View Full Version : Couple of problems - lastfm and what was that tune?

I just set this up, and the last.fm account is a new one. It's weird, if I am playing a song on Tune.in and look at the last.fm website it says "scrobbling now" but never commits the track. If I play a song in my music library (an mp3 or something) it scrobbles it properly. Is there a setting or something I am doing wrong?

2nd issue LMS 7.9.1 'stable' - I can't enable 'what was that tune' i check the box, restart the app, and it's not checked.

thanks again.

Yes, you have to got the AudioScrobbler settings to tell it to scrobble
radio content, too. By default this is disabled as many people only want
to scrobble what they like to listen to, as to not mess up their
listening profile. If you only care about what you did listen to, then
you can disable that behaviour. If you want to use Last.fm information
to eg. create customized tracks based on your listening behaviour, then
you should leave it disabled.

Are you running LMS on a QNAP by chance? If not, what else? Check your
server.log, too.

on last.fm that makes sense.

edited (my iPad can VPN into home, and I'm at work - Grabbed a bit of the log and posted it)

That's what happens when I check the box and restart the server.

Server is Windows 10 Pro latest build

You do it from LMS web interface
Settings/last.fm AudioScrobbler/Scrobble Internet Radio

In the old old days AudioScrobbler/Last.fm did not want plays of tracks that were not selected by the end-user to be counted. There is even a separate flag to include when scrobbling so called "Internet radio" to indicate that being the source so that they could discard it (but show it in the Now Playing) area.

Now you make the choice and last.fm doesn't really care.

Thanks got last.fm squared away...

What Was That Tune still seems broken - is it possible something is down that delivers that plugin? I ask because in one of my earlier installs I installed it without issue.

I've now made a VM to test a fresh install of LMS to install just the "what was that tune" plugin. Same issue, Official LMS or 7.9.1 stable.

Steps to recreate:
1. install LMS (either official or community edition)
2. Official only - enable 3rd party plug ins
3. Check box for "what was that tune"
4. Restart server as requested by LMS

5. Get this as a result:
https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArZ2KnVG8vwYq8h7PNcr_pWJJp0QXQ

From here on out you can click enable and restart as much as you want, it will just keep on saying "updated plugins available", with it unchecked once it restarts

As a comparison I did enable the PlayHLS plugin, which works. I then went looking for the plugin I find it (PlayHLS) here: C:\ProgramData\Squeezebox\Cache\InstalledPlugins\P lugins

Shouldn't I expect "what was that tune" to show up there as well?


Also is there a place to learn about making plugins? do you need to know perl?


Thanks Again!

Could you please send me a copy of your server.log.zip file
(Settings/Information)?

Checked your log. Make sure you fully re-load the settings page before you try to enable a plugin. What browser are you using? I'm seeing warnings about you trying to submit an outdated copy of the plugins form.

Thanks for looking at this. I'm not sure what you mean by fully re-load the settings page? When I check the box, I hit apply and it immediately comes back with a box that asks if I want to restart now or later, clicking 'now' it immediately reloads with the box unchecked again. I've tried waiting 1 minute after each of the following steps: Page load, Checked box, restart dialog showing. with no change. I have tried Edge and Firefox.

Just tried applying the settings and clicking 'restart later' and then I exited the server via the tray icon and restarted it. same results - no longer checked.

Oh my... I'm sorry for the hassle: when I did the last plugin update
(for a different plugin) I accidentally changed the wrong checksum,
causing the verification of What Was That Tune? to fail. That should be
fixed now. Please give it another try.

And thanks for the heads up!
