Is the problem not in retrieving them correctly?

edit: I can't generate playlists nor love tracks with Röyksopp and Trentemøller

edit2: Scrobblecharts can do the job with both, so maybe you should have a look at that

1. generate Röyksopp playlist: is fixed now
2. love Röyksopp track: was already possible normally.

Can you verify this with new version?
Make sure they are correctly named.

Hey this is good stuff! And development is going fast too!

I can't wait for the similar artists feature to be implemented, so I can chuck the old last.fm plugin.

On something else, i dont know if you saw my last comment in audioscrobbler thread but i feel today like we have too much lastfm related plugins(lastfm_radio, biography_view and softplaylists), and that maybe, if all dev would agree, they should be combined in one ULTIME plugin. What do you think?


I don't think this will make it easier to develop things.
As long as no overlapping things are done and it's not too fragmented it's ok to have multiple last.fm related plugins.

for me, this was already working in today's first version. but now it's broken.  both v2 and v3 return empty playlists. loving tracks still works though. i've tested these 2 artists....

How do you want the similar artist chart implemented?
-> get similar artists with a limit on the number
-> get the top tracks for these artists
-> sort them all on playcount

Other suggestions?

Limit on the number of artists and number of songs, sorted on top tracks would be awesome (track feed limit per artist and artist feed limit)

made the todo list a bit longer:
-exploit artist.getSimilar in combination with artist.getTopTracks
-exploit recursive track.getSimilar calls
-exploit artist.getTopTags, track.getTopTags, tag.getTopArtists, tag.getTopTracks
-exploit tag.search, tag.getTopArtists, tag.getTopTracks
-exploit user.getRecentTracks in combination with user.getNeighbours, user.getFriends
-exploit library.getTracks

is it possible to also fetch the similar tracks for a selected track?
i'm talking about this: http://www.last.fm/music/Radiohead/_/Idioteque/+similar

it uses the API service track.getSimilar: http://www.last.fm/api/show?service=319

imo this could provide automatic playlists a little more similar to iTunes Genius...

currently i been playing around with Playgrub, a bookmarklet that can create XSPF playlists from web pages to take advantage of this last.fm feature, but it would be handy to do it inside fb2k...

edit: nice, i see that track.getSimilar is on your todo list! 

another sugestion:
you can get XSPF playlists with Top Tracks from a certain Tag using this link:

http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/tag/*insert tag name here*/toptracks.xspf

example: http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/tag/rock/toptracks.xspf

i'm not sure if this could be useful to this component...

How about the option to place a tag on any track "loved?" If it's something too foreign for your developing skills, I understand, but I definitely think it would be a great feature. It's unfortunate that foobar doesn't have any such thing as making "macro" commands, as then users could easily just combine any tagging script they wanted with your love track action.

I agree on the tag thing, at least on the playing track would be great!

Thanks for the last version

hmmn, still having issues with this.

example....

Code: [Select]
foo_softplaylists: successfully loved Headphones (Ø Remix) by Björk
foo_softplaylists: failed to love Headphones by Björk


infact, i can't seem to love any tracks by Björk except that first one????

all other stuff with no special characters is fine.

That's really weird. Can you check the exact %artist% and %title% tags?

So Björk's Top Tracks also doesn't work? I just tried this in foobar 1.0b2a with 2009-12-01.4 and it worked.
Maybe some system dependancy?

-Added: Last.fm Love Track command (enter Last.fm password in configuration)


WOW, brilliant!
Two things tho:
- would it be possible to somehow synchronize love tracks from last.fm with tags (for the moment one can't know if the track is already marked, I solved it by retrieving my love tracks and tagging it and then adding separate column, but something more automatic would be nice  )
- using new menu would be nice, at the moment context commands are in "Legacy commands" category.


I second this.
In lieu of a sync, it would be simply cool if the plugin would just tag the file at the same time as updating last.fm. As long as we always use your plugin, things would stay in sync. Oh and if you do this. Please make the tag user definable!

Keep up the great work, this plugin is becoming extremely useful!!
