Updated and fixed playback issues, head to github.com/vhanla/GMusicDeskto… and replace with the new release.

Agreed !!!  You must fix this issue with Flash Player. You could make a Wrapper of Chrome within your app so the Flash Player will be solved !!!

Nobody uses Flash anymore !!!!!!!!

I'll go ahead and confirm that this works with the current windows 10 insider preview (build 10074) :)

Hey, I was having an issue and wondered if you knew anything about it. My skip buttons work perfectly fine in this application but my play/pause does not work at all. Have you heard of this happening? Is there any good way to fix it if you have?
If not don't worry about it, I can't expect you to quash every bug on every hardware.
The program itself works great. Thanks for such a wonderful little player.

Sorry about the multiple comments. It seems my Chrome doesn't like Deviantart :)

I love the work you've put into this but I'm having a bit of an issue. I don't want to install flash player and since you disabled Labs menu I can't enable html5 audio... is there a workaround?

Found this from a reddit post. Seems pretty awesome so far! I was wondering if there was anyway to disable to dock's icons progress indicator? It is a little distracting for me.. I didn't see anything in the options.

One thing it needs to be added is to able to store google music locally so I can listen to it being offline just like it's app can do. As it is now it no different then using it on the web browser

The player is borked for me, it is incredibly slow to load, and will not play anything.

This works pretty well for me. The only thing that isn't working is cover art for the miniplayer. Is there a known bug with that? What can I do about it?
