I think the re-design was meant to make the site more phone/tablet-friendly, as this had been introduced as a factor in Google page rankings, and they needed to maintain the site hits to retain the ad clicks.

It's one of those things that I would just never stop using and would probably be low-key sad about if it went under. I've got like 13 years' worth of listening on there.

Also, for the recent noughties poll I was looking back over my loved tracks from 2007 or so and there were loads of great tunes I'd completely forgotten about

biggest stats gripe atm is that the iphone app will sometimes scrobble a song 20 times after i listen to it once

btw if anyone wants to add me - last.fm/user/jdevine28

And haven't once played a record and queued it up on Spotify so it won't be missing from my data.

just fyi you can use openscrobbler.com to do it without having to waste the time/bandwidth

signed a guy who used to go to great lengths to scrobble vinyl and mp3 player tracks

I had no idea that existed - cheers.

I use universalscrobbler.com to log my cd/vinyl listening.

Was disappointed to find that the new Apple Music app doesn’t tell last.fm what’s been played on my phone - iTunes did.

Who am I kidding, I LOVE knowing my stats. And haven't once played a record and queued it up on Spotify so it won't be missing from my data. Nope.

Haha. That's a dark secret but yep.

Too true. Color me meticulous.

I haven't been able to scrobble anything through iTunes for 2 years....anyone else have that issue? the scribbler still pops up every time I open the program, it just....doesn't do anything

frogbs, Thursday, 26 March 2020 21:06 (six months ago) link

Mine hadn't worked for a long time, either. Since switching laptops I've abandoned it altogether (iTunes) and haven't missed it for a moment.

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Thursday, 26 March 2020 21:23 (six months ago) link

had a laptop with iTunes until last year, and it was working just fine (maybe too well: it double-scrobbled every played track)

I'm still on this thing. If anybody would like to add me I'll add you back

"signed a guy who used to go to great lengths to scrobble vinyl and mp3 player tracks"

I listen to a lot of SACDs with 5.1 surround sound. I have evolved this little dance where I hit play on my media center so that the rip of the album starts playing and scrobbles, and then I quickly switch the stereo over to my SACD player so I can actually enjoy the music.

glad i'm not alone in my obsessiveness!

two months pass...

fyi I was having some wifi issues on OS X, most obvious symptom was poor videoconference quality. turns out the AudioScrobbler thing I had in the menubar was causing them.

in case anyone is still using AudioScrobbler and having network issues on OS X. it was very obvious for me:

1. open terminal, type: ping 8.8.8.8
2. ping times reliably went up every thirty seconds or so
3. close AS
4. ping times were fine

lukas, Monday, 22 June 2020 01:12 (three months ago) link

I’m not using AS but last.fm in general has been wonky the past couple of days, there’s been a few hours where it would just suddenly stop scrobbling or my charts would disappear. The missing scrobbles do come back later on though

Been flaky for me today.

Dan Worsley, Friday, 24 July 2020 19:17 (two months ago) link

There seem to be two different Spotify widgets now (or there have been for a while) - Spotify Scrobbling and Spotify Playback (the old one). Lost two days of scrobbling as a result (I'm devastated can you not tell) - no communication about this from last.fm that I noticed, had to go to Settings and the Applications tab to enable it.
