How to Fix SO Player Not Working issues

Now as I just said above there can be a number of reasons why SO Player not working on your device. I have written some of the most common reasons along with the solutions below.

1) Internet Connectivity Issue

This can be one of the biggest reasons why SO player is not working on your device, sometimes we can not figure out whether the internet is working or not, and if your internet is not working then you can not use So Player.

So, it is very important to have a working internet connection, you can check if your internet is working fine or not by going to the browser and opening any website, if the website is not opening that means there is some issue in your internet.

You can try changing the internet connection by connecting to different Wi-Fi and then try again, most probably after connecting to the different Wi-Fi your problem will get resolved. If the problem is still then try the below solution.

2) Turn Off VPN

I know there are many users who use VPN and there is no issue in using a VPN but it could be the reason why SO Player is not working on your device. VPN changes your IP address and I have seen in some worst cases that their complete account got flagged, so to be on the safer side try to turn off the VPN and then try using the So Player app again.

3) Re-install So Player

If the So Player is still not working after trying the above two solutions then don’t worry, there are some more solutions left. Sometimes what happens is that the apps get corrupted for some reason, and it might be the reason why SO Player is not working, so to fix this problem you have first uninstalled the current version of So Player and then download and install the So Player app again.

4) Update So Player

Developers keep pushing the updates to make the app work without any flaws. It is very important to install the updates on a regular basis. If you haven’t updated your So Player app for ages then I highly suggest you do it now. Using an older version of the app is not at all recommended and it might be the reason for not working So Player on a firestick or any other device.

You can update So Player directly from the settings of your app or you can uninstall the current version of So Player and download the latest version of So Player from here.

5) Contact Support

Now if any of the above solutions are not working for you then the only option that is left is to contact the support center and get your issue solved asap. There might be some bug that is preventing the app to run smoothly. So, I highly recommend you to go to the help center page of SO Player and describe to them the issue that you are facing right now and I am 100% sure that they will help you in fixing your So Player issue.

  2. I had Gen2TV, which used soPlay for streaming, for almost 5 years with no problems at all. Until, early April 2022. Something happened to the system, I can get no live stream TV, TV shows are only giving the message, “no Data available”. Rumor on the internet is that SoPlay is on its way out. Im starting to think this may be the case.
