This program will replace former Google MusicManager to upload your music library to Google Music

This work is based upon Simon Weber’s Google Music API.


Avconv is needed to convert some of your files due to Google’s MP3 constraint also, this program needs watchdog, gmusicapi, netifaces and bs4 Python libraries to work.

apt-get install python3-pip libav-tools build-essential
pip3 install google-music-manager-uploader

Once installed, You have to authenticate to Google Music via the google-music-auth command

# Usage google-music-auth [path_to_oauth_cred_file=~/oauth]

If first parameter is not defined, the script will try to store/load your oauth credentials through the ~/oauth file.

Then follow prompted instructions.

You will be asked to go to a Google URL to allow the connection:

Visit the following url:
Follow the prompts, then paste the auth code here and hit enter:



This program will scan a given directory for new elements to upload them to Google Music. First, launch the daemon to watch a directory new inputs.

It will NOT upload already existing files, ONLY new files while the daemon is running. (Please contribute if you want this to change)
