@gix : yes - TheQwertiest has right - please issue a new thread on forums. I have some feature request, as this plugin misses certain functionality from original one (blocking tracks from being scrobbled, based on tags)

For those that continue to have the handshake issue (as I did), I have written an alternative component: foo_scrobble. It transparently manages the scrobble cache (there's no need to manually submit it) and should work across network reconnects without problems. It also makes use of last.fm's newer submission API and does not require your login credentials.

Thank you gix for being the one to start a new open source scrobbler component! I too was getting fed up with the constant handshake failures of the existing foo_audioscrobbler and my disappointment in its apparent abandonment.

Hi, I installed this component a few days ago and it was working great!

However yesterday it stopped scrobbling the tracks that I have played on my ipod.
It still scrobbles the tracks that I play in foobar but not the ones that I've played on my ipod. It was working fine when I first installed it but as of yesterday, the ipod part of it doesn't work.

If anyone knows how to potentially fix this it would be greatly appreciated!

Did you post without reading the thread? Not even the complete thread but the very last few messages has the answer completely laid out for you. In short, don't use this outdated component, use the new foo_scrobble.

I did have a read of the last few posts and no one has mentioned anything about ipods so I presumed that ipod scrobbling was not supported on the new component.
I have installed and am currently using the new component and it works like a charm for normal scrobbling, but I don't see an option anywhere to enable ipod scrobbling.
I guess my options at this point are to see if I can fix the old component or find out if there is another way to scrobble my ipod.

For some reason, sending the computer into hibernation a few times prevents foo_audioscrobbler actually scrobbling - all tracks are cached, clicking "Submit" manually won't work until I restart foobar2000. Still broken with the latest version 1.5.0.

Any ideas?

The problem is unlikely to be related to hibernation but simply the handshake session key created on startup expires after a given amount of time. Your pc could be awake and the same thing will happen.

The proper solution is to use an updated component which doesn't use the ancient last.fm API with this handshake nonsense. Use foo_scrobble.

Oh! Thank you, I did not know that component. :)

The related Foobar2000 Scrobbling FAQ on the Last.fm support forum also recommends the newer foo_scrobble plugin instead of the old foo_audioscrobbler plugin that comes with the legacy desktop scrobbler.
