Couldn't find this in the forums, though I may have missed it..

...I am working with the Last.FM plugin and my slim (and WWW
interface) seem only to display the streaming URL and not
actually any of the artist info. This makes it difficult to
tell whether I'm on the right station ("What's all this bird
chirping on the Black Metal station?"). In other words, I get
"Now Playing: http://mp3.last.fm/Session=AWSGQetc.etc."

Any pointers welcomed, thanks.

[Oh, 6.5b1, Ubuntu]

Hi Chip,
How recent is your 6.5 version?
This was working correctly for me as of a week or two ago, perhaps
something has changed.

Do you not see the track information anywhere?
Is it displayed correctly in the LastFM plugin menu/webpage?

Quite recent, as I have slimdevices in my repository list. I am
doing it now and will report if it changes anything. However,
I've never seen the plugin work for me, and it's been about 6
weeks that I've paid attention to it.

On the WWW page (showing what's playing in the right frame) is
also the stream URL.

No, the LastFM Plugin web page.
There's a link to it on the left side of the SlimServer web home page
usually, or under the drop down menu in Fishbone.
The URL in the playlist never gets replaced (don't think this is
possible), but the 'now playing' should be.

...sorry to have not replied to this in so long - time and technical difficulties. Now that my slim and I have returned to form: I still have this problem. I can navigate the LAstFM plugin on either the WWW interface or my sb. I connect to a 'station' and I get a message about "Waiting for LastFM track info..." but then I end up with a URL.

For example, I just clicked on my 'Station: globaltags/ambient' link and something ambient plays ~5 seconds later (good start). The screen (both WWW and sb) indicate that it's waiting for track details and then I get:

"http://192.168.1.104:9000/Default/songinfo.html?item=31550&player=00%3A04%3A20%3A05%3A98%3A24"

I can't tell what's actually playing. Am I missing something?

I have last night's 6.5, Ubuntu. BTW, I really appreciate seeing the buffer filling messages as it loads...I wish the non-LastFM channels through slimserver would provide that.

There was a change in the split-scanner release that
A) stopped the plugin from getting track info
B) stopped displaying titles in the 'now playing' screen.

I've just posted a fix for A on my website, but B needs fixing in
SlimServer.
Until then you'll be able to see the track info in the LastFM menu or
web page, but not in 'now playing'.
