Hi Yagood

Version 0.4b seems to have done the trick.

I can now submit from work and home and it no longer makes my FF and TB crash.

Well done and thanks again.

Cheers
Paul

have you thought about adding a button to the scrobbler options to either clear or delete the cache file? It would be useful to me because it seems like I have to periodically delete the cache file for submissions to work.

I would rather spend time on fixing this cache bug than adding such button :) This will be my priority now, because it is indeed very annoying...

I've put version 0.4b up on the support site.

I know this is a bit off-topic but I just saw a comment on the Support site that was a bit like a phishing try. Have a look here, it's the long comment on the bottom.

Well.. i have found a bug in the last version of the plugin. I heard about 10 or 13 complete songs, but when i go into last.fm it says that only i have played the songs for an average between 40-50 seconds.

Thanks.

If you want i upload the log here: http://jairmoreno.googlepages.com/Log.txt

Thanks

I'm not sure that I understand. Your log looks fine, all songs between 16:43 and 20:10 were submitted successfully. Maybe there's some bug, but I don't know what exactly do you mean by "played the songs for an average between 40-50 seconds" - could you be more specific? Also note that sometimes there's a delay before tracks appear on your profile page after being submitted - that's Last.fm issue. You could try observing "tracks played" counter on your profile page, but that's not too reliable either recently. Please write more about problem.

When using wav-writer or another encoder, xmp-scrobbler obviously sends the info to Last.fm. Is there any way to avoid this behavoir? (And I mean other than manually removing the plugin from the DSP-section :P). Or is there no way for the plugin to determine the output-device? In the latter case, perhaps a request to Ian ::)?

BTW, thanks for developing this plugin! It's working very good over here :).

Hm, I don't see a simple way of determining output device in xmp-scrobbler. But instead of removing the plugin, you can just disable it - it'll prevent any data from being sent to Last.fm.

Thanks. More updates to come - I've already finished cache manager module, which will hopefully fix any issues with cached submissions, I'm now testing it, so far works OK and it'll be included in 0.5. Next thing on to-do list is "include/exclude directories" feature. Xmp-scrobbler is a simple piece of software, it has a simple task to accomplish, but if anyone would want to see any more features - I'm opened to suggestions.

Hehe. When did open source become the natural development for every soft project?

I've cleaned up code so that it can go public now without major embarrassment - version 0.5 will be released with the source code. Thanks for asking.

Sharing the source code has been already requested before, but I did not give any specific time frame then, so that's why the question was asked I guess.

There isn't any way for the plugin to know exactly where the output is going, but I guess one could detect the fact that it's not normal playback by the fact that the data is arriving more quickly than it normally would :)

Yo yo yo

Just started using this plugin, works great for my mp3s, but for wma files it seems to be sending the album name as the title and nothing for the album (I have all the tags filled out)

I know that Ian updated xmplay so that the wma tags were properly showing in the libraray, but that doesn't seem to have filtered down to audioscrobbler for whatever reason. Guessing that xmplay doesn't update the plugin properties or audioscrobbler cheks a different field or something  ???

Cheers for the good work  8) ;D

Aaah, that's just my short memory, I forgot to include it in 0.4. I'll fix WMA tags stuff and include it in 0.5. Thanks for reminding and sorry for inconvenience.

Have you ticked the "enable" box in the plugin config? Also, what do the last 20 or so lines say in your log file. You can view the log file from the plugin config dialog.

My opinion that products SHOULD NOT be open sourced (it is lame in fact), but libraries and technologies MUST BE. It always was that way and should remain the same forever. Or we still lived in before-stone-age (: I see plugin as a library, because it extends functions of XMPlay and it is not self-complete product. Another example is firefox. I'm absolutely not interested in its source. But I've modified Gecko a bit for my needs when I used it for my project.
