Has anyone figured out how to get the new Pandora application to run on Leap 42.1? I get the interface up and the advertisements appear but no audio. The application fails in both Chromium and Firefox. The previous classic Pandora ran without problems and I can’t figure out what has changed.

I know Pithos is available but it adds another layer of software on top of an already complex piece of software. There is no way to predict how long the programmers will try and keep the software current. I may try it if all else fails but for the moment I would prefer to get the standard website working.
Pithos is my favorite. I followed the install multimedia sticky and made sure two things: First, I copied the codecs listed and then I made sure I did the package switch. I do not understand my opensuse has multiple packman repos laying around, I think that all need to be deleted except one for TW and one for Leap. Thanks all. I learn something new everyday at the forums!!
The original question was how to get the new, “improved” Pandora web application running in Leap 42.1. The original, classic Pandora interface had ran without problems until the day Pandora removed it from use. The new and improved Pandora has all the sophistication of a converted TRS-80 application and the new advertisements take up so much desktop space you will think your computer is possessed by an evil spirit. Everything that used to make Pandora a bit different, easy access to lyrics and artist information, is now hidden and takes extra clicks to view. This is supposed to be Pandora’s Spotify killer and it is easily the biggest flub of an interface upgrade this year. In addition, Pandora has cleverly made it impossible to find a CODEC to get the music to play in Leap 42.1. The advice from malcolmlewis to upgrade to Leap 42.2 is the only thing that worked for me.
