View Full Version : Scrobbling RadioIO adverts to Last.FM?

I listen a lot to the Real Jazz stream from Radio IO, and the tracks dutifully get scrobbled [what a lovely word this is!] to Last.FM.

The only problem is that the adverts and sponsors' messages get listed too. Now I know that I can buy a "Soundpass" for commercial-free listening, but I'm too tight to do this. Is there a way to block "tracks" from showing up on Last.FM.

Apart from not wanting "Pepsi Throwup" and "Webex" in my track listing, the kids's High School Musical tracks don't exactly add to the street-cred :o)

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Bob

Unfortunately not, how would you detect an ad vs a regular track?

How about increasing the minimum duration for a track (was 30 seconds last time I looked)?
Scrobbling of adverts has come up before

The length checking code isn't used for radio scrobbling. Really your only option is to disable radio scrobbling I think.
