There could be other reasons that cause "Spotify won't play offline" on other players and devices. If you are interested in it, check the point of views as follows.

Spotify Downloaded Files are Cached and Encrypted

Spotify source songs from its server are in OGG format. When you download the songs offline, you won't get OGG files but only encrypted cache files. They can be decoded and played by Spotify player only. So you won't be able to find these files let alone play them on other players.

Spotify Songs are Combined with Protection

Due to the protection, Spotify only allows paid users to listen to the music offline. It will verify your account by connecting to the Spotify server. If you have already put the songs offline, then you need to login to Spotify Premium account at least one time every 30 days.

Also, you are limited to download up to 10000 songs in 3 devices. This means you can get up to 3333 songs offline for each device.

Now you know why Spotify not playing downloaded songs. The thorough solution requires help from DRmare Spotify Music Converter. Why not have a try?
