Not sure if this is the same as #348.

This happened a few times:
Skips song after song to finally write
(i) Receiving new playlist... Error: No error message available.

When I go to I have this message
We're sorry, but we can't find any more music to play on your station right now. Try switching stations.

Happens with a US VPN too.

Can you post pianobar’s output (last few lines) after applying this

coaxial commented Feb 20, 2013

Sure, I am using Brew for Mac, any idea how to apply this patch?

Reply to this email directly or view it on GitHub (#352 (comment)).


PromyLOPh commented Feb 21, 2013

Nope, unfortunately not. But you should be able to compile by hand too,
as you have installed pianobar’s dependencies already.

coaxial commented Feb 21, 2013

I have no idea how to do that, unfortunately. Maybe you should push the patch into the main branch and it will update on everyone's pianobar? It will be useful anyway and will save people from doing this kind of things to help improve pianobar

update on everyone's pianobar?
That’s not possible, as the patch unconditionally prints the raw API
responses to stdout.

This just started happening today for me as well. On Arch Linux (64bit).

I have the same problem on arch 64 bit.

Patch produces:

(i) Receiving new playlist... {"stat":"fail","message":"An unexpected error occurred","code":1039}
Error: No error message available.

I received an email from Pandora mentioning how they're putting a limit on mobile listening, and I'm in the top x%, so this is probably related. The player on my mobile device sits there and gives no error, without loading music.

Edit: The website seems to have cut me off also.

Edit 2: It all works again now.

Thanks. So – again – all I can do is add a new error message.
Any suggestions for a short, useful message?

I'm not even sure that's what it was. I don't now about @gtaylor, but I was working again after a couple minutes and haven't had the problem since. If I run into it again, I'll make sure to notify you.

I think the biggest thing is that it kept trying to pull new playlists from the server (and it seemed to be succeeding), it just failed to play each song, and kept fetching additional playlists in a more or less infinite loop.

As long as it doesn't do that, I'll be happy :)

It's working again for the moment, but I tend to listen to Pandora a lot, so I may get kicked out again shortly. Will update if/when that happens.

@PromyLOPh PromyLOPh piano: Add error message for code 1039
See #352.

PromyLOPh commented Mar 9, 2013

I added an error message for code 1039. Additionally pianobar will print
a message and stop playback if audio files cannot be accessed.
