Why can't I play songs on 8tracks.com? "A selection to play has not been set" always appears.

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
I have tried playing different mixtapes and also enabling cookies but the problem persists. I am unable to listen to anything on 8tracks.com, even though I used to be able to. This problem appears both on my Windows desktop as well as my Macbook. Help appreciated. Thank you.

We thought it had but it seems to have cropped up again. Are you having this issue?

Hello. I recently created an account at 8tracks in September and was able to play everything until a week ago. The page barely loads. When I try pressing play nothing happens! nothing plays! I tried as well on my blackberry phone. didn't work as well. What should I do? I live in Lebanon might this be a problem? It wasn't a couple of weeks ago though

Hey 8tracks, the soundcloud songs of Happy, Counting Stars, Pompeii and a lot more, isn't existing anymore, and it's causing a lot of problem on my mixes! I repeat MIXES!! Please, fix this!

I start a mix, it skips about 4 tracks, and once it stops on a track, it doesn't play. This happens frequently. Other times it will play the first 8 songs fine, then it will skip a couple and stop playing.

Veronica, I ran into a similar problem of 8tracks playback stopping periodically and discovered it was related to the HTTPS Everywhere extension I was using in Chrome. I fixed it by unchecking "Soundcloud" in the HTTPS Everywhere extension, and since then my playback has worked uninterrupted.

If you are using the extension, click the blue lock icon in the address bar and uncheck "Soundcloud":
