music sites will not play



  • Geofrey Hill

    Do you have "Proprietary Media Components" installed?

    Jay - Are you using a 32bit image of CloudReady?

  • Jay Garn

    No, 64 bit.

    Sorry - I'm not sure what's wrong then. Other 64bit CloudReady devices with all plugins installed play spotify just fine.

    Try the following:

    • Log in as a guest and see if that works
    • Reinstall and see if it works on a fresh insall (after installing plugins and rebooting)
    • Update to our dev channel to see if v69.1 fixes the problem

    I am using CloudReady on live usb on a Dell Inspiron 3541 laptop.  AMD A6 with 8GB ram and 1 TB hard drive.  I have three browsers installed  - Chrome, Firefox and Opera - and using Windows 10 on internal hard drive. will not play on Chrome but will on Firefox and Opera.  Perhaps there is a connection there.

    I've been considering getting a Chromebook but it must play my music sites and I was using CloudReady as my reference for what my experience with a Chromebook will be.  Perhaps there is something peculiar about the laptop that is the problem.  The Chrome browser is up to date.

    I'm also experiencing problems due to the disappearance of Media Plugins. Unable to use Netflix or Spotify. Fresh install this weekend.

    Using 68.4.74 (Developer Build - neverware) developer-build chromeover54

    UPDATE: I returned to my PC after a couple of hours to find that the Media Plugins were now available. Weird. Installing a rebooting solved the issue.
