foo_scrobble ~ Foobar2000 & Last.FM


foo_scrobble is a component that scrobbles to last.fm.

The old foo_audioscrobbler component is unmaintained and has various issues.

This replacement:

  • Uses the current token-based submission API. You authorize the component with last.fm instead of entering your login credentials.
  • Manages the scrobble cache automatically. There is no need to manually submit the cache.
  • Handles intermittent network outages or reconnects well. No “waiting for handshake” issue.
