Awesome! I will be sure to play with this once I pull the trigger on Matrix (actually, I guess I should start playing with it on my test bed....)

yes, yes, yes.
just installed libreelec nightly with Kodi19 to get a first impression of this. Thanks for keeping my music alive on kodi.
Also made a little donation because hearing to my music on raspberry/kodi after so long time made me my day.

had to implement a little workaround on raspi/kodi before first start. link or rename resources/Lib folder to resources/lib. Case sensitive.

Would love to try this - but whilst I get what I need to get from Chrome, I don't know how to do anything from the:
'Using the headers in your project' onwards - can someone explain?

Is there another way to create the file for the cookie?

Hi, after you have the cookie and visitor-id strings, just create a text file like the template below and fill the strings:

{
    "Cookie": "xxxx",
    "X-Goog-Visitor-Id": "yyyy",
    "origin": "https://music.youtube.com"
}

Geez, I was pasting cookies instead of that cookie all night yesterday. Today I got it working in 5 minutes.
Thank you so much for this!
I have a question - is there a way to disable music videos from saved playlists and play only audio?

Not yet, I'll  add an option for it.

Thanks, so simple. I was complicating things.

Actually I get an error when I try to play from my uploads. Will post logs later.

Assuming down the line further functions (radio style playlists etc) would be added?
