Hi All,

This is an update to my previous post (which I cannot edit or reply to for some reasons - sorry) and contains more findings.

I use soundcloud, deezer and tracks from my library as sources.

Description of the problem:
- The tracks from the library are scrobbled without any problems.
- Tracks from deezer when played in the standard deezer web-application are scrobbled as well
- Tracks from deezer when played using the deezer-plugin are not scrobbled. This is independent of which server I use and includes playing those from "mysqueezebox" i.e. not using any of the local servers.
- Some tracks from soundcloud can be scrobbled, others not. I am not yet sure whether this is a consistent property of the track or can change.

Furthermore, sometimes deezer tracks are visible as "Listening now" on my LastFM page, but get erased when another track is played. This is not reproducible.

I dug a bit further into the matter and enabled debugging for the relevant plugins (deezer, Audioscrobbler, soundcloud). See the logs below, especially the following lines:

[12-06-02 10:45:43.9676] Slim::Plugin::AudioScrobbler::Plugin::submitNowPla ying (569) Protocol Handler didn't return an artist and title for http://ec-media.soundcloud.com/oC6tj...Kj2WerMZl78%3D, ignoring

[12-06-02 10:49:02.6246] Slim::Plugin::AudioScrobbler::Plugin::submitNowPla ying (569) Protocol Handler didn't return an artist and title for deezer://5146184.mp3, ignoring

Hypothesis: The problem is in transmitting artist and title from the source-plugin to scrobbler.

Note that perfect information was available for the deezer file ([12-06-02 10:49:00.7497]) while no information was visible for the file from soundcloud.

Any help on how to take it from here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
