I have an interesting issue - I can't seem to stream from grooveshark HTML5 from IOS devices (tried Iphone 4 / 4S and iPad3 on IOS5.1 and 6.0) - but only through slingshot.

If I use 3G it works fine, if I use a 3G card in a WiFi router (telecom XT) then it streams fine - but if I connect through WiFi to mu Slingshot ADSL then whilst the site loads and you can get a track list, none of the streams will play 

this is really frustrating - more so by the fact that the same site html5.grooveshark.com works fine from my laptop - so it's not the site or ISP per se, and it's not the IOS devices - it's just IOS devices through slingshot!

anyone offer any advice?  Note I've posted here as it appears to be ISP specific (no problems on Telecom XT - or Telecom ADSL)

(oh I've tried both the safari and chrome browsers on IOS)

I had never heard of Grooveshark before but it seems to be working as intended.

I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 6. Connected via wifi to Slingshot AYCE.

I went to grooveshark.com and it redirects to mobile.grooveshark.com

I get the option to download an app, or go to their beta browser based link.

I click on the link and it takes me to http://html5.grooveshark.com/#!/

I click on Pop and it starts playing a Coldplay song.



Do you use a custom DNS server? Maybe that could be the problem?
