Is there a reason to have a proxy configuration part in the plugin preferences? Wouldn't it be possible to use the config from the general "Network settings"?

Would it be posible to add an option to enable submitting tracks from Audio CDs even if "Only submit tracks from the Media Library" is enabled.

I'm not sure if it's possible to identify tracks from Audio CDs. I'll have a look at the SDK.

Getting bad auth messages like others. The last.fm page says the submission server is up. Wondered if anyone else is seeing these issues?

No, everything works fine for me.

Yes and No. Proxy settings are not a part of the public SDK.

What's the purpose of the common setting then? The foosic and freedb clients happily use the proxy settings from the common part (as far as I know, they surely would not get out to the net without that). Of course they are not open source, but foosion generally gives hints for developers, maybe you could ask him about this issue? Not that this preference setting would disturb me, I just feel that it's too redundant.

The proxy settings from the Networking page are used for HTTP accesses through the foobar2000 filesystem API which only supports GET operations at the moment. That is all that a freedb client needs. The foosic client on the other hand does not use HTTP at all: the foosic submission protocol is based on UDP, so proxy settings are meaningless there.

Tis a little late for that response. It's been working fine since Friday night.

This doesn't seem to work for me. It just says "Not submitting. Cache contains 1 tracks.", "Not submitting. Cache contains 2 tracks."....

[Edit] Works now, uninstalled the last.fm player  [\edit]

Have uninstalled last.fm player.
Nevertheless (it seems I haven't seen this error message):
Quote
Startup time : 0:06.969426
Handshaking: Client up to date.
Submit interval set to 1 seconds.
Handshake successful.
Submitting 10 of 55 cached tracks to Audioscrobbler...

Audiscrobbler ver. 1.3.4
Yesterday it worked fine, but then i switched off my inet-connection.  And before I started today, in the cache there were 42 tracks.
-------
Addon: after a couple of experiments, I found, that my error appears if and only if:
1. I start foobar2000 and in the cache there is a number of tracks
2. My internet-connection is on
Whatever I do after that, the error will be.
But if I delete foo_audioscrobbler.dll, start foobar without it, remove its settings (the window asked me to do it), then place it back into the components folder, and my connection is on while running foobar - all will be ok.
I often need to switch my inet-connection off, and if foobar is still playing, the cache will be not empty. And when I switch inet connection on, there will be the error described above.
P.S. Sorry for my English

If the ARTIST tag has multiple values only the first value in the tag seems to be submitted to Audioscrobbler. For instance:

ARTIST = Joaquin Phoenix; Reese Witherspoon
TITLE = Jackson

Where the ARTIST tag is rendered as Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon in Foobar appears like this on Last.fm:
Quote
Joaquin Phoenix – Jackson

After what period of time does last.fm send the info to the website? Is it after a minute of playing a track? or after the track is completed or is it 50% of the way through? The reason I ask is because I want to get my playcount % the same as the audioscrobbler plugin, so stats look a bit more accurate when comparing.

The Audioscrobbler plugin submits the entry after 50% or four minutes of playing the track - whatever comes first.

I too get bad authorization with 1.3.4. Restarting foobar2000 helps, but as I see from this thread plugin supposed to do reauth himself. More details on my setup that causes bad auth: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=48201.

Hey, this seems like a really good tool, but I was wondering . . . I have the official software from Last.fm that does all this. I was wondering if there would be any added or noticeable benefit to switching to this plugin. I'm sure it probably allows you to do more with TAGZ . . .

You don't need to have the official software installed or running, saving your system resources.

Is it possible to make Audioscrobbler submit information from shoutcast streams? I really miss that feature.

I don't think it has something to do with shoutcast but with missing tags. Both artist and title information have to be present for a track to be submitted.

I put shoutcast as example. Generally it's true for any http stream.
Foobar gets titles from http streams dynamically, that’s why streams should be treated differently by strobber.

Hi Florian,
lately both my dsl and phone line are down, so I'm using a (slooow) gprs connection with my cell phone.
The program I run for submitting the tracks played on my iPod (YamiPod) works fine.
On the foobar side instead, foo_audioscrobbler reports "Cannot connect to server" at every attempt. The cache keeps growing regularly.
Maybe the timeout is set too short?

Timeout is set to 30 seconds (which should be enough).

The error appears just one instant after the "Submitting track" notice, so the problem could be elsewhere. Never mind, my dsl is back  Thank you for reply

I have a feature request. Would it be possible to add titleformatting options for each field submission? That way if data is stored across multiple tags, the submissions could still be correct. For example, if I don't store information in the artist tag but display data from the performer tag using titleformating. Thanks.

Don't know if it's been requested before, but could you add a tag such as %scrobbled%, so that we could display when a file has been scrobbled.

I know you can use the playback time to work it out at the moment, but this wouldn't change when you skip to parts of a song, etc..

You don't mean tagging the actual file, do you?  I can't tell you how many people would jump all over you for even suggesting such a thing.

Anyways.. I've uninstalled Last.fm Player and switched back to foo_audioscrobbler simply because I was sick of Last.fm Player's unresolved bugs.  It pisses me off to no end to hear my floppy drive throw up into my room when I load a MP3 file, hence the eradication of Last.fm Player from my computer.

No, not tagging the actual file.

I meant just a value we could access to see when the file had been scrobbled, like how %ispaused% and %isplaying% work..

I have one question. Does Audioscrobbler scrobble tracks that have less than 1 minute ?
