Unblock Jango playing


This post is somewhat out of topic, but I think that it will be useful to someone…

Jango is a startup, still in beta testing, which enables the user to create (and share with friends) specially made internet radio stations. The idea is very good and I decided to ask for an invitation to test the service.

My invitation arrived this morning, so I started creating my account and my first jango-music station, which I named “Classic Rock picks“. But I had a problem: the player could not be started and there was no indication about what went wrong!

I emailed jango’s feedback team and I got a very prompt reply with 3 possible reasons (thank you Cat). The third of them was actually the root of my problem, which was the blocking of the flash player by the Flashblock add-on for Firefox. All I had to do was to add the “www.jango.com” web address into the Flashblock’s permitted websites list and restart Firefox.

Jimi Hendrix greeted me singing “Foxy lady” 🙂

  1. Jango worked so fine all the months before until I received an Update of Firefox to version 6.0 and in this update-process I added some Add-Ons – one of them Flashblock. Since I haven't used Jango for some days I didn't bring the non-working Jango in connection with the Flashgot-Add-On…but was quite sure that the Firefox-Update had something to with the non-working Jango.
    From your describtion I added Jango to the exceptions of Flashgot and here we are…I have sound again!

    THANKS ALOT FOR YOUR HELP, even if your help was written many years ago already. 🙂
