_IECreateEmbedded and Inconsistent Failures on Google Music

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Using an IECreateEmbedded object within a GUI, I can neither get Google Music to consistently work, nor consistently break.

Some of the time, it works exactly as expected. I can sign in, or if I have clicked "remember me" and not logged out, it will load directly into Google Music.

However, when I click play, randomly it will either (A) work or (B ) say "Oops, we have a technical issue. Please refresh this page in your browser to get back to listening to your music. If issues persist, make sure you have Flash enabled and working", with only a "Refresh Page" button option.

Once (B ) happens, it is nearly impossible to get it to work without exiting and restarting the AutoIT script, and then it goes back to a crapshoot between (A) and (B ).

I have verified this problem exists on Windows 7 x64, IE 8 and 9, as well as Windows XP IE 8.

Any suggestions as to troubleshooting? or does anyone know how to force Google Music to the HTML5 version that I believe iPads use with some nifty userAgent strings and AutoIT?

I do NOT encounter any issues with an _IECreate object, nor using IE outside of AutoIT, in any of those environments...

Resurrecting an old thread because it continues to irk me. AutoIT v3.3.8.1. Google Labs for Music allows you to set HTML 5 audio. I have that set. IE9. What gives? Same issues as documented above. Even tried to see if the embedded was reporting a version that Google thought was not HTML 5 compliant.

Was not able to really figure out a consistent reason for the problem, nor a fix.

Currently my workaround is to create a standalone _IECreate'd object, created a child GUI, and just poll the IE object window for size changes / moves and mirror those changes to the child GUI I attach to the bottom:
