PandoraJam – Updated for Lion & Classic Pandora

Update: This is a full release, and no longer a beta, so the post has been modified slightly.


There is a new version of PandoraJam (1.7 build 476) available for download:

What’s new:

  • supports Classic Flash version of Pandora website (and not the new HTML5 version) and will try to load the Classic Flash version
  • support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later)
  • now streams music to AppleTV
  • fixes a problem streaming music to some Airport Express units
  • auto reloads if the app does not launch properly and thus cannot enhance the Pandora website (this means you no longer have to ‘Empty Cache’, quit and relaunch the app)
  • auto fixing of windowing position (when sometimes Pandora website message banners caused the entire display to be shifted down)

Some help:

You shouldn’t need to do anything special… but if PandoraJam does not load the Classic Flash website properly, try the following:
  1. Launch Safari and visit Pandora.com
  2. If you are taken to the new HTML 5 website, click the ‘Old Site’ link in the top right hand corner
  3. Once the Classic Flash website player loads, close the browser window.
  4. Launch PandoraJam
Bonus:

It seems possible (for now) to run the new HTML 5 player in a browser window logged into one account, while the PandoraJam application uses another account. 



Known issue:

On Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, Adobe Flash Player version 10,3 repeats letter keystrokes. This affects the Flash Player when running in 32 bit mode (which is what PandoraJam runs in), but not in 64 bit mode. Downgrading to Flash Player version 10,2 eliminates the keystroke problem.  This is an Adobe Flash (possibly WebKit) bug and needs to be fixed by Adobe (possibly Apple).

    I've noticed that when I tell pandorajam to check for updates it finds this one, but after downloading it says it is improperly signed. I then cancel because I'm not sure how serious of a problem that is.Also, just wondering, is html5 going to be the death of pandorajam? I would guess they will eventually stop supporting or even making available the old site.

    It seems that you can't revert the Pandora site to classic anymore.
