Install Nuvola Player 2.0.4 in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring/Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise/Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric/11.04 Natty/10.10 Maverick/Linux Mint 15/14/13/12/11/10/and other Ubuntu derivatives

Nuvola Player runs a web interface of cloud music services in its own window and provides integration with a Linux desktop (multimedia keys, system tray, media player applets, dock menu, notifications and more).Nuvola Player is an open-source project licensed under GNU GPL 3 and written mainly in Vala (the core) and JavaScript (service integrations).

What's in this release:
  • Google Play: Google Play web interface has been changed many times introducing breakages in Hide Google bar feature, parsing of song details, playback status and available actions.
  • Google Play: Google Play UI has changed and shows also album name of the current song, so it's possible to pass it to Nuvola core.
  • Google Play: Flash plugin has been enabled, because Google Play Music All Access feature requires it (HTML5 audio is not supported).
  • Google Play: Also added reason why all store links are opened in a default web browser.
  • 8tracks: updated metadata parsing.
  • PopupWebView: Pop-up windows were sometimes unusable, because page area was tiny and rest of the window was empty.
  • Run-in-background feature no longer requires tray icon.
  • MPRIS can-go-next/prev actions weren't updated because of a bug.
  • Updated translations.

Some issues:
  • Google Play Music fails to play songs (Google Play is having trouble reaching the server to play your music, "Fix: make sure you have installed a MP3 decoder for GStreamer media framework")
  • Grooveshark: You're all out of focus! (You're all out of focus! Zooming in or out may cause problems viewing the site.)
  • Some services fail to detect Flash plugin (You have to install a Flash plugin)
  • No integration with Ubuntu Unity (Many features were rewritten as extensions, you have to enable them in Preferences dialog.)
