HTML5 Version of Grooveshark on my tablet doesn't play music. Is there a fix I can try?

Posted

I've come across the HTML5 version of Grooveshark via the link attached. This site it works fine on the stock android browser, but when I try to play music via the Firefox Beta App it won't play music at all. I am able to navigate freely, but there seems to be an issue with streaming the music. I've tried remedying this via Phony but this doesn't seem to help. Also I haven't found any other sites that address this issue, so I've decided to forward the question here I was wondering if there is any potential fix to this that I can apply?

Grooveshark only supplies patented audio formats (mp3 or AAC). For now Firefox supports OGG (Theora) audio and WAV.
