    2. This version will still work if you download it, then click options->tools->extensions, check the box for developer's mode, then drag and drop the .crx file to install. Happy skipping =)

  5. I just wanted to know if this was safe to use with the computer that I do banking on? I thought it said something about accessing your web history not sure about passwords?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It won't touch your passwords. The accessing web history is pretty innocuous; it needs your web history for cookies, for example (in order to stay logged in)

      This may not be the best example, but I hope it explains it. Feel safe.

  6. Anesidora is one of my favorite Chrome extensions, BUT, you seem to be caught in a cat and mouse game with the Isadora developers, who keep making changes that break it. Anesidora 1.6.2 works with Chrome, but only for the first signon; invocations after ask for (but don't accept) the login/password and don't allow the available playlists to be accesed. My work-around is to uninstall/reinstall Anesidora whenever I want to use it.

  7. I can't get this to work. When I input my email address and password it gives me an exclamation point as if I input the wrong password, even though I double checked to make sure it was correct. I'm on Chrome 19.0.1084.52

  8. Awwwww the addon glitched and sent like 50 skips in 5 seconds and got me banned from pandora. (Probably temporary)

    1. This same thing happened to me. This extension is amazing, but the glitches that are regular make me doubt that it's worth it.

      Delete
  9. This addon should be temporarily removed until the skip problem can be fixed. It runs maximum skips on each station, which bans your account for 1 hour.

    ReplyDelete
  10. While I love the idea of Anesidora, a cat and mouse game seems to be going on between the Pandora and Anesidora developers. I just ran into the skip/lock problem: "There are no more songs to play on this station." This has occurred with Anesidora 1.6.2, 1.6.4, and 1.6.5.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Unknown, these issues are resolved in 1.6.6. The problem was actually Pandora having a bad server. Everything is resolved.

    ReplyDelete
  12. where do you download this update cause the link is to 1.6.2...

  13. It will auto update to the latest version. You can force it to update by going into manage extensions and clicking the update button.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just installed the app and it did the exact same thing others described above. Now I'm temporarily banned from all my Pandora stations.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Maren - Make sure you are running the latest version. It should have auto updated to version 1.6.6

    ReplyDelete
  16. 1.6.6 works beautifully on Chrome/Debian-Squeeze ...NICE WORK!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Okay, so 1.6.6 does work (I wish I had read all the comments before using 1.6.2). So now my pandora account is "frozen". How long does it take for it to reset and let me listen to music again?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Joseph Owen about an hour is what most people say. I normally have it working again with in 15 minutes.

  21. You guys can still find pandora enhancer (should you want to use that as well) at cbcoding.com , their official site.

    Anyone know where i can download lazy pandora ?

    Also...
    Does anyone know if the older versions of pandora plus combined with lazy pandora and youtube downloader will still allow for song/album download ?

    All thoughts welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Is there any way to contribute to this project? I'd like to create a "stop streaming" schedule so that it doesn't stream all night while I'm away from my computer.

    (Even though I use this, I do have a soft spot for Pandora's streaming costs. I just like the fact that I don't have to keep a tab open/don't have to keep clicking the "I'm still here" button all day long)

  26. Anyone else having the problem where it plays but freezes up for about 3 seconds a few times during each song?

    ReplyDelete
  27. same here, i cant turn up my volume slider as well.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 1.6.8.1 is the version that has the pauses for me.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 1.6.8.1 is WORKING 100% For me, no pauses, unlimited skips are working fine, volume slider works fine, it does not glitch/freeze or hang up. Everything is fluent and easy. Running on Google Chrome Version 21.0.1180.89 m

  30. I'm getting a message from chrome saying "Extensions, apps, and user scripts can only be added from the Chrome Web Store." HELP PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Never mind I figured it out. If anyone else has the problem, all you have to do is go to your file explorer and drag the actual file into the extensions screen in chrome.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Can't choose a station, I just re-installed Chrome v21.0.1180.89 m on windows 7, was able to install and log in, my stations show up but nothing happens when I click on one.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Working now, not sure what I did, maybe a browser restart.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haven't used it in a long time as got tired of it breaking. Download the latest, was excited to see it started to play songs, but it appears to be super buggy. There's an unlabeled checkbox in the corner of the album art. The [...] does nothing. I don't see a way to bookmark the song. I'd gladly donate to get a reliable version.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Plays about 2 songs now, then stops? Anyone else having this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  36. @MarkevMarketing. I'm having the same problem. It stops after an undetermined amount of songs and if I simply hit play again, it just goes to play the last song that played over again so the only way to get it to continue is to hit skip.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great forum over at (anesidora dot us)with a fix!! Go to Bugs and Troubleshooting > next song not loading

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm having the same problem described above. I hope it gets fixed soon!

    ReplyDelete

  41. Anyone having problems downloading the file?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Heres a link http://sigalonwebapps.soup.io/tag/radio

    open downloaded file location, click and drag file to extensions tab to avoid chrome telling you u cant use it

    ReplyDelete
  43. wait sorry dont use that link its an old version

    ReplyDelete
  44. 1.6.8.1 everything seems to work EXCEPT unfortunately ability to bookmark song/album. Clicking checkmark box expands window to show nothing. [...] button doesn't do anything except close expanded windows. Boo. I will donate if someone wants to maintain this to where it works.

    It's a joke Pandora and Google make a marketing deal to put Pandora as an App in the Google Chrome Store and they are highlighting it on the homepage and all it does is add a bookmark to Pandora website. PATHETIC.

