Spotify has launched a dedicated Ubuntu player some time ago... but it doesnt make any difference to me as my country doesn't have spotify...

though it does have many music streaming services of its own! Nuvola players also doesn't include those services... I tried fogger but the services need flash support...

How can I get any of them working on Ubuntu?

Note: i am using spotify as an example( to indicate a family of online music streeming services), coz spotify has a standalone app.I DO NOT WANT TO USE SPOTIFY

Possibly by using a VPN or getting a SSH shell account somewhere and use it as a proxy with the -D flag.

I'm sorry I don't understand why not use Spotify of Nuvola? Do you want to play local music files too? – Daniel Holm May 7 '13 at 11:12
