so for the past few weeks Last.fm would stop scrobbling for no reason. No problem, I'd just connect last.fm to spotify and it'd work again. Few days later it'd repeat. Didn't see much problem in it as I could easily add the missed track or two manually.
Today it happened again. But this time, nothing could fix it for some reason. I disconnected last.fm account from Spotify, connected again, changed my password, tried to link accounts directly from Spotify itself, downloaded the official last.fm app, switched devices (from iPad to Android phone)... nothing worked!
I'm also figuring out how to get it to scrobble - none of my 3 hour listening got scrobbled. Now, after connecting my last.fm in Spotify preferences and disconnecting the app in last.fm applications it seems to work for now. Even scrobbled the local file for the very first time!
For me it seems there is something wrong with the Spotify Scrobbler app (one at Last.fm settings). When I checked with Windows Phone Spotify, that scrobbled and it doesn't use that app (it's connected through Spotify settings).
Usually these scrobbling outages should resolve on its own in a few hours or so. Currently there are no known issues reported as well - last.fm has a status page.
Hope this helps! 🙂
