Cloud storage as a music source?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

PC as source noob alert...

Is anyone using a cloud network storage as a source for music files?

How do you sync your music/media player to the cloud network to stream the files?

Is there compression in doing so...  are lossless files truly lossless when they are played this way?

With Google Music, you can upload up to 20,000 songs. To play, you'd have to use the Google Music app that comes pretty standard on any Android phone/tablet. You'd first have to install the Google Music Media Manager to your computer and it'll do the uploading. Depending on how picky you are, you may have to add album art and correct some ID tags.

 

On the up side, the service does support ( read: recognize ) FLAC. On the down side, if you stream or redownload ( from the cloud storage ) a song to your device's local storage, it'll only be 320 MP3.
