Without reading thru all of the old thread.. Does this version require the same dependencies listed in the first part of the other thread?

No, just the zip file posted.
Hi foreverguest, I asked this in Vially's thread buy he didn't mention it. Have you got any plans to update search to include All Access tracks? I assume this isn't a trivial addition but it would be really great to get to music from the whole catalogue.

+2 :-)
I could try to implement All Access search but I don't have an All Access account, so no way to test it.

If someone is willing to be a volunteer and do the heavy testing, please raise your hand.
I can do testing and probably even fix some simple bugs myself
I can do light testing :-) and if you havent tried it already, there is a 30 day free trial on All Access.

Therefor Spotify is better imo , to bad there isn't a free account addon yet Wink
And if you own a Chromecast you get 3 months of free subscription now.
Since I have uploaded my own music to google play I would love to have the main menu music button go straight to the google music addon.
More specifically I would like to have a listing with all albums, sorted by artist (artist - album).

My wish prompts two questions:
1. For foreverguest: Can you make My Library show as Artist-Album?
2. For you all: Is changing of the target of a standard home menu button skin specific or xbmc general? Where do I find the code and how do I format the link to new target? If I add the library from google music to my favourites, I will be able to find the target formatting in favourites.xml.
@ 2) is skin specific. There are several skins out there that allow to customize the home menu though (like AeonNox, Eminence, and many more)
