Hello everyone! here I am with a really strange question:
can I enable youtube music mode without the tray icon?
Darryl Wright
@eyesno
Hey there, I am probably late to the party on this one but I came back to GPMDP after a while away and suddenly Google Music was gone and replaced with YouTube music. Is this a setting I missed somewhere that I can disable?
How do I got back to Google Music?

Right click the trail icon and select Google Music

GPMDP hasn't gotten past the loading spinner for the past 3-4 months when I open it. I'm on OSX 10.14.5 using GPMDP 4.6.1. Any tips? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times with rebooting etc.

@poorpaddy unfortunately i have the same issue. i restarted my machine and got past the loading screen, but now it's just a completely empty window. checked debugging logs and nothing

@stanhopec that has occurred to me a couple times but mainly it just gets stuck with a spinning circle. I wonder if it is because of some sort of auth or something. How would one completely wipe cache or settings from it? After I reinstall it, it appears to just bypass any config.

Guess I'll just have to go back to using Chrome.

I'm having a lot of difficulty finding how to play to my chromecast, where about is the option located? Not sure if the program just isn't seeing the chromecast. I have casted from my PC before.

@ClickSentinel
@calum-ball I don't believe casting is supported in GPMDP. I have also looked for a cast option in the past.
Calum Ball
@calum-ball
Previous update logs have noted that they added support for scrolling through cast targets just in case you have more than 12, also.

@calum-ball big sad. I'd love to cast to my home devices. on windows I could never see it.

Hey @stanhopec @ClickSentinel @calum-ball Casting is implemented differently on every platform, but on windows it requires port 5353 to be open for GPMDP on your lan, in order for the mDNS resolver to find your cast devices and receive their responses. I believe you only need UDP opened
There was a installer feature I believe that tried to auto open that port, but not sure of its current status
As far as the spinning wheel where nothing works, you probably have some kind of error but the application isn't smart enough to fix it. Removing your install folder manually should fix it. @poorpaddy @stanhopec
Generally speaking on windows you can check %localappdata and %appdata% and remove the folder manually (which is c:\users\yourusername\appdata\Local\ and \Roaming) then GPMDP_3 and "Google Play Music Desktop Player" folders

Has anyone already requested the ability to store the current state (playlist and position in it) so it can be resumed after a PC restart? Is there some reason the app has to lose this info when it shuts down? I wasn't sure where else I could request this functionality, so I'm sorry if this is not the right forum.
Jesse Ostrander
@jostrander
I'm not sure that's entirely possible
That state isn't stored anywhere we have access to it. I think the URL does hold the location, so if the page was the playlist you were on then it would reload that on startup, but otherwise Google would need to implement that feature

Hmmm. My phone remembers where it was when I close the music app. I wonder if it is stored/identified with a cookie or something. I guess I'll see if I can find any info. Thanks for the explanation. @jostrander
Jesse Ostrander
@jostrander
I don't think Google does a good job of saving state to the server of where you are in the playlist, and the browser doesn't save much locally, unlike the mobile app

Just a quick question about the app... am I able to add my music through the desktop app or will I need to use the web version?

How can I get the Youtube Music version?
Jesse Ostrander
@jostrander
@RianWebster You need to use the web app
@FNdolphin_twitter there is a switcher in the tray icon menu.

Hi! When I open the app, it stops at the "Loading Music Library" screen with the bar not filling up. Its been doing this for a few days. I am on the latest MacOS. Anyone got a fix?

Hi, I couldn't find any documentation or in-app help about how to switch to the mini player. Is there a hotkey for switching between regular and mini?
Jacques van der Merwe
@wjvander
So I had to switch back to Google Music first, show mini player, then switch to Youtube player again and it stays a mini player. There seems to be no "Show mini player" button on the Youtube service yet

Recently switched to Google Music from spotify, came across this project, and already found a minor issue I might be able to put in a PR for, but I'm hoping someone here might be able to help point me in the right direction.

anyone recognize that tooltip from Windows 10 and know what microsoft calls it? It doesn't display song info correctly with this program and that's what I'm trying to fix, but I can't find any dev documentation on it or what it's even called
Chris Olin
@realchrisolin_gitlab
nevermind, I found the relevant settings option

Hi All. This is not really related to the desktop player, but I thought maybe someone here would have insight...
Has Google completely removed the ability to export a playlist to a text file? I was pretty sure I was able to do this once, but I cannot find any way to do it in the UI now. I just want a list of artists/songs.

Hello, everyone! I have a trouble getting response from gpmdp at ws://localhost:5672
When I send a post request with any body, postman says it couldn't get any response.
When I switch to a http:// the response is 426 upgrade required. What am I doing wrong? Screenshots below
