Description of problem:
Scrobbler requirements are (iirc):
Track must be at least 30 seconds long
Track must play at least 50%
This build seems to submit immediately upon start of playback.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start amarok
2. Configure for scrobbler submission
3. Play track
Actual Results: Indicator says track is submitted immediately
Expected Results: Amarok should wait for at least 30 seconds, then for at least 50% of playback before submission.
Could this be related to bug 151329?
The amarok devlopers are aware of the scrobbler specs :
The limit seems to be 240 seconds, not 30.
http://www.audioscrobbler.com/development/protocol.php is the full protocol
spec. I was getting 30 seconds confused with minimum track length for submission.
Either way, amarok should not immediately submit data.
Work around for 151329 fixes this issue.
