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.
