Hi Peke,
Are you able to send me some suggestions? Scrobbling still doesn't work.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi,
What does Log File say? For Me it works. Is it possible that you have multiple apps Scrobble?

Where do I find the log file? I can see the cache here.
Extensions\
MetadataCache\
Plugins\
Scripts\
Skins\
Trash\
MediaMonkey.ini
LastFM_Cache.dat
MM.DB
mediamonkey.m3u8
LastFM_Cache.dat.bak
milkdrop_config.ini
Extensions.ini


I'm not scrobbling (never have) from any other apps on this PC.

~groan~ Now I can't reply to your PM's?!?!?! I've tried twice and they're just sitting in my Outbox.

Failed PM reply:
Hi Peke,
MediaMonkey is installed on my work laptop. I have local admin access but I'm not sure whether I'll be able to contact you via this corporate version of Skype.
Skype for Business needs your contact in the format someone@domain.com.

Hello all,
I want to ask if there are any extension tools that can sync my entire play history to Last.FM? Or sync from a date range? I've been using MediaMonkey for a while now. Now I want it to sync my entire play history with my new last.fm account.

I know it's possible because I notice that I can set the last.fm scrobbler extension to cache mode for offline and it would sync later when I'm connected. So theorically, it could populate the LastFM_Cache.dat file with all my old play history and then sync it to last.fm.

Please let me know if there are tool to sync my play history. Thanks!

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.

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:

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...

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.

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,
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.

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 :)
