audioscrobbler integration

slightly related to this is......would there be any possibility of exporting playlists in a similar format to how audioscrobbler would read them.....

i use mediamonkey for getting music together for a radio show.....and exporting the playlists in right format for audioscrobbler would be fantastic.

Waiting, Psyx. I really like the idea of the last.fm player, but would much rather do the same kind of thing based on scrobbler recommendations with MM. let me know how it goes!

I like that idea so much that i am going to make a script that i will call it Scrobbler DJ.
It will act like AutoDJ but it will add tracks based on AudioScrobler recomendations

I will keep you informed....

its a really nice suggestion indeed...besides, i really think more should be done in respect to these services that suggest music: the support for shoutcast streaming radio was a step in the right direction, but as i see it the music business is moving towards streaming more and more...theres last.fm, pandora.com (which I strongly recomend) and is not long before satelite radio wins ground on cell phones and that sort of things...so keeping up with the trend might give MM a new competitive edge. I find this suggestion a nice one...it would work like auto-dj only that the songs played would be similar...not a trance right after a mmm...emerson lake and palmer song.

sorry for going off topic there... :-)

Better last.fm integration would be super.

The audioscrobber plugin tells last.fm what you play, but there is nothing in MM that interfaces with last.fm.

Great idea, i discovered last.fm recently and it rocks!

I just found a project for another (linux) player for this suggestion...

http://www.silverscripting.com/blog/arc ... /projects/

The script was done with python.

Even look at http://amarok.kde.org/index.php?set_alb ... _photo.php . There is a list of suggested song in the left part of the picture. These suggested songs are based on the current track, the audioscorbbler similar artists and your contont on your hdd.

Yes, difficult. Great idea but!

Another idea is to just use the last.fm player and when you hear music by similar artists then you just get their music.

by Peke » Fri Dec 30, 2005 6:21 am

That will be difficult to make but not impossible as it uses LastFM Site for search and info about tracks that will be imported which is at the current state of MM URL Search features not possible.
