Re: Last.fm scrobbler 1.0.2.12 errors submitting tracks

Post by DaKo »

I noticed today that I have the same problem ... The last successful transfers to Last.fm were on Tuesday, the 24. of March (according to the Last.fm site). Could this issue be related to Internet Explorer 8 as it's the only application I installed last week? I read in another thread that it caused some problems (it seems to block the connection). Here ist an excerpt from the log:

Yes, there were several topics opened about this. (scrobbler/podcasts not working after installing IE8) Supposedly the bug should be fixed in build 1228 of MM, though I'd recommend jumping straight to 1229.

Just upgraded to 1229 myself and it still fails with the same problem :(

Well, it seems it isn't fixed yet... I installed build 1228 on Sunday and this happened to me on Tuesday. Build 1229 doesn't change anything. I hope this will be fixed soon.

Sorry, I was just posting it to prove something really was changed.

I'd reopen the bug, but I can't reproduce the problem - I have IE8 installed but scrobbling and podcatching works fine..

Well, this is really weird ... I installed IE 8 last week and scrobbling worked. On Sunday I installed build 1228 and it seemed to work until Tuesday (according to my Last.fm profile). Do you have XP or Vista? It seems that only people with Vista have this problem.

EDIT:
I tried it with the standalone plugin from the Last.fm forums:
http://www.lastfm.de/forum/34905/_/335191/4#f4990894

It says it's connected but it can't read the track (maybe an issue related to changes in MediaMonkey).

I'm using Windows 7. I don't think the standalone plugin has worked with MM for some time now.

Found somewhat of a workaround. Open MM, autotag say an album or even just a song, any tracks now played LastFM scrobbling will now work. Albeit only for as long as MM is open, once you close MM you'll have to autotag something again next time you open MM to get scrobbling working again.

Vista Ultimate 32-bit
IE 8
MM 3.1.0.1229

Sweet! This worked for me as well.

You don't even have to accept the Auto-tag values... just initiate the "Auto-tag from Web" option for a single song and then hit Cancel once the auto-tag dialogue pops up.

I can confirm the success of the "workaround" as well. It should be clear now that it has to do with IE 8; it seems that the permissions for the internet aren't "loaded" until you open the auto-tag option. I hope this will be fixed.

Hi,

For those of your who are experiencing the scrobbler problem in builds 1228/1229: can you confirm whether or not podcasting exhibits the same problem (and if yes, does the workaround solve the issue)?

Thx.

Can you post a pdocast? I normally don't listen to them :) .

I can confirm that I have the same problem with podcasts as with other tracks, and that the same workaround works for both. That's with IE 8.0, MM 3.1.0.1229 and LfmS 1.0.2.12.
