I've been playing around with writing my own timeshifters.  I have a working proof of concept (pictured above) that I plan to polish up.  And not all of my intended features are working yet.  I'm just playing around right now.

Here is a big question?  Would you be willing to install a packet sniffer (WinPCap) on your machine to be able to save properly tagged (with embedded album art) mp3s using a small, stable and easy to use program?

Bigger question: Any platform but Windows?

Nice job :). Regarding the sniffer.. why not implement your own instead of using WinPcap?

Yeah I consided that.  Perhaps when the program is finished and solid I'll look into that.  Right now I'm working on the polish.  I'm currently implementing a thumbs up/down system to indicate whether or not you want to save the song or skip it now and in the future.  I'm also going to work on filling out some of the ID3 info (track, genre, year, etc) from freedb or musicbrainz or somewhere.  Oh, and I also need some prettier graphics :)

Well I did get some socket based capture code working except that on Windows capturing through sockets appears not to see outgoing packets.  Since the xml file containing the upcoming (4) songs to be played is 'POST'ed to Pandora I'm not getting that anymore and the info in that file is the key to correctly identifying all the other traffic.  Sadness.  So I'm back to using WinPcap so I can get back to feature implementation.  Unless somebody smarter than I (almost everybody) can point me in the direction of some socket level capturing that sees outbound traffic.

Now to sleep!
