Add streaming services

Post by Dan.B » Sat Jul 20, 2019 11:30 pm

I have subscriptions to Google Play Music and YouTube Music. Is there a way to play them via Music Station? I tried uploading the IP address in My Favorite Radio but no luck. I read the user manual and video instructions for Music Station but my question was not addressed.

play it on a dedicated streaming device ..that's your best bet

I don't know anything about coding, but I don't understand why this couldn't be added. I can play Google Music and YouTube Music on any computer with a Chrome browser but not on my NAS. TuneIn seems very similar to Google Play in that both are web pages.

Thanks dolbyman, I will make a request to add YouTube Music, since Google Play Music will eventually be discontinued. Also, QNAP supports YouTube via HDMI, so maybe the music streaming service won't be a foreign concept.

One more question. Are people able to play Spotify via Music Station?
