Phew, that's a big one 

I always wondered, how I could make use of the URLs embedded in the comment tag - especially the image-link.

I don't know exactly where the infos come from, which are presented by the newest version, but the next step in tagging would be the examination of a per track track.getinfo query. In this case there would be additional information for
  • album-position: Track number
  • toptags: Genre - only the top-rated, but i think using all available would go against usability
  • listeners/playcount: could be used to calculation a general rating

Maybe there are more. I think the most valuable are the toptags. Using them would bring more life to the enhanced "Last.fm Radio" context menu.

I just want to thank you very much for this wonderful plugin. I really missed not having LastFM integrated into foobar after using Amarok on my other Linux machine. I was using LastFMProxy but this is so much easier to use!

Thanks for the plugin. It is  a really really good one.

Just feature suggestions-

1. has been said before, but still - a love/ban button. (most of us are not really going to go to the last.fm website to love a track..)
2. maybe some more tags information - like description in the "comments" tag or , i'm going far here but maybe get genre and style from allmusic... (i don't even know if allmusic has an api, but if it does then this would be so awesome!)


Thanks!
p.s - I know the second one is a little far fetched.

A very minor polish request:  Could you please focus the text box by default in the custom station window?  Presently the drop-down box is focused when the window is opened.

I also frequently get this error when trying to play a song from a previously generated playlist:
Unable to open item for playback (Invalid ticket (403)):
"http://kingpin6.last.fm/user/c9aba423b670940774b96984f728630e.mp3"

I'm getting "Invalid Ticket(403)" every time I try to play the playlist (no matter what playlist).


I always get that error. The playlists are generated but I can't listen to any song.

Code: [Select]
Unable to open item for playback (Invalid ticket (403)):
"FOO_LASTFM_RADIO://kingpin6.last.fm/user/d307a1ae9db2144e0945e5a66ded26a9.mp3LASTFM"

Superunknown: do you have a specific station (artist, user, tag) for which this *always* occurs? I see it too sometimes (but usually just for a few tracks...), but am not sure if it is just Last.fm weirdness or something more specific.

It happens on every station, always: I've never managed to hear any single track til then.
BTW, thanks a lot for your contribution with this plug-in.

Another question : I've seen that a new playlist is created each time I try to open a new station. Is it possible to make a specific Last.fm foobar playlist who will be the one and only playlist used by this plug-in ?

I have a slight feature request: sometimes I leave a playlist open for a while, and when I come back, I try and play the first track in it, but the thing has timed out and I get an error for each track in the playlist:
Code: [Select]
Unable to open item for playback (Invalid data, received line length exceeds limit):
"FOO_LASTFM_RADIO://kingpin5.last.fm/user/caca6f73d326668d554064afe3fab59b.mp3LASTFM"
It would be nice if when this happens it automatically deleted everything in the playlist and went to receive more tracks, as I was just going to play the radio anyway.

Also, %album% seems to exist as a field even if it's empty, i.e. $if(%album%,do this,do that) always seems to do this, but never that... I think it's messing with the album art as well, CUI's artwork view shows a random pic from my artwork folder instead of the "no last.fm art" pic it's meant to. Edit: actually that last bit's wrong, but things like [ : %album%] are definitely returning " : " when there's no album instead of nothing...

Thanks a ton! I have it setup now to where I don't even need the client anymore. Now I just need to setup a way so I can love/hate tracks from foobar and I'll be all set.

Ooops - a part I have totally overseen ...

After trying some lastfm:// urls with minor success THIS is a beauty 

Even the history drop-down is helpfull, but could be improved be listing the queries one did by using the context menu.

Another point:
On last.fm there are some streams/cds of audio books. Using the website with the embedded player it is possible to listen to the whole cd. Is there a api functionality to get a playlist for such cds and listen to them through foobar?

How the hell did you manage to make this app run ? Still get that invalid ticket error thing :-(

Could you try the following please? Go to the album page for one of the tracks you are trying to play (link is in the context menu), and see if the track is marked "full track". I haven't found any real evidence that this makes a difference, but there was some speculation in a discussion of the API.

Does the official client work for you?

Also, do you subscribe to Last.fm? Perhaps that has some effect...

Thanks for your answer nausea. So it is not written "full track" on the album page, but it is possible that it appears on some. I've just tried with 3 tracks proposed by the app and none displayed this information on the album page.

The official client works perfectly here.

And I do no subscribe to Last.fm.

Thanks for your support, I've waited to a long time such a dll so I can't wait to enjoy it !

Do you have any other components installed or DSPs enabled which might be causing multiple accesses to the files? The "tickets" are only good for a single use, so this could be a reason.

I don't think so but I'm not sure. Here are the components installed on my foobar config :

It works after a clean re-install with foobar 0.9.5.6.
Unfortunately, it doesn't tell me if the problems are coming from a component from my regular config or its version (I fit on 0.9.5.0 in order to keep PanelsUI).

Does anybody know if this plug in is compatible with 0.9.5.0 ?

Hi nausea and thank you for your work on this component.

Using v0.4 I sometimes get a pop-up warning Problem retreiving (sic) Last.fm radio playlist: Empty playlist. but the (custom) station keeps playing nevertheless.

I've managed to make it work on my good ol' config (updated from 0.9.5.0 to 0.9.5.2). I really love this plug-in !

Now I'm trying to display the album art directly into track info mod. Does anybody know how to do so ?

mobyduck: I'll work on less invasive error messages for the next update (also see TomBarlow's comment). Spelling too...

Superunknown: Glad to here you got it working. I'll run some tests with different foobar2000 versions to work out the minimum requirement. I personally use the default UI with the latest version so compatibility issues have probably largely passed me by.

By the way, one of the best thing that could be add is the ability to do not open a playlist for each station but getting some kind of unique last.fm playlist option.

xbullethammer, Use the built-in artwork view of Columns UI and it will just work.

You have to configure CUI to read embedded artwork.
