no thats not it dude. i can stream from drive on chrome just fine. i also tried using the add-on on a non proxy network and it also works
Another strange one has shown up, have put a few TV shows onto my google drive, the shows scan ok but only one shows up in the TV section of kodi.

Here is my log file: https://paste.kodi.tv/hedidameka

Thank you.
Hello, after I updated new kodi, it doesn't show previous episode i watched anymore. How can turn it on, i really don't know what episode i watched and what episode i haven't watched yet, please help.
Guys why not open .strm in kodi 18?

Edit. Solved
=11ptGreat App!
One issue though: After about 2 Month the app wanted again to perfom the initial security check (with entering the code at https://drive-login.herokuapp.com/ and so on). But why? Can this second (and third and fourth …) check be switched off?
I can understand it when implementing the App for the first time, but after two months again? And does it come again after the next 2 month?
This is a bit too much, I think.
Thank you!

Fine work on the add-on!  When people were having the problems with the "Source is to Slow" and you added the selection to "Always ask for the stream format before play". I think the main problem is the actual video file (MKV). When I selected Original on a 1gb file it wont play but I have selected a 23gb file and play it from Original it will play. So I am thinking the problem is in the Encoding of the files. Everyone uses different software and different settings and I think that is the main problem which is causing a headache for everyone when they want to playback their files. On the computer I have no problems playing the files through the computer straight from my team drive through the chrome browser. But for some reason I am guessing Kodi and its transcoding or something has a problem playing some files in the original format.
Is there a way to login to Google Drive and only access certain directories or login with only access to specific path?
Do you mean access to a google-Drive-Folder that has been shared like for example https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1BWT2Z... ?
I could not find the possibility to acces Internet-Folders by Kodi...
But you can use e.g. on PC something like RaiDrive (its free) and assign a "local" drive (e.g. ZSmile to google drive. Then you find "Z:" in Kodi and you can access all you want on your google Drive.
With Android this works also with e.g. FileManager+ . There you can go to "Cloud" and klick on any Video of your google drive an you get a list of all installed players (e.g.Kodi etc) for opening the video.

I cannot understand why Kodi does not provide the possibility to stream from a internet-sources (like the URL above). If this was possible, you would not need any connection to Goggle drive, entering no account-information etc., nothing, just the URL like the one above...
Kodi 18 Does solve nothing concerning this problem: How to open shared Videos in Google Drive without logging in into Google drive...
You say you can wathch GD-Videos in Kodi without logging in to google drive? Without the GD-App or an equivalent (e.g. a local disk drive that is in reality GD)?

How to add Google Drive as a source?
1. Add an account.
2. The source path is: http://localhost:8587/source/.

how do i do it?
i have added a team drive into the addon and can play the files from there.
but i want to scan the files as movies and see in my library.
pls help

i went to video-files-add videos
now what option do i select here? is it add network location -> web server directory?
type - http://localhost:8587/source/
is this right? should i type source or type my google id?
Just installed your add-on onto my phone with Kodi 17.6. Would like to play music while I work (I drive a cab). Running into an issue with file structures. If a music file is in the root Drive folder, the add-on sees it and will play it. But when I add a discography of a particular artist or band, when I select that folder it doesn't see any of the albums in that directory. 

Example: Alanis Morisette's "Uninvited" is in my Drive root file. This file plays fine for me. But as a test I have Pink Floyd's entire discography on my drive. I can see the folder "Pink Floyd" but none of the albums inside that folder appear. 

Did I do something wrong during setup? If I did and can get the add-on to recognize each album under a particular artist, will I be able to easily select playing that entire album? The stock Google player for Drive only allows for one song at a time. Suggestions?
Hello, thanks for such a great add-on. I am new to trying to create strm files. I've tried a couple times and it acts like it's doing it, but nothing seems to be created. Up in the right hand corner I see it giving the percent as it goes through each directory, but I've never gotten files out of it
Here are my questions
I have the strm files going back to my cloud drive in a specific directory, is that allowed? Is there a better way?
Do I need to sort them by TV and movie?
Can I share the strm files with someone else and it stream?
