    The solution is fine but to complicated to us peasants…

      Thanks for the input : )
      I tried to make it easy, but it is still very technical, I’m thinking about making a Youtube video showing how to do it, as I imagine that would surely help.

      Did you change the “YOUR SESSION ID” in the second script to the ID you gathered?
      Which browser are you using?

      It’s quite sad, but it really does seem that they simply let thesixtyone die, nobody is working on it and many things are breaking such as the login and youtube integration. Maybe they cut funding on it? It seems that the company that takes care of thesixtyone is only worried about making iOS apps for kids now or something? : \

      I should have a video up by tomorrow, or later today.

    Uploaded video now, I know its rather quick and doesn’t have any voice overs, but I hope it helps some people out.

    Make sure to choose IE / Chrome / FF on the youtube annotations
    or use the links I provided, depending on which browser you want to be logged into.

    If you get your session ID from part 1 you can skip it and just do part 2 on all your browsers if you want to be logged into multiple browsers.

    Thanks! Yupp, did change the session id and using Chrome dev. I’ll give your video a shot this afternoon.

    Totally works! Great find Cody 🙂 Another trick to keep this working would be to create a bookmark that has the javascript as the link. If you ever need to get your session working again, just click the bookmark. This fix is going to bring me back to thesixtyone!

      Great to hear, in the script I did set the cookie to last 10 years, but people still clear their cookies every now and then.

      If anyone wants to hit me up on thesixtyone here’s my link:

    Bloody Brilliant! I enjoy thesixtyone, I have discovered and purchased a metric tonne of great indie music there and yet it is a ghost ship (I often purchase via Bandcamp if the song is not available directly from thesixtyone). I know there’s history and all, but someone is keeping the thing going so it must be making some money? Why would they not try and rebuild the brand? Anyway thanks for the information mate you are officially followed. I live again!

      Thanks, it’s just unfortunate to see that it’s not even kept going anymore really. It seems that half the songs haven’t been playing because any songs on the audio2 server haven’t been loading since it hasn’t been responding. It makes me wonder if they’re not paying the bill anymore for their Amazon cloud service, or what’s going on, as well as simple things like the login going down hill.

      I know I saw a video on Youtube, that made it sound like the site was created by some college students, I’m not sure how accurate that or the information on Wikipedia is, but if you check thesixtyone’s facebook it seems that all their interest is now in making iOS apps like dinosaur [educational] games for little kids, and maybe another music venture on iOS.

      It bothers me because I swear I’ve seen your name somewhere before you posted on here, or maybe it’s just dejavu?
