ok yea its possible to sniff the connection and rip apart the current pandora player. but it wouldnt be legal since its not open source.

read the xbmc online-manual, faq and search the forums before posting! do not e-mail the xbmc-team asking for support!
read/follow the forum rules! note! team-xbmc never have and never will host or distribute ms-xdk binaries/executables!

wouldn't it just be easier to get flash to run in xbmc?

hence the fact its illegal to distribute the binarys, the code isnt illegal. however taking/stealing a program would be.

tehjr-im not sure that you would find that very easy at all. its hard enough porting a web browser to the xbox but finding an opensource flash plugin wouldnt be easy, and porting it even harder

hmm, well that is discouraging. i don't have any coding experience, i was really trying to spark some interest with someone who does code and likes pandora.


not all wishes come true but damn it would be cool

i don't understand what would be illegal in reusing public http requests executed against a public server accessible to anyone freely. the source code to do it (whether python script or built into xbmc), if it is doable at all, would be open source as well.

and it is not like the xbmc project (with out without distributed binaries) and the entire xbox modchip scene don't have a questionable legality anyway.

its more of how you come about these http requests. which are not public! hence the need to sniff or backward engineer the current player. i've had the same problem with legality and my craftytv script. and thatt didnt even have user authentication. which it does now.the best thing todo is to get permission before anything is attempted.

pandora is an online music site which will find similar titles to user input. you can check it out @ http://www.pandora.com/

it would be awesome if this could be integrated into xbmc, or a script could be created...its a sweet service

hi,

it's not possible atm because the site uses flash, which is not scriptable from xbmc...

by decompiling the player, it would at least be possible to make a pandora to mp3stream gateway that could run on your computer, and add that stream to xbmc

I'm in the UK and listen to it on my PC no problem. However obvioulsy a lot of other reasons beside that.

Ah well thanks for replying.
