Digitally Imported & SKY.fm blocked in the UK

By Geekphreek

I’m a large fan of Clementine and I’ve been using it to listen to Digitally Imported radio streams for a long time.  Yesterday, I fired up and thought “Today I will have some Chillstep” and when I was confronted with a message telling me about licensing restrictions in the UK, I was irate.

So, UK isn’t allowed? Er, no, you will not tell me what I can and can’t access on the internet, thank you.

In Clementine, open up Settings, go to Network Proxy.  Set it to Manual Proxy Configuration, HTTP Proxy type, IP: on port 80.

If that proxy is down, grab one from http://www.xroxy.com/proxylist.php?port=&type=All_http&ssl=&country=US&latency=&reliability=#table

Apply, OK and then voila, enjoy your streaming music again.
