    Rendezvous Playlists?

    I just noticed that if I'm listening to songs that aren't local (I keep most of my music on my os x server box and listen from my laptop in the other room) that iScrobbler doesn't update at all. It doesn't recognize that anything is even playing. Running on os x 10.3.3 with latest iTunes.

    Is this a known bug?

    I have noticed that as well. I listen to music over my college's network and none of the non-local songs played have shown up in iScrobbler. Hopefully, a new version of the plug-in will fix this!

    Me too !

    RendezVous playing is an essential feature for me too. I hope this will get fixed.

  • 1. Quit iScrobbler
    2. Right-click iScrobbler, choose "Show Package Contents"
    3. Open Contents, Resources, Scripts, controlscript.scpt
    4. In Script Editor, delete this line:
    set songLocation to location of theTrack as string
    5. Replace the line that begins with:
    return ((trackIndex as string) & "***"
    with:
    return ((trackIndex as string) & "***" & (playlistIndex as string) & "***" & songTitle & "***" & songLength & "***" & songPosition & "***" & songArtist & "***" & songAlbum & "***") as string
    6. Save the script
    7. Open iScrobbler

    The modified app will not attempt to find the "location" of the current track, which iTunes does not make available for Rendezvous-shared music. I don't know why iScrobbler wants to know the location, but it isn't used anyway, AFAIK

  • Thanks for that Jigsaw

    Nice one Jigsaw!

    Seems to work fine, no problems at all.

    Thanks!

    Didn't quite work in iScrobbler 0.6.3

    But almost did.. I found it was already returning the string that Jigsaw mentioned, but it gave me a good hint...

    Change the line

    set songLocation to location of theTrack as string

    to read

    (* set songLocation to location of theTrack as string *)

    This comments out the location lookup, where the script seemed to halt. You could just delete the line completely.

  • Don't get it??

    Done all of the above and when I come to save it, it tells me it is unable to save bu tells me nothing more?

    Anyone any ideas?

    still broken

    these instructions still work, but it would be nice if the fix was applied upstream. and/or this was in the FAQ, or something.

    I mentioned this in another thread (can't remember which one at the moment). Internet/Shared tracks will not be supported in the .7.x releases. Not everyone wants these types of tracks submitted (I am one of them), so we have to offer a choice. It's not just as easy as making a script change.

    BTW, 0.7.3 test 5 is out, which fixes quite a few bugs. It also changes the control script for easier support of shared tracks (in a future release). This should make it easier for those who want to modify their scripts until then.

    okay, cool. i missed that. i'm not sure why one wouldn't want shared tracks posted (internet radio stuff i get, since one isn't selecting it). i'm totally content to make the script change for now, until a magical checkbox appears in a pref panel at some point.

    word.

  • So, is there a new way to fix the script?

    Look for the line:

    set songLocation to "Shared Track"

    and you'll find it's followed by:

    return "RADIO"

    remove the "return" line and control will flow down to the bit where the data is returned to iScrobbler.

  • yes!

    yay!

    thanks :)

    No, this is scheduled for 0.8 (no time table yet).

    This doesn't work for me. Removing 'return "RADIO" ' didn't do much. It even said that it was connected to the server but nothing would appear on my page. Then, I rebooted and it wouldn't connect anymore. Buggy.

    Nothing's buggy (at least not this portion). You just happened to start submitting at a time when the server is experiencing some hiccups. There seems to be some transient connection problems at the moment. Your songs are being queued, and will eventually get to the server. You'll just have to wait.

  • plugin id

    i did everything per the instructions and the "plugin id" portion is dosen't show anything... is this something to worry about? 10:13 am pacific time friday morning just incase something was up at that time!

    That's because you have not submitted any tracks yet. Looks like the server has been refusing connections for the last hour straight, which would account for the problem. As I said, just wait, and things will start working again.
