(Pandora) Saver2

I had previously been following a really old thread about another project of yours. I was going to ask for some hints on how you are scraping the artist/track from Pandora, as I'm working on a Centrafuse Pandora plugin.

Would you be willing to share some of your expertise? :)

Mark

p.s. I'm also all over IRC, and just today realized that you're on coldfront. I connected and can idle if you prefer to reply there :P

Thanks

Hi ZigZagJoe,

Love Saver2!

I guess my last post got lost when something happened to the forums a few days ago... I'll re-post...

I was wondering if you ever tried to get Saver2 to capture video from Amazon Prime Instant Video? (Or Netflix or Hulu for that matter)

I'm checking out a one month free trial of Amazon Prime Instant Video.

http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Video/b/ref=topnav_storetab_atv?ie=UTF8&node=16261631

I've found that I can even watch it on my Android phone. I'm guessing they are pushing the videos in just flash? I fired up Saver2 and started up a movie with Instant Video, but I didn't see the large video file downloading in the sniffer window. I could see a file that was about 6mb labeled something like trailer when the video started, but not the huge movie.

Any thoughts about this or have you tried? :)

Thanks!

this forum sucks cock. good thing i saved the big post. going to put up my own when school gets a little less hectic.

DO NOT REPLY TO THIS THREAD - I PROBABLY WILL NOT SEE IT! INSTEAD, GET ON IRC BY CLICKING THE "LIVE HELP" BUTTON ON SPROXY, by launching IRCHelp.exe in your install folder, OR by joining #saver2 ON irc.coldfront.net !

You can also get on irc by going to this web page.

Thanks, ZZJ. These forums have gone to pot.

Sorry for the extremely delayed reponses, these forums have gone to shit. (and the moderation shit you apparently get now). Will set up my own at some point.

This has been popping up recently when trying to start up Sproxy. The standalone Pandora client still works fine though. I'm on a university campus, but it has worked all semester; it's only recently started having problems.

I'm not sure what I would change the "listening port" to. Any ideas?

Any port than is not 8888, apparently.

Hello,

Thanks for responding. Here is the link to the log. It looks like there's some stream error and the song stops transferring.

http://zzj.itf-inc.com/u/dd6da6a0720

Also, I took a screenshot of the player when it messes up, and it appears that the song just stops transferring, but the file on the hard drive has the correct song length, but only has the actual song for what's been downloaded.

I'm using the latest Saver2, and wine 1.3.17. Mac OS X 1.6.6

I'm also using dotnet2.0 from winetricks. NOT mono, and ie6 from winetricks. I also have gecko installed in the WINE prefix.

Wine problem. Happens from time to time. No way to fix it, that i know of.

Hi there ZigZagJoe, love Saver2!

Current problem: It seems lately the songs glitch, kinda like slight skips. Could this be Pandora fighting you?

Anyway wondered if this has come up before.

Thanks!

This was caused by the last patch, as i reduced output latency, and in some cases with integrated audio there are problems like this. Download and install http://zzj.itf-inc.com/s2/misc/Saver2Setup_beta_1279.exe over what you have now, then open sproxy, launch the client once, close the client, then on the sproxy window click configuration. at left, pick the proxy button, then click Advanced Configuration. Look for the entry named __PandoraClient_OutputLatency, click on it. in the right textbox, it will be set to 150. Change this to 300, then hit OK, and yes to restart. Try using the client normally, it should work without problems now.

Hey ZigZagJoe,

Have you ever tried to get Saver2 to work with Amazon Instant Video service? http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Video/b/ref=topnav_storetab_atv?ie=UTF8&node=16261631

When you sign up for Amazon Prime free trial, you get unlimited access to all their Instant Videos. The videos play right from the web page thru flash I believe. It even plays on my Android web browser.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? :)

I'll have to play with Saver2 tomorrow and see if I can grab the file that's downloaded when playing the movie.

Thanks!

Smoke.007

Have not, no. I will take a look at it sometime, though i have already used my amazon prime trial so might not be able to do anything. It will not save automatically, but you may get the link from traffic through sproxy.

ZigZagJoe,

Could you please take a look at the following log snippet -

I have no issues using your (wonderful) app with grooveshark, but as soon as I try anything else, like Songza, I get this:

"

"

I can play the audio and everything seems to work. Yet nothing is saved?

Are there any settings I should check?

Thanks!

Probably songza has songs without tags now, as the plugin is "lazy" and does not sniff metadata anymore.

Netflix is almost certainty a no go, they use some sort of encrypted transport i'm sure. Hulu uses RTMP, which is out of the scope of saver2 (which is designed around http), and probably this amazon prime does also. So no way to save from them, simply. There are packet sniffers which can save from hulu, iirc, but saver2 does not work like that, by design.

I've been trying to get saver2 with tor enabled work under linux/wine. I still struggle to get tor to work. Querying preprocessed endpoints is ok with 42 nodes found. But then I get tortunnel exited prematurely, retrying and premature exit on and on. I use sock 5 through 127.0.0.1:5060 which works fine under windows. I suspect it could be something to do with my ssh setting but could not find any solution. Can someone tell me what is needed to get tortunnelling to work under linux.

Love your program man, just wanna say that up front. I use it everyday!

I just reformatted and reinstalled saver2. There used to be a way i could start the sproxy and the pandora client at the same time and it would work flawlessly. I thought it was just by opening up the pandora client, but that no longer opens SPROXY with it. I tried making a bat file that opened both pandora.exe and sproxy.exe but the pandora client doesn't hook into it for some reason. Can you give me a hand figuring out a way to get this done?

open the pandora client and select menu then configuration then go to the Pandora section on the first tab there is an option to launch Pandora automatically when SProxy is started. then you can just use a shortcut to Sproxy and it will open both.

On a separate note I am having an issue where when I have Sproxy running and in my browser I watch a youtube video I get a bunch of error popups..

this is from watching one video from beginning to end also clicking around in the videos progress bar seems to cause additional ones to pop up. any advice?

I think these recent errors have something todo with the new pandora.

I keep losing the thumbs up on my songs, and I think Saver2 might be stripping them, or causing problems. None of the songs that I know have thumbs up show thumbs up in Saver2. This started happening within the last week.

I tried using your IRC channel like a good little user, but it keeps kicking me saying I am banned although I have never logged into that channel before. Shrug. I hope you check this occasionally.....

Why did we lose the download button in the new version?

I seem to be banned from the irc channel too, I've logged into it a few times, but I hadn't said anything at all since my one initial conversation weeks ago, and I wasn't even idling... what gives? did he hand out a ban to all comcast users or something?

is there anything i could do to get unbanned? I could email him my hostname apparently but I don't know zigzag's email...

I am having a problem with the latest pandora client, it seems that the unlimited skips feature is broken. After about 10 or so skips I get this error:

Client: ERROR Failed to get a playlist - com.savagebeast.radio.RadioApplicationException: 192.168.161.172|1326984746129|DAILY_SKIP_LIMIT_REACHED|subscribe for more skips

Does anyone know a workaround for this?

Thanks.

I can confirm that unlimited skipping is not working on Saver2. I'd also to throw my name in the hat for when a fix is out.