    By the way, to install this, you need to start chrome with --enable-easy-off-store-extension-install option. I could not find a way to add that to the shortcut in Windows 8 so I had to run chrome.exe from command line with that switch.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Anybody else having the problem of it stopping after every 2-3 songs, then repeating the previous song? Does this on both CentOS and Windows7.

    ReplyDelete
  46. If you want to automatically download songs as they play and add them to your iTunes, iRadio Capture is what you need. You can find it here: https://sites.google.com/site/aprogrammerscrucible/projects/iradio-capture

  47. The player seems to stop after playing 3 songs. Will there be an update to correct this?

  49. I'm having trouble with the player not showing any song or playlist most of the times,
    and each time I restart the browser it seems to log out of my account –these two problems may be connected.
    Also at times when it does show songs it just skips through them without playing, after which it reaches the warning about a problem with Anesidora that sorta self destructs in order to avoid problems with the locking of the Pandora account.
    I't worked fine the first day I used it, not anymore :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think anesidora is dead. Anesidora.us is down and it seems like the project is gone. Mine functions for the most part with some GUI errors but I'm happy it still at least plays.

    1. well, try this then

      works perfect for me and I've tried plenty.

    2. I just started using this and it's a seemingly good extension but one of the great things about anesidora is that it skipped all commercials.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I don't really know why I don't have them anymore when using this one (soundcontrol) but I'm not complaining, and if it ain't broke don't fix it.
      It can't be the AdBlock, but may have something to do with the ProxMate extension here:

      –I'm using it to access pandora since I'm outside the US.

  52. It works. I do have a few bug fixes that were never released before the main Dev went missing again. Maybe next week I'll package it up and post it here.

  53. For those having issues installing the extension, add this to your shortcut properties for chrome chrome.exe --enable-easy-off-store-extension-install

    ReplyDelete
  54. It looks like the extension has stopped streaming sometime in the past few days. Stations load fine and even the first song title shows, but not music. Probably just another Pandora API change.

    ReplyDelete
  55. buttons sometimes need to be clicked twice, otherwise nothing happens. As a result, if a song skip button is pressed and nothing happens and you click it the second time, it skips two or three songs immediately - I don't want this to happen.

    Also, if one creates a shortcut for play/pause and than deletes it with "backspace" button, it gets deleted in settings visually, however, a new button is set: "backspace" which is not visible in the field. Anesidora was stopping and going all the time - it took me a while to figure out, where the bug was.

    Also, after playing one or two songs and not visiting the extension - it stops playing. Instead of having last played interpret and song there, only a "-" char is displayed with no picture.

    Along with this problem, songs are not in the "..." button displayed all, recently I only have the first four played and nothing adds then.

  57. I'm sorry that I have not uploaded my latest version. My personal life has been too demanding of me the last few months. I'm glad to see that someone has picked up the source and started trying to maintain it. I'll try and make time this weekend to upload my latest version. I have a lot of the fixes that people have complained about. I still use Anesidora daily and my version works almost perfectly.

    1. Will you be able to upload your code to the new GitHub repository?

    2. Awesome!
      I contacted the main Dev about all this and he's totally OK with sharing Anesidora project. I even managed to get the .pem-file from him in order to have the same ID when you pack the extension.

      Delete
    3. dear demotis,
      you have updated and regularly maintained anesidora longer and better than altman EVER did. even after he "came back" to anesidora and "took over" development again you still took care of it more than him and now hes gone again. thank you for keeping this alive. in my humble opinion anesidora is far more your extension than it is robert's.

      Delete
    4. That makes me feel bad for not updating with my current fixes. I'm sorry I have not released what I have. I'll do my best to try and make time to get the source updated on the GitHub and create a new Chome Package very soon.

      Delete
    5. I agree with Matt entirely. Thank you, Demotis!

    6. aw dont feel bad! the bukeman update up there fixed a lot of the problems i was having. the more supporting this the merrier right? i assume you'll probably help/keep track of whatevers going on with that github version as well :)

  58. I had given up all hope! But now I am listening to 'Time of the Season' by Guess Who, on Anesidora! Its a perfect Saturday morning surprise, thanks to Demotis and BukeMan! You guys are great, just know there is always someone using / wanting to use Anesidora :)

  59. Thank you BukeMan.. No more pauses after 2 songs!!!! It keeps going and going!!!

  60. Has anyone else noticed some weird issues with volume. Some songs seem to sound like someone's turning the volume knob up and down the whole time. It's hard to really explain beyond that.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Has anyone been experiencing issues within the past couple of days or weeks with Anesidora not playing songs, but rather showing up as the song title & artist, but instead it'll play an ad from Pandora? Is there a fix to this bug?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yes, it's very annoying. I hope it's fixed soon.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am now getting the ads too. Very weird just heard one for some radio station?????

    ReplyDelete
  64. Not only ads, but random stopping. Very annoying. I had to switch to the website for the time being.

  65. i was having the same problems so i added the newest version from github i think they are on 1.6.11 instead of 1.6.8,1 heres the link

  66. Ads still play on all versions of Anesidora including this version. It started happened right after updating to 1.6.11. Devs please fix playback issues like random playback stopping and commercial ads.

  67. I have been having the same issue. I've just been to lazy to look into it. I'll see what I can do and post a fix.

    1. I found an temporary fix for it. I ran Chrome as administrator and after reinstalling extension it now works without ads playing. It's actually more stable and more responsive than before.

  68. I recently had to reinstall the plugin, but it's not taking my user name or password. Anyone else seeing this?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Doesn't seem like anyone will ever join the development and contribute to project. I don't experience the issues with skips like you describe on latest version, so I have no idea how to help you guys.
