I have a very large folder of music in Google Drive and I wanted to hear some things from it, unfortunately when I play audio files from the file explorer in CloudReady an audio player comes up but nothing happens.
I'm not sure what exactly the problem is?
Am I just impatient and if I was waiting a little longer the audio file would start playing?
Maybe it's related to the limitations of CloudReady vs. ChromeOS?
What I know for sure is that when I play an audio file I want to hear it do not wait forever to charge the streaming (if it ever happens).
The first solution I thought of was to copy my music folder from Drive to the download folder (which is actually my hard disk) and then I would not have to wait forever for the streaming that does not occur.
But as a result I will need to manage 2 music folders because I am interesting to keep a full backup in Google Drive, so this solution is inefficient .
The second and more successful solution: I've found a Google Chrome app called Music Player for Google Drive (yes I know not a very original name).
The application is actually a web page and it's very simple, there's a button that lets you load files forme Google Drive and you can choose whether to load an entire folder or select individual files to build a playlist.
And it just works, the player itself simply there is a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a back and forward button and finally a button to play in random order.
This solution works for me, waiting time between loading a file until the moment you start to hear the music is seconds so I really recommend this solution.
