ShinyGroove for German Users

Hi all,

I have the same Problem as all german Users. Grooveshark and ShinyGroove is blockt.
But I found a solution that is not perfekt, but works.

You need a small extra Programm that direct the traffic from a special programm over a proxy. What for me worked was "ProxyCap"

After the installation you make a new Proxy. Take Proxyserver from a Free-Proxyserver-List.

Then make a ruel that shinygroove should use that Proxy. click "OK" at all windows and enable ProxyCap. (See the pdf for some screenshots)

Then start ShinnyGroove. It may take a little while (up to some minutes) because the free Proxy is probably lame.
But Grooveshark loads. If the first load is done, you can disable ProxyCap.

From now on, you can usw ShinyGroove without a Proxy and your normal Internetspeed.
If you quit ShinyGroove, you have to enable ProxyCap again for the first load.
See the Pdf for some Screenshot. I hope this helps some people

Best regards

    it works with proxifier too. Proxifier does the same like Proxycap.

    It works even with the older Version Proxifier 1.3.7 ;)

    Best regards

    appendix 2:

    It works with a simple vpn connection too.

    Go get yourselfe a vpn account anywhere. There a lot of free ones or take a cheap provider.
    I've chosen and take the offer 1€ for 1 year with 50mb per month. Thats completly enough and you save that you always get your connection.

    In your OSX Preferences you create a new vpn connection and follow the instruktions (like here:

    When you want to start shinygroove just click on your vpn connection on "connect".
    When shinygroove has loaded, you can disconnenct from your vpn server and go on normaly.

    the big advantage is, you don't need an extra program und you find very cheap provider which makes it easy to get a stable connection.

    Hope u enjoy
