Multiple users had multiple issues with the discord music bot like the discord rythm bot not working. Let’s have a look at a few of the problems with solutions.

Many users complained that they are not able to play their YouTube mix playlist and getting an error of “Failed to Load, which is because the YouTube mix is currently not supported by Rythm.

Though there can be many problems while using a music bot, you can try a few below instructions, depending on your problem.

  • Make sure the link preview is on, or else rythm may send blank messages on discord. To enable link preview to go to discord settings > Text & Images > Enable “Show website preview info from links pasted into chat”
