Google music desktop Player
Run Google Play Music as a stand alone Windows Desktop app. Never again will you have to hunt through your tabs to pause your music, or stop listening to your favourite song because Chrome is guzzling up all your RAM..
No affiliation with Google. Google Play is a trademark of Google Inc.
Using Flash Player is not my choice and this app is in no way based on flash. However flash is required to play the music because Google's support for HTML5 Audio relies on the MP3 codec and some third party DRM library. Both of which require licenses and can't be open sourced. So until Google figures out an open source solution to the DRM media problem, we are stuck with Flash.
- Supports media keys (play, pause, next, previous)
- Desktop notifications on track change
- A simplistic mini player
- Dark theme
- Task bar media controls (media controls embedded into the taskbar)
- Smooth scrolling and overlay scrollbars for a nicer User Experience
- More coming soon.
To get started just pull the repo and open Google Play Music.sln in Visual Studio, pull down all the NuGet dependencies and it should just work.
If you find something wrong (theming issues, app crashes) please report them as an issue.
If you think you can add something cool or fix a problem, fork the repo and make a pull request :D
