Pandora – Tor Around The World

Want to listen to Pandora.com but you live outside the USA and UK?

One well-known solution is to sling your web traffic around the world, so that it looks as though your computer is in the USA. You can do this using the Tor network.

In a nutshell, you install Tor, set it to use end-points located in the USA, and configure Privoxy to only route web traffic through Tor if it’s for Pandora.com.

However, it can be a bit tricky to set-up on your Mac so I’ve written a short guide which should you help along.

This might work for you, it might not. I suspect that the Loonies across the border will find this a good solution as network slow-down by using Tor shouldn’t be too bad.

As we’re talking about all things around the world, here’s a blast from the past… enjoy!

PS: there’s a new version of PandoraJam (a fun way to enhance your Pandora listening pleasure) coming out just in time for Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!

    New version available of PandoraJam, you say. Nope, it is not new, it was released last October on the 29th. Not new. Your remarks are misleading.

  2. Simon says:

    It’s coming out tomorrow, November 20th. I wrote that “there’s a new version… coming out… stay tuned”. So not misleading at all – patience my friend!

    Hello!When I configure the proxy settings as recommended, suddenly Mail.app cannot fetch mail through POP anymore. actually, as soon as I set privoxy as a SOCKS proxy, Mail does not work anymore.Did this happen to you? Please give me a hand!

  4. Simon says:

    Try not setting the SOCKS proxy. Just the HTTP and HTTPS proxy. Make sure you have configured Privoxy to only route Pandora.com traffic via Tor. You don’t want your normal e-mails going through Tor.

    I’ve just followed your tutorial on how to configure Tor for use with Pandora. It’s sort of worked in that I can listen to Pandora via Safari now (and I’m a UK listener) but unfortunately I can’t get Pandora Jam working with it. Is there something else I need to do to get Pandora Jam working again?

    I can’t tell you how thankful I am for this walkthrough. I hated giving up Pandora when leaving the U.S., and this solution was the only that I’ve found that works. So far I’ve only had the song stop once while waiting for bandwidth, so I’d say overall it’s a great success. I do have one question:Should I add all the U.S. exit points I find to the config file, or only those with decent bandwidth rates? I don’t know if I’ll end up with a slower overall connection if Vidalia is attempting to connect to 20 exit points with extremely low bandwidth capabilities or not.Thanks again!
