How to create a free Groove Shark desktop player in  2 easy steps

Groove Shark is a free streaming audio service that allows you to play music in a browser window. The company also offers a paid VIP service that offers an Adobe Air desktop application so that you can play music outside of your browser. Follow the steps below to save yourself $3 a month (especially useful considering how temperamental Groove Shark can be)

Here’s how to build your own Groove Shark desktop player in just a few minutes with Mozilla Prism.

1. Download & install Mozilla Prism from Mozilla Labs

http://prism.mozillalabs.com/

Prism is an application that lets you split web applications out of your browser and run them directly on your desktop

2. Set your URL

Set http://listen.grooveshark.com/ as the URL you would like to use for your new desktop application.
