Nice work. One issue I see is that it does not organize your content in ABC order. Is it a way to correct that?


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - cguZZMan - 2017-12-03

That's what the option "Order" from the Kodi should be doing. But yes, I just checked and it doesn't work. I'll see if it's a core Kodi issue or the addon should do it. Nor ETA though.

 OK. I notice some of the files will play and some will not. Gives me an error. The g drive Kodi plugin plays everything and the order issue is not a problem. This is very fast . The oprion to not transcode will it be made available soon? Very nice work and set up is very easy .

nice !

How are GOOGLE DRIVE videos exported to our KODI library?


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - cguZZMan - 2017-12-13

@keithcq71 I already pushed a new version to the Kodi repository to fix the play issues, but looks like the merge is going to take a while. In the meantime I would recommend you to install it manually. You can download it from the source code repository here: https://github.com/cguZZman/plugin.googledrive/archive/1.0.1.zip and then just installed within Addons > Install from zip file

@Laser78 navigate to the folder you want to export and then open the context menu of that folder. Then select the option "Export to library (.strm)...". You will need to specify your video export folder, if you haven't done that before.
Finally add that local folder to your library with the option Videos > "Add videos..." > select your local folder, etc.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thank you!


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - Laser78 - 2017-12-16

I have exported the GOOGLE DRIVE folder to a folder defined in the settings,

It´s OK but at the time of pressing to reproduce it this error message appears :

@Laser78 that is resolved by version 1.0.1. You can install it manually. Check the post where I replied you first time. 
I'm waiting for the Kodi team to merge it to the official repository, but looks like it will take a while.
But you can download the zip and install it manually.
Let me know.

 Will that fix the order issues and playback errors on some files?


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - cguZZMan - 2017-12-17

It fixes the playback issues for sure. The order issue will be taken care of soon.

I have noticed that old folders that have been moved or deleted still appear. When setting up , the warning message means what?


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - Laser78 - 2017-12-31

Exactly, those that I have previously deleted also appear to me


RE: Google Drive for KODI - Official Repository - keithcq71 - 2017-12-31

The other Google addon gives you the option to transcode and has a Search feature. I like the speed of this one and easy set up. Hopefully the issues will get fixed. The not verified message means what ?
