Google Music addon for XBMC

Usage and notes

This plugin is a very early release and uses an Unofficial-Google-Music-Api so use at your own risk.

This plugin has been tested with XBMC 11.0 Eden on Linux running Python 2.7.3


To install this add-on you must download it from the Downloads page and install it using the Add-on Manager from within XBMC by going to:

  1. Settings
  2. Add-ons
  3. Install from zip file
  4. Enter the path to the downloaded file and select OK
  5. Open the add-on settings dialog to set your credentials

That's it. You should now be able to run the plugin and enjoy your Google Music from XBMC.


At the moment it only supports playback of your Google Music songs into XBMC.

Known issues


This add-on has a transitive dependency on script.module.protobuf which requires that setuptools is installed on your system. However, if you don't have setuptools installed on your system you can still use this plugin by replacing the code in addons/script.module.protobuf/lib/google/ from this:


into this:

except ImportError:
    __path__ = __import__('pkgutil').extend_path(__path__, __name__)

Expired cookies

In order to avoid logging in to Google Music every time a request to the Google Music Api is being made, this add-on stores the user session in a cookie file: gmusic_cookies.txt which is used for all the subsequent requests. Since no checks are being made to verify that the cookie file is still valid, when the cookies in this file expire the Api calls will start failing and this add-on will stop working. When this happens you will have to open the add-on settings dialog, go to the Advanced tab and select "Clear cookies".

Hopefully this will be fixed in the next release so this should be just a temporary problem.
