PandoraSaver

Recommended Posts

I put that at the end of my post - I'll grovel to a mod sometime and see if i can't get the threads sorted (and the title changed on this one, when ready).

Got the blacklisting stuff implemented; just need to do final testing.

Note to self: Hotspotshield uses a HTTP proxy. So I guess i should implement http proxy chaining after all (hotspotshield being a free anonomizer vpn dealie that also allows pandora to work, much like Tor)

Is anyone running this on a vista machine? I just tried it on a friend's comp and received a cryptic (read: nonsensical) error :X and would like to know if it is a machine-specific problem or all around vista.

After figuring the vista situation out, and doing a little bit of testing on other machines i'm more or less ready to call the standalone SProxy version ready for proper release and the fiddler version officially obsolete.

As for no music played, you might try firefox, and see if that works. Playing no music while displaying "It's taking longer..." while happily ripping away seems to be an IE-specific problem. I haven't the faintest what would cause that problem, though. If you can, PM me the results of http://127.0.0.1:8888/config on the newest beta version

No it's not IE-specific. Firefox behaves exactly the same. I know that if the pac file below is used it will play but no proxy chaining and hence no ripping.

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)

{

if (shExpMatch(host, "*pandora.com*")) return "SOCKS 127.0.0.1:9050";

// All other requests don't pass proxy

return "DIRECT";

}

That make me think if there is a way to do proxy chaining with the above pac config.

Lastly http://127.0.0.1 returns

502 Server Error

Connection failure

Timed out waiting for a response

Have you tried putting 127.0.0.1:8888 as a nonspecific proxy server, that is, use it all the time? Also, are you seeing the various requests being routed through SProxy? (they will show in the main window and log)

for the PAC files, you would use return "PROXY 127.0.0.1:8888" instead of socks (wind up with the same PAC i had in the first post) to have it route through SProxy and PS.

And yeah, i noticed that i had firefox set to send local requests through proxy too, hence that worked for me. Oops.

With nonspecific proxy server I still got Error 502 but this time with a different description: "Unable to connect: DNS resolution failed." Yes all the requests are shown in SProxy.

Hmmmm, something is very wrong if it can't resolve DNS. What is your internet setup like? do you connect through a proxy normally, nevermind for pandora?

I normally connect to the Internet directly with no proxy. I only use proxy with Pandora.

Edit

http://127.0.0.1:8888 is working in Firefox (without pac file). But still with "It's taking longer.." error.

Now TOR is working. I have problems with SP: it seems that "turbo mode" is alwas on, since it is always trying to get multiple audio at the same time (I see from the log), so when Pandorasaver is on it never plays the music. Even if you uncheck the option it is still in turbo mode, and the same message "it's taking longer than expected..." comes out

If simpleproxy is running but Pandorasaver is disabled the music plays correctly other

Also: it frequently goes on timeout. keep in mind that using TOR the actual speed of transfer is about 10 kb/s so the program should be more patient when receiving the data :-)

Actually, the multiple requests is caused by the flash applet being impatient. It might be timing out itself. I'll look into seeing if i can get it to stop doing that (i notice it sometimes even though it downloads very fast here)

Turbo mode doesn't actually change how it downloads, it just changes it so when a song is completely downloaded and is about to be sent to the flash applet it swaps the song data with a 5 second long blank aac file. I'll look into getting HTTP proxy chaining again, as it seems "Hotspotshield" is much faster than TOR and provides the same function (fooling pandora).

@boem:

I'll try implementing some DNS backups (specifically, the ability to look up dns via socks4a/tor) for lack of a better idea.

I'll upload the newest (still-beta) version in a bit once i've made some changes.

But I saw 3 and even 4 songs downloading at the same time, and no song actually played (always the same annoying message). However if i disable pandorasaver the songs are played normally, one at a time

Hope it helps to figure it out what's happening.

If you can get the log it would help a lot. (see this diagram: http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r49/zigzagjoe/sptut.gif )

A screen of SProxy's main window + a log exerpt would be good as well. (at the time you are trying to load pandora)

Great Job! I really love this thing.

Every version just gets better and I am very grateful. But one aspect of every version just doesn't seem to work for me. The log file indicates the successful execution of mp4tags.exe, but the Save Folder tells a different story. Folders are named properly as are files - without any tags. Is anyone else having this problem

What player are you using? If you are using WMP to play, it does not have built in support for reading AAC tags (and will show nothing).

@boem+Stokastik:

i've added support for proxy dns resolving (to allow tor to handle resolving of the addr).

