Cloudplay Password Problem
« on: November 10, 2023, 11:32:29 pm »

Cloudplay from JRemote for IOS?
I would quite like this too, but only if the login "Remember me" option can properly stick. I don't use cloudplay because it will not 'remember me', and as my password is a 20+ character string of random letters, numbers and special characters, it's all just too much hassle.

Cloudplay on a PC?  I've never seen that.

One thing i noticed is that CloudPlay only supports one logged in session. So if you login from two different locations, it'll log out the first one.

Strange...I can have two Cloudplay sessions open at the same time, one on my Linux system and another on my Windows 11 laptop with no problems.

I have noticed one quirk with Cloudplay, if I run Cloudplay from a MC client and download a playlist, the playlist is created OK on the client and the playlist also appears on the server but is empty of all tracks. If I then sync the client to the server the playlist remains on the client but all the tracks disappear so I'm left with an empty playlist. The client is authenticated to the server with full read write access.

I've never had an issue with any of my Linux or Window systems 'forgetting' my Cloudplay credentials.

How often do you go into Cloudplay?

I can't be sure, but I think the cookie(s?) used to do the remembering expire after some time, forcing re-entry of credentials. I understand this, but, as a simple user, I also expect that when I tick that box, I should be remembered, even if a year passes between sessions :)

Can be quite a gap of several months, especially on my HTPC system. The only time I have to login is after the annual major update.

Windows 10 64bit, and Edge browser in MC for me.

I've just logged in now for the first time in years. I'll try and have a play over the weekend. Maybe the login remembrance has changed since the last time...

Didn't there used to be a section where saved views could be downloaded?
In the 'customise view' tool, when you choose 'Save View' there's the option to 'also save to shared views server' ....

Found them, under Settings... fairynuff, now I know where they are :)

I'll keep an eye on this and report if my credentials get asked for again...
