RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - wrayan - 2015-01-16

Hi,

when trying to update library (initial import, wiped everything before installing alpha3 to get a clean testing environment):

It seems the library is updated anyway though, I can browse songs, artists, albums and genres just fine and open the streams. When trying to browse a composer, I run into the following error though:

I also played around with different views a bit. It kinda works, meaning kodi remembers the view I used last time for a specific folder. However, unfortunately I have to change the view for every single folder, it's not like I change it to a specific view mode for album list of one artist and it's remembered for all other artists album lists, too. No idea if that's even possible here or what exactly would be required to make it behave that way but at least that's how it works in tv shows for example.

RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - deckard1984 - 2015-01-17

Hi all.

First I want to thank you for this app. But I have a problem by opening a new stream. 5 sec before the actual song ends the app opens the new stream and I get lags in these 5 sec of the song. The visualization has lags as well. I think it would be usefull if the user can choose when the app starts to open the new stream. Because a lag is even worse for me as a bigger gap between songs. Is this problem known or do I have it exclusively?

Some more information:
Raspberry Pi B+ (900MHz)
OS: 13.2
App: 1.2



Regards
deckard


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - Tolriq - 2015-01-18

@foreverguest album_id works ok.

for play_songs seems there's no metadata set in the player and only a videoplayback title Sad

I did not find how to use the play_all for playlists (AMxxxxx) and maybe if possible add support for artists Axxxxxxxxx.

This would make the API complete.

Thanks.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - dexdeadly - 2015-01-19

SWEET!!!! I am so glad I kept going back and forth to get this to work with the Yatse remote. It is the hands down best remote. Torliq I also myself just noticed the t and b difference myself. I was about to post in the thread I had on your site. Just happened to look here first.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - foreverguest - 2015-01-19

@deckard1984, actually it is XBMC who opens the stream, the addon just provide the url. Check if you have crossfade enabled in XBMC settings and try disabling it.

@wrayan, thanks for testing I'll look into these errors. About view modes, yes you have to select the view mode for each and all folders, AFAIK the default view mode is defined by the skin and the user can't do nothing about it, the addon can override the default view mode for the artists and albums listing if you don't disable the option in settings.

@Tolriq, not sure if it is possible for Yatse to pass metadata in the addon call with parameters title, artist and albumart(url), the addon will use these if found. I will work in the playlist and artist call, thanks for your support.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - Tolriq - 2015-01-19

I do not have the meta data so can't send it to you.

Sounds more like a change to make on plugin side when starting the player for songs.

For albums all metadata are correctly filled.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - jonandtice - 2015-01-20

Great add-on. Definitely makes Kodi a more complete solution for me, thanks for the hard work.

I still don't want to accept that we can't add albums from Google Music's library to Kodi's library. I read in past posts that this isn't possible because the song link only lasts one minute. On Google Music on the browser there is an option to share a song/album/artist. It gives a URL link that seems to be persistent. So I created a strm file (Artist/Album/## - Track.strm) that contains the following:
Code:
plugin://plugin.audio.googlemusic.exp/?action=play_song&song_id=XXXXXXXXXX
where XXXXXXXXXX is the song url from the browser.
This works if I go through Music -> Files and browse to where the strm files are. The stream plays but there is no metadata (title, artist, artwork) shown while it plays. They don't scan into the library and I tried creating an NFO file but it didn't work so I think I've gone as far as a can with this.

Are the links obtained by this addon through the API different than the links given on the browser?


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - foreverguest - 2015-01-20

hmm, I thought XBMC only accepted stream urls inside strm files. If it accepts plugin urls then library integration is possible.

Try using this for metadata:
Code:
plugin://plugin.audio.googlemusic.exp/?action=play_song&song_id=XXXXXXXXXX&title=XXXXX&artist=XXXXXXXX&albumart=http://XXXXXX

I got the idea from the NetfliXBMC addon. Any movie or TV show can be added to the library from the context menu. Movie strm files, for example, go to ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.video.netflixbmc/library/Movies and that directory has to be added as a source. When I looked at the netflixbmc strm files I realized that they were plugin urls just like the url you gave for yatse.

So is this something that can be implemented in the future?


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - foreverguest - 2015-01-20

I think so, after we finish 1.3 version I'll look into it.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - foreverguest - 2015-01-21

@Tolriq, version bellow accept commands with params:
- action=play_all & artist_id=Axxxxx
- action=play_all & share_token=AMxxxxx

plugin.audio.googlemusic.exp-1.3alpha4
Also:
- fetch metadata for tracks when not received
- fixes for errors reported


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - corpgator - 2015-01-22

I haven't checked in lately, but you've definitely made great progress. I can actually search all-access now! Getting lots of errors, though, which lead to a lot of blank albums after searching for one:

RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - foreverguest - 2015-01-22

corpgator, could you upload your full log to pastebin, this error doesn't seem to be related to search.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - Tolriq - 2015-01-22

@foreverguest : All works in a4, thanks.


RE: Experimental Google Music Addon - filthycatbox - 2015-01-23

Great work man! The main problem with this plugin is something that I'm sure you have no control over, which is the idiotic structure which Google has with the music library. Rather than browsing Genre/Artist/Album/Song like most other services, they insist on Genre/All Artists and Albums/Songs.

Drives me nuts and makes it a nightmare to browse on my many android devices.

Anyway, keep up the excellent work.
