Thanks for adding this plugin! Been really looking forward to this.

Any chance on adding a next song feature that Songza currently has? It's limited but it does allow for 3-5 skip to next tracks.

As it stands now, you can skip as many tracks as you'd like. You can also go backwards through your previous tracks to the first track played.

Hi I'm new to xbmc but love the idea of a songza plugin however when running it places the same song, maybe two, into the playlist over and over. Have you had this issue?

I have run into this as well but haven't gotten a chance to thoroughly investigate it. Given some time, the problem seems to disappear which makes me wonder if it isn't a problem on Songza's side. It appears that this is a problem in their own mobile app as well: https://getsatisfaction.com/songza/topic...g_repeated

Nice music addon! I like it! But the addon always repeat the same 3 songs. Sad

I fixed the repeating songs issue. You need to store the cookies from each request because Songza uses a session ID to keep things straight. Please let me know how I can insert my code into your repo. In the meantime, here is my version: http://goo.gl/QCGwqG

I think the best way for now would be to Fork & Pull (fork my repo, do your additions/modifications, and then submit a pull request). Glad to have some external contributions as I've been swamped with work lately!

I suppose I should also mention that all code should follow the PEP 8 Python style guide. I generally use SublimeLinter to help me spot any problems.

Now I'm confused. There are two repos with nearly identical code. I forked djcode's before I saw yours

This is the repo for the plugin released in this thread: XBMC-Plugin-Songza

Ah OK, my bad. I added search and user content. Forking yours now.
