If you are running this app on a virtualbox VM, you may likely receive the following error when trying to login
login failed could not identify your computer
From investigation, it appears Google does not support running Google Play Music Manager on a virtual machine. What happenns is Google Music Manager checks your machine MAC address on your NIC and tries to determine what type of computer you’re running. So since this is on a VM, it then that explains the error.
So to get work around this lockdown, you will need to tell the VM to use a real MAC address.
- First go here and generate a new mac address
- Open up your VirtualBox > Select the OS > Click on the Settings button
- Go to Network > Click on Advanced to expand it
- Copy one of the newly generated mac address and replace one in the Mac Address box.
Note you might have to try the different addresses generated incase the system does not accept the one copied
- Save and restart your VM
