I am on 2 different Mac (Big Sur & Catalina)

Hi there, @verasullivan @whocares2. 👋

To avoid experiencing any listening issues, you can find steps on how to add Pandora to the allowlist in your ad blocker on our help page.

If that doesn't help, I would recommend checking your anti-virus software (if you have one). Some anti-virus software like Kaspersky can have anti-banner settings enabled that behave similarly to ad blockers. If you're using Kaspersky software, identify the version you have installed and follow their instructions on how to disable that feature: 

Another option is to check your privacy settings. Some extensions may also act as an ad-blocker. Since there are so many variations of ad blocking software and programs, we are unable to provide instructions for all of them. If you continue to have trouble, please reach out to the security software's or device manufacturer's support team for additional assistance.

You can also bypass using your web browser to stream Pandora by downloading our Desktop App.

I am having the same issue. My ads were working, and then I just all of a sudden got an error notice. When I click the "help page" link it goes to this:

Hi

 

I keep getting the adblocker when I try to play through Vivaldi (which is up to date:

4.0.2312.41

)

 

However, when I play through my older Opera browser it plays fine. I have been recently told that opera isn't a good browser, and I have finally almost gotten Vivaldi back to how I like it

 

Kind Regards,

Scott

I am not using an adblocker, the only extensions I have installed are Grammarly and ImTranslator

Hi, @skarmartin. 👋

Thanks for following up with those details. Unfortunately, Vivaldi and Opera are not supported web browsers to stream Pandora. I would recommend checking out our web specifications here: Minimum Web Specifications

Please use one of our supported browsers for listening to Pandora, like Firefox, Chrome, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

We're having trouble playing audio on this device.
We can't load media right now. This is commonly caused by overzealous ad blockers or privacy extensions. Please check that your browser extensions are not blocking our audio and refresh the page. If you continue to see this error you should contact support.
