Google Drive problem

Skip to the bottom

  • @philkmills  Feb 7

    Now and then this month, I've tried to listen to a song hosted on Google Drive. It always fails. When I click the link, a new page loads for the song and shows me audio controls. Clicking the "play" icon changes it to a "pause/stop" icon and nothing else happens...no sound, and the playback bar doesn't move.

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    (Mac computer with Safari browser; no problems with other forms of hosted songs.)

    I can't speak to this specific problem, but do you have another browser? I find that there are times when Safari doesn't play well with others. 😀 Try Chrome, maybe?

    I have the same problem, but with Chrome.

    Got an example you can show us?

    @whispermouse I've had it happen with more than one, but this is the most recent I've encountered: https://fawm.org/songs/102505/

    @eringoblog Thanks. Seems it *does* play in Firefox okay, which surprises me because Firefox had previously been failing on a variety of things for months.

    (Standards? Yes, we have hundreds of them, in infinite variation.)
