Hi,
I would advise that you register and post Support ticket in order to get into more details and try to resolve this?

Only two cases where MM cache songs is when Cache only is enabled (Yellow icon) and when plugin can't access Last.FM site and login there.

Hi Peke,

I deleted the Lastfm cache file and then restarted MM, but then the cache file gets instantly re-created once I play a song on MM.
The cache file has the same content as before, and the number of cached files displayed on MM keeps growing (619 by now).

I noticed there is a "Clean cache" button on MM in the lastfm service section, but it doesn't do anything, sadly.

Do you have any other idea?

Thanks!

Hi,
It is very possible that Last.FM rejected some of your tracks to be scrobbled and MM then put them in Cache for sending it next connection.

As you have "Tracks cached = 2161" I would suggest that you close MM -> Go to c:\users\<USERNAME>\Appdata\Roaming\Mediamonkey and rename or delete Last.FM cache file (LastFM_Cache.dat) and then start MM again to see if it will scrobble? Also check if Now Playing is updated on Last.FM.

Please let us know the results.

I'm having the same problem - Last_fm plugin is enabled but the status message is Failed (cached Track).

MM version 4.1.29.1910

Looks like it hasn't been working for a while, Tracks cached = 2161

Hi Peke,

Thanks for your reactivity!

I'm using the normal version of MM.

Are you using normal or portable version of MM?

Hi,

MediaMonkey lastfm plugin has stopped working for me since the end of March, apparently for no reason.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin, but it doesn't change anything at all.
The lastfm icon continues to appear on MM though..

I'm using the latest version of MM (4.1.29.1910).

I'm getting the following message in Option>Lastfm service>Statistics
Service status: Failed (cached Track)
Tracks scrobbled: 0/0
Now playing shared: 0/0
Tracks cached: 544


Could somebody please help me?

Thank you in advance :)

Thanks a lot for your answer & reactivity.
I dis-installed, encountered a DB issue upon re-install, have to solve that & will be back.
Thanks.

Hi,
Yes, I tested last night, it works, you can also check my profile from signature.

Double Scrobble is also counted if you use MMA and MMW, make sure that you use latest MMA beta for Scrobbling.

Thanks a lot for your feed-back, Peke.

I did not activate "overlapping" Scrobbles, just re-activated iTunes and WMP to check that LastFM scrobbling worked (I'm a new user there).

So I guess I have to uninstall LastFM Scrobbles, un- & re-install MM Scrobbler script (and possibly MM too to be on the safe side).
The only limit I see is that's the config I had prior to installing LastFM scrobblers, and I didn't get anything working...

Let's give it a try !

Can you just confirm that you are scrobbling with LastFM on MM and MMA, and that it works ?
(side note: I'm using MM Gold, but my understanding is this has nothing to do with that :o)

Hi,
Last.FM doe not allow overlapping scrobbles. So if you are Scrobbling from iTunes you can't scrobble from Winamp or MediaMonkey or,..... Only exceptions are Mobile device players that have specific Mobile ID (?) that can double Now Playing info, but not scrobbles.

MMW plugin is standalone plugin that scrobble to Last.FM, same goes with MM5 which uses newer protocol but result is same.

few additional infos, just in case:
. I'm running latest version of MM (4.1.28.1905) and Lastfm Scrobbler;
. Scrobbler works with both iTunes and Windows Media - but not MM :(

sidenote: Lastfm offers 2 Windows Scrobblers (!?!) : Lastfm Scrobbler and Lastfm Desktop Scrobbler.
I installed one, then the other.
The one working with other music players is Desktop Scrobbler.
Though I wonder: which should be Scrobbling MM ? Whether the MM script is autonomous from those Lastfm tools, or interacts with one or the other ?

Thanks again for your help...

(the only thing you can do is turn the toolbar icon gree/orange/red... ;)

If anaybody had a clue, most welcome !

Thanks,

it's not working anymore :(
It just stopped, I installed the plugin on another computer to check if there was a problem with my device, but it doesn't work on either device :cry:

Hi,
Create call for Last.fm to import whole MMW history was tried when I was creating the plugin, but problem is that Last.FM blocks any scrobbles in past if newer exist, also they flag as spam many pass scrobbles at time, so such feature is omitted from plugin due the Last.FM design.

I have 139646 playcounts in MMW over past 16 years and would certainly like to have them all passed to Last.fm, but unfortunately without ability to do so.
