Bloatware rebellion: JamFM.de again

Friday, January 9th, 2009 | technology, Uncategorized | 1 Comment

In the third instalment of my war on bloatware series, the first and only enemy of hassle-free streaming pleasure returns. After being defeated the first time around, JamFM.de has risen up again. As you probably won’t have noticed, jamfm.php on phikappa.eu has stopped working – it can’t extract the token anymore. Why? The reason is simple. The address where the flash player is located has changed. I replaced it in the script and everything in good order again. [Edit, one minute later] You’d think! But no, seems as JamFM’s own player cannot find the mp3 file anymore. Booo! We’ll switch to Windows Media, then.

(Outdated) Please find the new version where the old one was: http://phikappa.eu/jamfm.php (this does not work, but may at some point in the future

You can display an URL to paste to VLC or your mms:// capable player of choice here:

http://phikappa.eu/jamfm_asx.php

[Edit] Please find a script at http://phikappa.eu/jamfm/jamfm_wm.php that generates an .asx you can directly open with your Windows Media Audio-capable player of choice from the browser.

[Edit 2] Well, somebody already discovered the same “sikkrit” things on the nacamar server i did… so the next steps i’d have done just became redundant. Have fun with http://www.project-fx.de/tiscali/

You can quote me on this

“Political activity? Not at the moment, thanks but no thanks. I don’t see our civil rights in danger right now. True, democracy in itself isn’t a guarantee of individual freedoms – since the majority of people is absolutely stupid, this majority will have no difficulties in signing away their rights for some vague jet compelling promises uttered by demagogues. But in my immediate space-time neighbourhood, i don’t see any major risks. After securing my private independence, however, i shall surely seek public office to serve those like me.”
