#1

While the current version has support for Listenbrainz, it doesn’t recognise the updated server response for successful listens and always caches them to try again.

edit: I submitted a pull request to developer on github and it has been merged. It’s available to download on their github releases page here…

I’m not sure when/if this updated version will be posted to the Play Store.


#2

Awesome! I think trying to get these changes to upstream so that people not here in the forums can use them would be really worthwhile.


#3

Well there didn’t seem to be any activity from the dev on recent issues/pull requests but I can give it a try. Also, I’ll see if I can parse the response properly instead of that lazy string check I’m currently using.


#4

It does seem to take a while for them to merge things, but a PR is most likely going to get it fixed upstream than just an issue. My own PR against SLS did take 1 month and a half to get accepted, but it did eventually go into upstream.


#5

I’ve submitted a PR… now to wait and see.


#6

Your Simple Last.fm Scrobbler doesn’t detect foobar2000 mobile, though it is listed as a supported player on the Google Play entry. Does anyone know if that is a known issue with the regular scrobbler app too? I haven’t used it before…


#7

It works for me but it doesn’t show as foobar2000. Instead, it shows up as “Android Music Player” Apps in the enabled apps screen.

@paramsingh @Freso , my PR has been merged so hopefully an updated version will be made official soon.


What's the criteria for when a scrobble is linked to Musicbrainz?
#8

The update is live already, and it seems to be working.

Great work!


#9

I does work, though the settings say:

“Android Music Player” Apps
This app is not installed

But it does scrobble.


#10

I’ve tried several players and none of them show up in 1.5.6, though ListenBrainz authenticates.

1.5.5 shows the player and caches scrobbles but ListenBrainz doesn’t authenticate.

Anyone else getting this?


#11

I tried but still it cannot scrobble. it show the playing count but does not submit anything to the targeted sites
