Google music play
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:02:27 pm »
Hi all

I would like to know if anyone succeeded in listening to the music storaged in google music play (not google drive) with some player
It is working for me with nuvola player, but i would like to make it work with a normal music player like rhythmbox (i can't login after installing the plugin: It doesn't do anything after entering my gmail and password)
I don't mind if you suggest another music player

Thanks in advance

which version of rhythmbox are you running ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep rhythmbox

ii  librhythmbox-core7                                          2.99.1-0ubuntu1                        amd64        support library for the rhythmbox music player
rc  librhythmbox-core8                                          3.0.2-0ubuntu2+grilo                   amd64        support library for the rhythmbox music player
ii  rhythmbox                                                   2.99.1-0ubuntu1                        amd64        music player and organizer for GNOME
ii  rhythmbox-data                                              2.99.1-0ubuntu1                        all          data files for rhythmbox

I ended doing it with synaptic package manager and force version

Dunno if I can help much here, I don't have (and doon't really want) an account.

Is there a way to get a free account (or maybe a demo account) so I could test it ?

Thank you, I have seen a lot of options to listen to Spotify, but my music is stored on Google Play Music service.

Yes, google play music is free. (You can pay for All Access I think and then you get more functions... You can even get 30 days trial of All Access, but I unchecked that/didn't subscribe)
With the free account you can upload up to 20000 songs (no size limit)
If you want you can register following this guide:

Thank you.
