The settings for xmp-scrobbler are stored in xmplay.ini, look for DSP=[hex encoded settings].

at last, i finally figured out what was wrong

the plugin's login data was stored in my Saved Settings for individual tracks, overriding any changes i would make, and thus reverting my password

solved it by removing the plugin from all save states, and finally ticking the "Exclude from saved settings" box

whew...

Hello, I am having trouble scrobbling tracks using a cuesheet. It doesn't seem like anyone is working on this plugin anymore, but since it used to work in the past maybe it's possible to get it working again. Here is the log:
Code: [Select]

I attached the cuesheet too. As you can see it takes what is actually track-titles and uses them for artist name, and what it thinks are track titles is actually the end of the album "TITLE" specification and the name of the album with some spaces inbetween. It says also that the tracks are submitted successfully, as wrong as they may be, but they don't show up on my last.fm profile. I use xmplay 3.6.0.1. and xmp-scrobbler Pre-0.9.7. on Windows 7.

That looks like an error in parsing the cue sheet, as it shouldn't be echoing the upcoming titles either. Does it help if you remove all non-ASCII characters from the sheet?

I've run into this problem a few times and it's because the plugin is expecting a PERFORMER tag for each track. I just tried this:
Code: [Select]
PERFORMER "Manuel Göttsching"
TITLE "E2-E4"
FILE "01_E2-E4.mp3" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Manuel Göttsching"
    TITLE "Ruhige Nervosität"
    FLAGS DCP
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PERFORMER "Manuel Göttsching"
    TITLE "Gemässigter Aufbruch"
    FLAGS DCP
    INDEX 01 13:00:00
.
.
.

Which makes the plugin behave like so:
Code: [Select]
2012-04-23 10:06:41 [INFO] CUE sheet found, the current file contains 9 track(s).
2012-04-23 10:06:41 [INFO] The current track is "Ruhige Nervosität" by Manuel Göttsching.
2012-04-23 10:06:46 [INFO] Playback stopped.

Thanks, raina, that solves my problem :D It also explains why it sometimes worked in the past, since I usually use cuesheets on mixes with several performers.

[WARNING] Your login info is incorrect, please correct it in the plugin config.It just stopped working yesterday! Already tried to change my password to a new one, alas it still doesn't work. Is anyone else experiencing similar issues?

No problems here. Are you using Saved settings?

Yes, but never with saved DSP settings.

Can it successfully handshake with the Last.fm server?

[INFO] Successfully connected to the Last.fm server.Looks like it does...

Edit: Whatever.. Seems to work again... Weird!

Edit 2: Oh, how silly - Apparently there was indeed one saved setting with DSP settings which reset the password to an old one. Typing in the new password didn't seem to help at first since the new password was apparently not instantly taken into account.

No matter how much I play with it I haven't been able to get this to work after October.
Log's are saying it's submitting the track info but lastfm just isn't updating to show it.

I kinda think it's time someone updated this to use the new 2.0 api or at least 1.2.1 as 1.1 is pretty much dropped completely.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who is having these problems and I'd rather not have to use another mediaplayer because xmplay wont interact with lastfm anymore.
I used to use lastfm to pull over what track was currently playing on my livestreams but it's impossible to do now as it no longer updates.

Dear developers, I've been using the xmplay scrobbler since 2010, and xmplay for as long as I can remember. But since a few months I get this error regularly:

[INFO] The current playback was already submitted in the previous XMPlay execution.

Only one song will be submitted from when I start xmplay, and then I get that message. How to fix?..

Maybe your scrobbler cache broke at some point. Delete the file xmp-scrobbler.cache from XMPlay's directory and try again.

I have a problem which might be due to how the plugin recognizes musicbrainz info. It ends up scrobbling the wrong album if the song which is scrobbled is featured on multiple albums on last.fm. Does anyone have a solution?

The plugin should send the album information, if there's any in your tags. If there's no match on last.fm, it's their problem.

I guess i could give an specific example to help explain my problem better. I have the song audience killer loop by dir en grey which is featured on Vulgar, one of their albums. When i scrobble it might happen that it is instead scrobbled to another DNG album called Decade 2003-2007, even though the album in my library has Vulgar in the album tags.

I think the plugin is well aware of the right album and as saga said, should send the correct data to Last.fm. As such there's nothing to be done on the scrobbling end. Do you find that when using another player, you get the correct album displayed in Last.fm? If so, it must be because the rest of the world is probably using newer APIs by now and xmp-scrobbler should be updated or replaced to catch up.

Yes, as a matter of fact i use foobar2000 quite often and it's scrobbler component foo_audioscrobbler. After adjusting field remappings and removing musicbrainz tags from my files just in case, it scrobbles everything correctly. I'm pretty sure it is also using the most recent scrobbling API.

xmp-scrobbler will also send the MusicBrainz ID along with the other tags. I think Last.fm does its own lookup of the MBID and always uses the same entry on that list, regardless of what album you were actually playing. You can avoid this by removing the MBID from the tags, so Last.fm has to trust your artist/album/title info.

im having the same problem iris is having. i get the error message stating playback was submitted previously.

ive tried deleting the cache, didnt work.
ive tried reinstalling xmp-scrobbler, didnt work.
i tried with both 0.9.6 and 0.9.7pre, didnt work.

dont really know what more there is to try? even older versions? a completely fresh install of xmplay and xmp-scrobbler perhaps?

So it keeps saying that, for each track you play? What Windows do you have, and where did you delete the cache? Could you post a part of xmp-scrobbler.log?
