    Since this morning Apple Music stopped working on my Mac (iTunes 12.3.1.23). I tried to play some music for my iCloud Music Library and they won't play, saying that "You must be connected to the Internet in order to play Apple Music songs.", which is crazy because I am connected.

    I tried signing off Apple Music, iTunes Store, re-enablign iCloud Music Library, restarting OS X. Nothing seems to be working. It's working perfectly on my iPhone, I can play everything and even add albums and tracks to My Music and they will show up on iTunes, but they won't play. Streaming doesn't work either. The "For You" section never loads any tracks (though it loads the UI and everything). Beats 1 works OK.

    The crazy thing is that I can download the tracks for offline listening, they just won't stream or play back.
    Any ideas?

    I've had trouble streaming stuff in iTunes this morning as well, it does seem to have got better over the last hour or so, who knows whats going on

    EDIT

    Nope mines still not right. If I stream an Apple playlist it loads and plays the first song ok but as soon as the second song starts playing its not loading ahead fast enough and keeps stopping, I'm on a wires 76meg fibre connection :(

    Glad I'm not the only one. AM twitter account is being filled with complaints as well. Guess I'll wait it out.

    Good luck... I've been having this issue since yesterday...

    I have all my offline music downloaded (luckily) before the issue happened, but now unable top play any of them. So for me, its not better. Add to this garbled audio with streaming iTunes purchased movies. Even straming with Apple music only does nothing.. Gone through the usual, new user

    However, this problem only happens on Mac,, Doesn't affect iOS when using same ID. So, check again from Mac.

    I tell ya,,, I dunno whats happening with icloud, and i blame Apple music,ever since it came along, perhaps some mucked up code, propagation issues etc... but whatever it is, its all due to some change somewhere..

    icloud may have not been as bad in the past... but ever since AM launched,, all services have had nothing but trouble at some stage.... For me, its been on a daily basis. for selected items and/or content.

    Sure, i'll wait it out too, (till something else happens) but there is only so much u can take.
