Pandora Music Replay And Download Script

To use this script, you need to install a browser extension that supports user scripts, such as Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey. Then, you can install the Pandora Music Replay and Download script and enjoy Pandora Music without any restrictions.

Method 2: Web Browser Addon

The easiest way to download music from Pandora would be with a browser extension or add-on. Video DownloadHelper is a browser extension that allows you to download videos and audio from the web. Here, we will use it to download audio from Pandora. 

Video DownloadHelper is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Once you have the extension installed, head over to Pandora website and start playing any track. Then click on the extension icon at the top right corner. 

From there, you can select an audio file to download. Usually, the one at the button is the track that is currently playing. When the file is downloaded, you need to rename the file because it will be titled as the web page title. 

Method 3: Web Browser Developer Tools

If you don’t want to install anything, just use your web browser to download music from Pandora with the Developer Tools features. It may seem a little complicated for those who never used Developer Tools, but it is not. 

Step 1. Go to the Pandora website and play any track that you want to download. 

Step 2. Right click and select Inspect. You can also press F12 on Windows or Option + ⌘ + J on macOS.

Step 3. Within the Developer Tools, click on “Network” and then “Media”. If there is no results, reload the page and start playing again. 

Step 4. Copy the URL displayed and open it in a new tab. From there, you can right click to save the audio file on your computer hard drive. 

In this way, you still need to rename the file downloaded. You can play the next track to download another one. 

If some cases, you will still see no results even after the refresh. In that case, click “All” instead of “Media”. From All results, you can sort them by size from the largest to the smallest. The audio download URL is usually larger in size, so you can find it in the top results.
