Looks like bit defender doesn't like the fact that this dll uploads certain data to the Internet... I am guessing it by word 'cloud' invoked in threat name.

Maybe someone else is insane enough to install their own distribution of vcpkg and install cpprest, so this thing can be built independently and verified?

One of the scanners on VirusTotal seems to think this is a piece of some recent ransomware. Probably a false positive.

It certainly is a false positive. Though there obviously is no way for me to prove that. All those vague heuristics are in my experience really unreliable, and of course it's impossible to find out what they actually scan for. And even if I were to release a new clean version you could surmise I was just more careful about hiding it.

Targeting such a small obscure group of users seems like more trouble than it's worth. The good news is, if you are paranoid enough, everything to create your own build is freely available.

I'm not paranoid. I've gotten false positives for my own work, which all magically went away for that two year period where I paid the Authenticode Cartel for a certificate. $26 for notary public services, to verify my two forms of ID, and $475 to Thawte, bought a handful of people peace of mind. I still think it was a waste, though.

Thank you very much for creating this. It appears to work flawlessly. Just in case it has any influence, I too would appreciate libre.fm functionality to operate in parallel.

Thanks again.

Every time I open foobar, I have to re-authenticate.  And NowPLaying notification fails every time:

foo_scrobble: NowPlaying notification failed (error: 9, Invalid session key. Please re-authenticate.)
The same except different.

What does the log say when authenticating?
If NowPlaying fails right after, it looks like you don't properly complete the authentication procedure (or it fails).
If it succeeds, does the auth button say "Clear authorization" after closing and reopening the preferences?
If it does, after closing foobar, is there a %appdata%\foobar2000\configuration\foo_scrobble.dll.cfg file? Does anything delete this file?
If it's there, when you view that file in a text editor (Notepad if you don't have anything else), does it end with a string of 32 characters (using only small/uppercase letters, numbers, underscore, like "_AijaIJbA789aA7NMXmanQLKalG8zqDY")?

gix, I don't think I've properly expressed my gratitude for your work here. I've spent a LOT of time working with last.fm scrobbles lately while working on my component, and I've noticed a night and day difference between what last.fm thinks I'm listening to compared to when I was scrobbling with foo_audioscrobbler.

Example: before I heard of your component I listened to Metallica's Binge & Purge album. Last.fm scrobbled most songs from that album (but not all!) with the disc number in the title, i.e. "Binge & Purge (Disc 3)". With zero changes to tags your component correctly scrobbled them with the correct album name.

Because of how awesome this is, you're now the officially supported scrobbler for my foo_enhanced_playcount component which pulls last.fm scrobbles.

Keep up the good work.
