battery.
Also check your internet connectivity, whether your router and other devices are working fine or not.
However, there is not much in this section. This section is mentioned, just because, in cases where the problem is very simple, but we are unable to resolve it. As in most cases, we indulge in searching the difficult technical issues and miss out on simple ones. And at last, get puzzled.
Operating System-related issue which hinders music play
If you are using Windows operating system, please ensure that you are not using the N version. This is because the N version of the Windows operating system does not come with the Media player functionality. However, if you find that the N version of the Windows operating system is installed in your system, then you have to download the Media Feature Pack for N versions of Windows 10 from Microsoft’s website. Don’t forget that this media feature pack for the N version of Windows 10 wouldn’t work with other versions of Windows 10 or Windows 11.
And if you are using any other operating system, then please ensure you have a proper sound driver installed into your system. Otherwise, no sound will output from your system.
