Logging in to "Google Play" does not show audio files - only apps, movies & tv, etc.

When I log in to "Google Play Music", I get "Google play music no longer available". I then click manage your data, the I click "download your music library", I select "Google Play Music" because that is where my playlists are located. It takes me to: choose file type & it only offers .zip or .tgz

What am I doing wrong?

As to last question about not gettin a usable format - is it because I already transferred my music playlists from Google Play to Youtube???

Both .zip and .tgz are "compressed" file types.

Typically done to archive old files.

READ HERE

Unless you have a MAC, go with .zip since Win7 and up can natively open those.

Once downloaded you should be able to expand the files and hopefully your lists are in there.

Spotify allows the user to import "local files" into its library and playlists. You can log into a Spotify account across many platforms (iOS, Android, Windows, MacOs).

Spotify is more like a virus..

But, in order to be able to import anything, in this case, one would have to download the library and playlists THEN "unzip" or expand the compressed file ending in zip or tgz.

There is an Android version of VLC aka Video Lan Player


THANK YOU.. I've use VLC on my Windows boxes for a long time. (It is one of the few players compatible with my DVRs)

And I found out a few days late you can Still DOWNLOAD You Tube Videos (used you had that option in the menus but YT got rid of that) and VLC is one step in the process (it is a process and no I won't go into the whole thing cause thogh I tried it... Just for kicks... I downloaded what is really and add

What I did not download (Wish I had) is a fantastic 2 hour Musical (Jeff Wayne's War of the Wrolds) But then The Music is the more important part (The video is nice but it's really the MUSIC that grabs me) and I have the CD's so.. Bought and paid for CD's.

And folks.. That is one amazing set of music. You can find chunks on You Tube (not the full 2 hour show but one or two piece segments like Forever Autumn/Thunder Child) Give 'em a listen then go visit the CD Sore.. You will need a top end CD store.. Not many carry it.

How many? Detroit is not just the Motor City. it's also a Music City. and one store, in all of Detroit ONE STORE (Harmony House main store) had it. Just the MAIN store (Which is not in Detroit)


Home is where I park it.
