    Question Pandora via BlackVPN in Europe

    Hi All,

    I subscribed to BlackVPN, so I'm able to listen to Pandora Radio when I'm connected to my VPN. This works on the browser or iPod/iPhone like a charm.

    Now I'd like to listen to Pandora on my Squeezebox Classic here in Germany too. So I went to the "Plugins" tab on server preferences and enabled the Pandora v3.0 Plugin. But after restarting I don't see this app anywhere on my Squeezebox. But the plugin is listed under "active Plugins" on the server preferences.

    Does Squeezeserver block such plugins that are not supposed to work in users regions? Or did I miss something?

    Talking Solution found

    Hi,

    I found the problem by myself. Even if I enable the pandora plugin in the server software, the pandora app must also be enabled in mysqueezebox.

    Now I'm able to listen to Pandora Radio on my european Squeezebox. Wonderful!

    how did you manage to do that? Does Pandora work in Europe as default or do you have to use your vpn service?

    Yes, you need a VPN service to get it work. I'm using BlackVPN.

    Routing Sqeezebox through VPN

    How did you go about getting the squeezebox to route through the vpn? Mine just goes straight through my ISP even with my laptop working through the vpn. Thanks.

    I presume the SB Server is actualy streaming the Pandora stream toward the Classic (or Touch etc.)...so the PC running SBS would be the actual Pandora client (?)
    In that case, having the SBS run on an ordinary PC it is simple to install the tunnel software there. Using that, the European based PC is cloaked with an US ip adress

    Had a similar question for my WD TV Live that can play Pandora, but sees my European IP from my provider. Stuck there, as that device does not use any kind of server software
    Squeezebox Server 7.9.1 (Pinkdot build) *** Squeezebox family: 3x Radio (Black-White-Red) / 2x Touch / 2x Controller / Android App / SqueezePlay *** AKG K240-DF headphone
    Synology DS415play - DSM 6.x *** Denon PMA1500ae (analog)*** Kef iQ7 S.E *** Xbox One X 4K Blu-ray player *** Squeeze Control (UWP app for Windows 10 and Xbox One X)
