View Full Version : slacker?

September 25th, 2008, 06:53 PM
i know this would present a few challenges logistically and maybe even legally... but it would be so nice to somehow squeeze my slacker radio stations (slacker.com = like pandora... kinda... WAY more control) into the boxee interface. i certainly wouldn't expect any help from them on it - still nothing for the iphone and i've looked for some other way to pull the stream outside of the supported means but i'm just not that good. there is an embedded flash version... anyone? could you uhhh... you know, crack that junk and make it boxee's (expletive)? i've really grown attached to the service but i'm trying to get to where i never run an internet browser in my living room. i guess i do need to dive in to last.fm a bit though as a basis of comparison if for nothing else.

side note: yaaay - welcome to the forum: meeee... yup, i'm in, i'm new, and so far i like what i see. i have used XBMC on... well, a modded XB ("tech" build) and always felt there was just a little something missing... not file support, that's been fantastic... just some... idk... zazz? finally, it looks like boxee will be the media center app to make me buy a mini for the living room. keep it up, looking forward to seeing where this goes. (XBMC guys, please don't take that the wrong way...)

3vil welcome to boxee...we are always working on new content (legal) to be implemented into the application in the near future, this might solve the problem of the dreaded internet browser..:) check out last.fm it's not bad..

Just want to toss in my request for Slacker. Last.fm and Pandora are fine, but I have slacker for their portable device. It would be great if I could tune to my stations on boxee.

Slacker would be the bomb! I know there are similar things out there, but I like Slacker much better than any of them. Still waiting for Slacker support on my Sonos setup as well!

Any advancement on this topic? Slacker is definately the most powerful radio app available, better than Pandora or last.fm...

Liking the program. Would just love to get slacker radio feeds through boxee.

Also do you guys find that video from PBS is a day old and NPR is a day old? I have been going to their web sites to be able tostream latest news. Am I missing something?

Will try last.fm

I did not know slacker and it has killed Pandora for me!

I know you can get Pandora through Boxee, but I really don't like Pandora as much as Slacker, I think Slacker has better radio stations, etc...

anybody have an app for slacker in Boxee?

just bringing this back up.. anybody have a Slacker app yet.. still I think Slacker smokes Pandora and everybody else, such a good service!

I would LOVE to have these apps in Boxee.. anybody?

Ya know.... just one post about this probably would have been sufficient. ;)

[merged similar requests into this one thread; left general question about music vids as-is]
