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.
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.
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.
I tried disabling tab discarding but it didn't work, rip.
@JackS Thank you for responding. I'm able to scrobble on the desktop app. Last week, I was able to scrobble using the Internet Explorer web player, but I'm not able to today (by the way, the IE web player isn't updated, at least on my work PC). I was able to scrobble via the Chrome web player before the update.
Using the web player on a Chromebook, so evidently Chrome is the only option for me. As others have noted, the scrobbling feature has been removed from the web player and the Chrome extension doesn't pick up the tracks anymore.
I use spotify on mobile, scrobbles without a problem, and as a desktop app on a different device, scrobbles without problem - all on the same account as the webplayer, but scrobbling still does not work for the webplayer function.
