    I've never played with Pandora sadly as I'm in the UK.. but that doesn't mean I can't do something with it. I'm assuming it's a music streamer and you need internet connection to use it? As Windows media player accepts streams then I dont think it will be a problem at all... When it's released it might be worth adding a html / htm / lnk or type of url into a folder.. and then loading it into the audio browser and see what happens.

    Let me get it released first and we will have a go.

    I did a little comparison last night when I loaded up FreeICE v1.92 on my laptop at home.. FreeICE 2 seems a lot faster to be honest :-) more smooth and less jerky. My laptops a SU1300 1.3 Dell thingy so I'm quite happy about that. I also took the plunge and bought a miniitx board and cpu off eBay.. Gigabyte board with a intel i5 650 chip (105 all in).. it's going to be faster than all my pc's put together.. lol Just need to get a case / screen / psu now then I'm in business

    Yes, Pandora is just a Internet radio. You go to "pandora.com" make an account and a station and start listening to music. I do not think Windows Media Player excepts streams but if it did I'm pretty sure it wouldn't with pandora. I'm sure you could basically make an app that goes onto their website and just skin over the top of it. I think I remember seeing a app for centrafuse that does that (I think). Pandora is flashed based so I don't think it would be too hard for you.

We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.

    So, CDR would need to use a proxy to get around this to test it.

    yep proxy would be needed.. not a problem :-) I will have a play once I get something released.

    One step closer.... Audio browser nearly done now :-)



    Added icons and fixed a couple of bugs I had stuck in from bad coding.. all working as it should now. I've also added loading the first jpg it finds at the album cover, just the tag reading left now.. quick tidy up and release time

    more to come...

    Well that really stinks. They must have done that when they almost went under a few years back.