Also, i tested "hinting" (basically dropping the first line immediately to try to stop it from requesting more) and it did not stop pandora from complaining.

I'm thinking I will need to introduce a low bandwidth mode in which it streams all data to prevent this. (this will disable turbo mode, but Tor could hardly support that anyways). Edit: low bandwidth mode does indeed fix it. However, the download button, auto refresh, miniplayer check-breaking, and ad removal options are all disabled. (because the response is immediately written to the server, can't change what is already sent!)

after messing with tor, i've got the timeout sorted by drastically increasing the timeout. (these are also able to be edited in the config file - defaults to 60secs)

note to self: blacklist deletion. After that's done and tested working can probably release.

Edit. Tried hotspot shield. It can successfully chain, yes, but it doesn't allow the CONNECT method. Thus, Pandora can't load via it. HTTP proxy chaining is completed regardless.

Standalone version released! download it at http:// zzj.itf-inc.com/SPPS1.000c.zip (OUTDATED)

Huzzah~

New features of note:

Blacklisting! prevent files from being downloaded + delete already existing

Standalone and such. No external programs required.

Low bandwidth mode, for tor and slower connections. Use this if Pandora requests songs multiple times, or if you know your connection speed to be lower than 50kb/s.

Bugfixes up the arse (of course.)

I'll update the graphic in a bit.

Now i just need to find me a moderator to sort the title (now fiddler-free)

With this, the fiddler version is tentatively obsoleted and discouraged from active use (I'd rather not have to backport everything, even when they are rather similar)

Hey ZZJ - not sure what graphic you are referring to, but can you check the album artwork that's being saved ... I noticed you are caching it but where too? I noticed a bunch of files I grabbed the other day all have the same artwork but are all wrong.

Thx!

By graphic i meant the large image showing where stuff is.

Just checked the album art, and it was all correct.

The caching is just to memory - it saves the image that Pandora got and the URL that got it. Then, if a song played has the same album art URL as one that is stored in the cache it uses the cached image rather than re-download it (which would be traceable).

Just some debugging info - confirming what i already suspected - pandora from time to time sends malformed responses. It's just in a nice display so I can tell exactly what was received. You may safely ignore it.

Actually, by looking at the response, it appears to be a server failure as it generated the same error when it tried to get a nice error page (and on the subsequent request to the same server). So a few of these errors in a row from time to time evidently is a fault of pandora (good to know, i was worried something was broken in the header-parsing)

The caching is just to memory - it saves the image that Pandora got and the URL that got it. Then, if a song played has the same album art URL as one that is stored in the cache it uses the cached image rather than re-download it (which would be traceable).

Cool ... but can you check the logic just in case? I just looked at a Steely Dan and Steve Winwood song and both of them had a Judy Garland album cover lol. These just got captured with the recent version I downloaded about an hour ago. Thx.

Yeah, I checked it. Didn't see any problems (and i had tested it again too). Going to add some checks just in case, I think.

thanks for the new sproxy version!

a few suggestions (dunno whether u r open to them) :)

(1) I just used the firefox portable from the previous version, but now with the startup parameters like the pandora.com and the browserpac.js in the firefoxportable.ini. would you consider this method to make your release truly standalone?

(2) the sproxy window wont minimize to systray. now that you've got rid of fiddler, wht dont you make it just the "P" icon in the tray? i mean, add one more option to the pandorasaver icon in the tray to bring up the sproxy window! that will leave the users with just their browser windows to deal with. btw, there are still some fiddler references in the PS GUI.

(3) I am using neroAACenc.exe to reencode the wav to lc AAC, so that it will be compatible with itunes and my portable player. thanks for implementing this! but there are a few problems.

Encoder: %path%neroAacEnc.exe ; Encoder Command: -lc -br %bitrate% -if %wavtmp% -of %out%.

the log says the conversion was successful. but the resulting file is only in KBs. looks like PS does not wait long enough for the conversion to complete and deletes the source file!

after this step the log window stays at "Taggin the mp3 file".

Note:

the nero encoder brings up a command prompt window when it runs. i solved this using a program called cmdow.exe by modifyin the Encoder: %path%cmdow.exe and Encoder Command: /run /hid neroAacEnc.exe -lc -br %bitrate% -if %wavtmp% -of %out%.

EDIT: one more thing that i noticed; sproxy changes the IE settings in Connections> Lan settings>Use a proxy server (Check). is there any way to disable this for users like me who use other browsers for PS?

ZZJ,

The latest version works very fine. All the components launch successfully with almost no timed out error now. The great thing is Pandora plays while PS is also working. Many thanks.
