[REL] Google Music Channel


#1

I am releasing a Google Music channel that should work for all Plex clients. I forked the current channel created by the user Maik and added a bunch of new features. If anyone has any issues please post your log files and I will be happy to take a look. Also, if you have any request for new features please let me know. I will be sending out a request to get this added to the Unsupported Appstore as well.

 

If you are running into any issues please post your log files. I won't be able to help you without them.

I will take a look at Genres. It could be that will only work for All Access. If that's the case I will see if its possible to only show options for the type of account you have.

Either way, thanks again man. Surprised this hasn't been created before.

Ok. I think I know what's going on. It will take me some time to fix though. Thanks for letting me know.

I just got it added to the Unsupported Appstore on Saturday, so it might take some time for folks to find it.


#16

why don't you release it to the official AppStore? It's great. Thank you!


#17

I just updated the channel with a few things worth mentioning. First, I added a "I'm feeling lucky" radio station. This should work for both free and All Access accounts. I also did some testing with a free account and fixed a few bugs, namely with songs not playing correctly. I also hid Genres and Search from users who have free accounts. Those options only work for All Access members. If any one has any issues please let me know.


#18

jw totally has my blessing here. I just don't have the time to dedicate to the project and I wish him the best.

When I try to install on OSX PMS I got a criticial failure. (log file attached).
 
Do you have any suggestions?
 
Thanks, keep up the great work.

Update, i was able to fix this exception by downloading the python 2.7 src any copying lib/distutils into the Libraries/Shared/ directory of the bundle

I'm going to add disutils to the project so that others won't have to do this in the future. I'm not entirely sure why this didn't happen for me. I'm wondering if its because you are on a Mac and I am on Windows.
