I have created a playlist on my Last.fm account.
Is it possible to play this Last.fm playlist on my Boom and if so how?
Cheers

Did you look at this thread?

More integrated functionality is in the pipeline, but I can access my playlists as discussed here:

Ahah, I missed that thread. I didn't realise you could play Last.fm playlists via Squeeze devices.

Lets Raaaawk!

What on earth does Last.fm have against Led Zeppelin (or Led Zeppelin have against Last.fm). None of their tracks seem to be streamable.

Thanks for the replies.
Unfortunately I cannot even play the playlist on the Last.fm site now, never mind cutting and pasting the 'playlist' website address via the 'Tune in URL' box on the squeezebox server site.
It starts to 'play' the playist but resets to zero after about 7 seconds.
I have a 'free' account via the Logitech Boom - maybe after a while they disable the functionality to do this?
Very Frustrating.

You do know that the playlist has to include over 45 playable tracks by at least 15 artists to be able to play don't you? It might be a requirement forced on Last.fm by the industry.

Otherwise let me know you username and the name of your playlist and I'll see if I can play it.

The ability to listen to playlists is a subscriber only feature:

Hey MC, how's it going? Will check out the playlist over the weekend, Lynyrd Skynyrd are a guilty pleasure of mine - though you're missing Pearl Jam - Alive IMHO.... ;-)

I was able to play playlists up until very recently - If Last.fm have taken this away - they could at least have informed us about it.
Thanks all the same.
