I love pandora, However, I live in India where pandora is doesn’t stream. I got around this by proxying over socks5. Here is how you can do it.
- First you need access to a socks 5 proxy, If you have an ssh server running in the US or any country where pandora streams, you can spin up a proxy connection by running the following command
ssh -D 1337 -f -C -q -N firstname.lastname@example.org
- Once you have this running you’ll need to change your pianobar config to make it use this proxy
password = yoursecretpasswordinplaintext
user = youremail
proxy = socks5://localhost:1337/
Once you have this setup, you can just run the
pianobar command and it will start playing your favorite music.
