    Use shared Google Drive folder as music library in LMS?

    Hello
    Is it possible to share a folder on Google Drive as a music library for remote playing with LMS?
    Or do I need to make an IP address (QNAP) for access or is only local (LAN) access possible?

    Not directly as you can't mount a Google Drive - there is software that claims to do it but it doesn't work very well.
    However if you have a qnap there is a tool that will sync your Google Drive to it, you can then connect your LMS to the synced drive on the qnap.

    Even if it worked: performance would most likely be awful. During a scan
    LMS accesses every single file to read the metadata. If that file was
    hosted online, this would take forever.
