Problem scrobbling to last f,

Regular

Since some week i experience some trouble scrobbling from spotify web player (Chrome) to Last FM. Can someone help me understand why it does not work? I've tried to disconnect and reconnect my account multiple times. No results.

I've escalated this ongoing issue since I'm experiencing it myself too so hopefully this gets a quick solution.

@el_pinta Just to clarify, is this only happening with Chrome, have you tried other browsers?

It appears the option to scrobble to Last.fm has been removed from the Chrome web player (the web player has been redesigned - I'll save that for another thread). None of the songs I have listened to today are showing up.

I don't think that scrobbling from Chrome was disabled. It scrobbles but it appears to me that you have to stay on the web player panel and after an ad you have to stop and play the track if the player does not upadate itself automatically.

I've been having similar problems w/ Chromium on Debian Linux. Your observations seem to agree with some of the behavior I have seen.

 

  • I believe that if you keep the web player window active, scrobbles work (I haven't confirmed this, but have noticed it happening from time to time)
  • I've also noticed that the title in the tab does not seem to update correctly if you do not have the web player tab active
  • Running w/ Iceweasel (Debian's build of Firefox) it was able to scrobble correctly multiple times while not the active tab or window

Is there a solution to this? I noticed that's the issue, unless I keep the window with the player visible it'll not update it and therefore it'll not scrobble. I know there's an option for Google Chrome that I think that, once active, it keeps all tabs active all the time at the cost of more RAM usage. I'll try to search for it again and see if it yields any results.
