[REQUEST] Pandora Radio script or plugin addon for XBMC? - Woggle - 2006-01-05 20:28
i've recently come across pandora (http://www.pandora.com) as i expect many of you have as well. excellent idea and i'm loving it.......except that i haven't got any integration with xbmc.
does anyone know if this is planned/already something out there/is possible to write a python script for.

i'm going to have to bump this up...
the news today about the slimdevices squeezebox getting pandora support sparked my interest. i was thinking i'd want to buy one... but hey, the xbox can do it probably!
so, what does this entail? anyone interested?

it was a closed system until very recently, but they've now added rss feeds, which opens it up to some form of script?
the simplest would be a flexibrowser or ooba plugin.
still no stream url access thou...

the rss feeds only contain info about what songs are most played etc i believe...nothing you can use to get songs playing on xbmc. i don't think it's possible with a script unless they open their system (i can't see how it's open already..hmm?)

yes, your post was too quick for my amendment after further reading.
- tehjr - 2006-02-10 16:23
well all we'd really need is to open it in a browser. i dont even care if i can make stations on the xbox, i can do that on my computer. but playing my made stations would be gold.
- BigBellyBilly - 2006-02-10 16:35
the 'playing' stream is the important bit we dont have access too, so all a script can provide is information from the rss.
you could always drop a mail to their devs requesting it , but i suspect they've heard it before and wouldve done it by now.

i've never tried any of the xbox browsers, what kind of support do they offer? it's just mp3s that cache when the song is playing
