I completely uninstalled the old version of Google Drive, added your repo and installed it directly from there, version 1.3.3

Do I need to have 2 versions of your Add-on, 1.2.0 and 1.3.3, to makes it work as smoothly as before? I thought it's only possible to install one version at a time?

One version is for the Google Drive addon (1.3.3). This addon has a dependency on the Cloud Drive Common addon, which its latest version is 1.2.10.
These are two different addons which work together.

Only happens since last update. I've tested and have the same issue on two seperate Android Tv mi boxes with Kodi 18.5. any ideas? Thanks in advance
As mentioned before, source mode will not work anymore due to the changes from google to the Drive API. I have an idea that I need to test before making the final decision to remove it definitely. But I recommend you to move your library to strm files.

Thank you for your reply. I will try that.

And I will echo what the dude above me said. Thank you very much for your efforts and trying to make this amazing Add-On work even better.

Ahh that's a shame, cause I have several users who I've shared my gdrive movies folder with and it was a great system for them non tech users just updating the movies library on startup and getting all my latest movies. Anybody knows of an alternative cloud storage that works well as a source for kodi?

Why can't you use strm files?
Anybody knows of any instructions how to use those strm files?

Hey, take a look at this comment: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2923331 

You will find an album of photos of the set up I have here to have the .strm method working. If you set this correctly it will work as if you were using the addon as source (just like you did before).

You're getting dangerously close to having issues with our piracy policy (wiki) with questions like that...

Kind regards,

Never mind, fixed it. But, as many here, can not play any video from Google Drive.
Has the update been pushed on the Kodi repository?

NVM I uninstall delete related settings, then do a reinstall and it worked again. No idea why it generates that error though I didn't change any setting prior to the error.

Gilsonsjc, thanks for that!! I managed to get the strm files on my local drive and it all updates the Movies library and playing fine.
I managed to export my movies as .strm files on my local drive (kodi library). Movies play but the subtitle won't even though the subtitle is inside the same gdrive movie folder and has exactly the same name as the movie. On KODI, would appear that the subtitle is loaded (see pic), but it doesn't appear on the screen. If I download the subtitle and place it inside my kodi library that I created, I can browse the subtile and I can select it from the subtitle menu. However, it still doesn't appear along with the movie. Any idea what I'm missing here?

I'm on the latest version of the add on 1.3.3 with the latest common 1.2.10.
