    I steam all sorts of music using M2P including from a NAS, however, I’m in a few bands and they all use google drive share music. I’m sure others have music (.mp3, .flac) files on google drive also. It’s a massive pain for me to keep moving files around all the time so what would be amazing would be if I could use google drive as a source; EASILY. What I’m suggesting is adding the ability to connect to drive in Max2Play using the google API. Something like this: https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v2/install

    There is a program called rclone https://rclone.org/ that uses this or a similar method. I tried to use it to ‚mount‘ my google drive to my raspberry pi, but had some issues I’m still working out. The access part worked easily though. I just clicked a button, was redirected to google, granted permission, copied the certificate and pasted it in rclone. Immediate access to google drive.

    My request is that you investigate adding similar functionality to Max2Play. Here’s how it would work. User goes to the Filesystem Mount tab and on that tab is a link to „Allow Max2Play to access Google Drive“ Once the user clicks that, they start the 2 factor authentication process, get the certificate, add the certificate to Max2Play and then Max2Play shows the mountpoint in LMS. Just like the current ability to mount things like NAS in Max2Play now. Does that make sense?

    Hi wmupchurch,

    Thank you for detailing your request and sharing it here.

    We will evaluate its possible merits and the logistic feasibility in the future.
