Troubleshooting

  • Safari doesn't play well with Google Drive. We recommend the use of the Chrome browser to avoid running into conflicts.

  • Dropbox and Google Drive accounts have data transfer limits. If for some reason your Team Songs stop playing, you may want to investigate if you have hit your monthly max monthly limits.

  • If an MP3 file is not working, it may not be properly encoded, and thus incompatible. You can double-check this by testing in your browser through the Dropbox/Drive's app player.
