Hi

I seem to be having an issue in that the script recognizes and logs when a track as been played within the limit on track repeats within a certain timeframe, but after the line GenerateRecentArtist in the log, no artists are ever found (ie it does not record what artists were played recently), which often results in too much of the same artist (and I have do not repeat same artist at two days). What is going on? I have windows 7 btdubs

Hi

Thank you very much for this script. It is excellent! I love it even more because i used Last.fm almost exclusively for creating my music library. And to have this play all similar artist together is just plain awesome!

Thanks :)

I don't usually post, but I had to thank you for this add on for MediaMonkey. I absolutely love it. It makes me so much happier that I have stumbled upon MediaMonkey, it is making my home music experience so much more enjoyable. Thank you so much, and I hope you will continue to support this add on and potentially consider making more add ons.

I can't remove artists and tags from favorites.

I tried to edit LastFMNode.vbs.ini but it is empty and it's size is zero bytes. Deleting it doesn't help.

Strangely enough, if I start MM as administrator, the Last.FM Node favorites list is empty.

win7/vista? are you running MM 4 ?

sounds like the script is installed to your user profile instead of all users, you might try looking under your user profile folder (uncheck hide system/hidden files)

Windows Vista, MM 3.2.4.

You were right, that was exactly what had happened. The .ini was in my user profile folder. I edited it -> problem solved. Thanks!

I tried the other alternatives (Last.fm DJ, Scrobbler DJ) but they don't seem to fetch anything. Glad to see this one actually does what it says on the tin! Nice work.

Small issue but I'm just wondering, is there any way for the node's text to just display "Last.FM Node" instead of "Last.FM Node (Artist - Track)". I'd like to get rid of the huge horizontal scrollbar in the Media Tree that this creates.

open the lastfmnode.vbs file with note pad and comment out inside the sub updatecaption()


Code: Select all
Sub UpdateCaption()
'   If SDB.IniFile.BoolValue(Prefs,"Enabled") = True Then
'     SDB.Objects("LastFMNode").Caption = "Last.FM Node" &_
'       " (" & SDB.Player.CurrentSong.ArtistName &_
'       " - " & SDB.Player.CurrentSong.Title & ")"
'     SDB.MainTree.Refresh
'   End If
End Sub

you can post them if you like, I don't have any immediate plans to update anything, but if I do I'll take a look at adding your changes.

Hi,

First of all, thanks for the great plugin. It has served me well for years. You probably know this already, but now it seems it's broken due to last.fm changing of the API.

This it the log:
Code: Select all
05/10/2011 18:46:55: GenerateRecentArtists: begin
05/10/2011 18:46:55:   TooSoonList :>

05/10/2011 18:46:55: >> fixurl() entered with: Little Sister Leaving Town

05/10/2011 18:46:55:  all else failed, adding random track
05/10/2011 18:46:56: << DJ event: finished


Basically, what seems to be happening is that Last.fm really doesn't return anything. If you go to their website, the official API address is now http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0 (was 1.0) and the call structure seems to be different as well.

Any chance you could update the script?

it still works fine for me, but it looks like there is simply no similar tracks (yet) for that song

http://www.last.fm/music/Tanita+Tikaram ... n/+similar

It is either too new, or not popular enough, or last fm has not generated the similar tracks data yet.
