Listening to Pandora Radio

April 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Problem
You wanna listen to Pandora Radio outside of the US.

Solution
Well, I already have a proxy explorer script that finds working US proxies. You can choose one and update the proxy info in the FoxyProxy Firefox add-on.

However, updating the proxy info manually is tiring. So I made another script that updates the config file of FoxyProxy (here is my foxyproxy.xml). In order to force FoxyProxy to see the new settings, you’ll have to restart the browser.

The script is available here: pandora.py.

Proxy Explorer

Problem
You need a list of working US proxies for listening to Pandora Radio.

Solution
What you need is jabbapylib’s proxy explorer script.

Example

$ ./proxies.py
# extracting list..............................done.
Working US proxies:
(1) {'ip': u'209.239.112.78:8080', 'type': u'Transparent', 'avg_time': 133.46, 'country': u'United States'}
(2) {'ip': u'173.236.204.117:8080', 'type': u'Transparent', 'avg_time': 186.14, 'country': u'United States'}
__END__

The list of proxies changes minute by minute, so don’t use these IP addresses, they must be outdated by now.

FoxyProxy, proxy switcher for Firefox

February 23, 2012 1 comment

Problem
While browsing, you want to use a proxy server.

Solution
The FoxyProxy add-on allows you to switch proxies easily.

Useful Links

Use Case
Say you want to listen to Pandora Radio but when you visit their website you get a warning in your face: “You are not a US resident therefore you don’t exist. Go away!” What can you do? Install FoxyProxy, set up a US proxy, verify it on an arbitrary site to see if it works, then visit the Pandora website again. Problem solved.
