Can't get it to work and too many alternatives to waste my time with this one
By , for WP 3.9.2

I got the same generic catch-all error message others are getting:

"You've reached the bandwidth limit for viewing or downloading files that aren't in Google Docs format. Please try again later."

I can view the documents outside this plugin fine. So, the message in the error is not the real problem, nor helpful for troubleshooting.

I noticed a huge list of alternatives. Thus, it doesn't make sense to tinker around with trying to get a buggy-one to work.

Awesome
By , for WP 3.9.1

Me encanta que utilice el visor de google, aunque es una pena que no muestre directamente desde drive, pero para eso basta con abrir una pagina externa y a mi me basta con poder integrar algunos archivos que tenga en la web. Se queda entre mis favoritos porque funciona muy bien con "Collapse-O-Matic" y mi pluging de tabs.

GDE Bandwidth Problems
By , for WP 3.9.1

Getting an error when trying to embed a pdf:

"You've reached the bandwidth limit for viewing or downloading files that aren't in Google Docs format..."

Not sure why... It says files around 8MB to 12MB aren't supported, but this file is only 68KB. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Should I take the pdf and recreate it in Google docs, or is there something I else I can do to allow the pdf to show regardless of the bandwidth limit?

Thanks,
Derek

Very good product but very poor 3rd party dependency
By ,

GDE is the best product in its class. However it depends on Google API which is poor and does not work usually :-( It would be great if author of this product can give some alternative how to avoid Google errors...
