    I agree once is enough if someone does not trust it good for them don't keep repeating it. Meanwhile I love this webplayer it has some bugs but it still blows away iTunes. Maybe I can uninstall iTunes which I hate more.

    But this third-party website doesn't receive the credentials.

    This uses Apple's APIs. They literally created this so third parties like Musish can launch.

    Also another reason why I hate iTunes. I found this out on my SSD was able to create an symbolic link to move it to the non SSD drive otherwise stupid iTunes would have been wearing out my SSD. 2019-01-21_153148.jpg
    Also you have to manual delete those junk files too. I once had nearly 10GB worth.

    Would love to have a look. It just hangs on "loading". Also, the authentication window opens in a non-viewable format (entry box is huge, cannot resize or re-position to fix the problem). I resolved that by copying the link and then opening a new full-size window and going from there.

    However, as mentioned, it then hangs on "loading".

    I can't login, every time I enter my account details, I only get to a white page
    (the login is ok, get redirected to apple login and 2factor identification, but the login won't be processed)

    I wonder if this webplayer works with Chromebooks and Linux?

    Nice concept. Hope this app doesn't get pulled from the store bc it violates Apple's terms of service...

    Well https://playapplemusic.com/ still works and everyone said that will be pulled in a few days.
    Also this webplayer does not violate any Apple Music name in the URL.

    Overall it seems to work well. Kudos!

    I see two problems so far. My wife, kids, and I collectively have 37 playlists, and only 17 are loading. I can't see a pattern, except that my favorite playlists are not there. Most of my wife's and kids' are there.

    Also, it's very minor, but the french "œ" ligature is incorrectly alphabetized as coming after "z". In other words, "Cœur de pirate" shows as the last artist beginning with "C". Apple correctly alphabetizes "œ" as "oe".

    I just tried it under Ubuntu 18 / Firefox and while I was able to login, I couldn't get anything to play. Gave up after a few minutes without trying any fixes, so... who knows? Seems busted under Linux at this point.

    You may have to install AAC support in Ubuntu?

    (edit) I just tried it in Firefox on macOS; works fine. Try installing ubuntu-restricted-extras.

    I'm sorry, but you're just wrong. Repeating the same falsehood doesn't make it correct. The developer does not gain access to your credentials in any way. The way federated logins work is the developer directs you to a website provided by the company (in this case, Apple), which then returns with a randomly generated token, which can't be guessed. This token can be used to access your Apple Music profile, but stops being usable the moment you log out. There is very little risk here, because Apple tightly controls what people can and cannot do with that token. If any abuse occurs, Apple can easily block all access to the API from that website.

    Now that would be something special. If you try it and are successful please share in the forum. I’d like to hear about that.

    Does the Chrome browser work on Linux? I use Chrome manly just for media playback since the fonts are not as clear. Firefox sometimes has issues with media so I use Firefox primary for web browsing.

    That did it. Confirmed running in Ubuntu 18 / Firefox.

    It's not about the browser (unless it ships with its own codecs); it's that Ubuntu doesn't ship an audio codec by default for licensing reasons.

    Would you like to store your online banking passwords in my super-secure open source online password manager? I promise I didn't modify it one bit.

    But in all seriousness, if you're submitting your credentials to an Apple URI through an Apple login page and they go anywhere but to Apple then it's basically a browser bug.

    They should hire these people and have them rewrite iTunes.

    Apple's going to sue and or buy out this idea. Only to make it available at the next conference as a new feature of Mac OS 10.13.

    Just give me the old iTunes, don't need the social junk, just a good old music player.

    This is literally using Apple-provided APIs.

    I've noticed that this site- musi.sh and playapplemusic.com have the same problem in that they don't play tracks uploaded to iCloud Music Library that aren't matched.

    For example, I have the original Slipknot album 870621345, not the rerelease titled "Slipknot" and not the 10th anniversary rerelease, and those tracks won't play.

    So far all the content I checked like that won't play. But still cool.
    Just to add, those tracks play fine on my phone, ipad etc
