Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426046
the last.fm-plugin doesn't submit songs to last.fm
Last modified: 2008-05-28 22:38:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Lately when I listened to music in Rhythmbox, it doesn't submit the songs to
Last.fm. On rare occasions one song might get submitted though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Rhythmbox and enable last.fm-plugin
2. Listen to music
No songs gets submitted
All songs should be submitted and shown on last.fm
I am experiencing this problem as well. The only way I have ever got it to
submit songs in the new version was to delete all of rythmbox's settings and
reconfigure it, then one song was submitted.
Do they have a new version that isn't broken yet?

output from rhythmbox -D audioscrobbler
I have same problem. I attach a debug output.
I saw that rhythmbox 0.11.5-3 introduced an upstream patch to fix this issue,
does it work? Is it possible to backport it to F8? This issue is kind of annoying...
rhythmbox-0.11.3-10.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
The upstream patch was actually added in 0.11.4.
I'm not sure the patch is going to be quite enough, and we're reworking the
last.fm plugin upstream to use the new audioscrobbler APIs. The code should be
cleaner, and certainly better in future releases.
I've been testing it for some hours now, on 2 different machines, without
noticing a sensible difference, still 1 song out of 10 gets submitted, more or
rhythmbox-0.11.3-10.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update rhythmbox'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F8/FEDORA-2008-3026
Have been trying rhythmbox-0.11.3-10.fc8 with 10 tunes in the last hour and none
I have over 8k submitted tracks with an average of 30+ per day... is last.fm
filtering updates? The reason I think this might be the case is that other
players Amarok, beep and one more that I don't even remember the name of do have
the same problem after a while.
Resolution hint that may be completely incorrect, educated guess: Maybe there is
a problem of timestamps when submitting updates. I believe one can not update
last.fm until the update timestamp of the previous tune is expired
(old/history.) Maybe month/day have been switched? I am running ntpd and I am
always on stratum 2 at least.
What is even worse is that it seems to submit tracks that hasn't been fully
listened to (less than 5 second listening and clicking on the next button. This
was in "Shuffle" mode.)
