    Inconsistent scrobbling

    Since I have changed PCs my scrobbles are not coming across to the site. I have previously had the original Scrobbler on this new PC but some tracks will scrobble and others won't. I downloaded the desktop app to see if this would fix it but no lucky. Out of 5 songs I listened to in a row, 1 showed on the website profile and the desktop app.

    Opinions?

    do you have tags on your files?

    "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities"
    "I don't want to believe, I want to know"

    Not to my knowledge, no.

    Unless you are talking about ID3 tags.

    I am yes. On all of them?
    Any errors in the client?
    What mp are you using?

    ID3 tags on all.

    iTunes 10. The client scrobbler is working fine but it has to be open and the main window for the scrobbles to work.

    tried with the beta, still no luck, same problem. Back to the old one after a re-install but even now, 2 of the last 6 scrobbled.

    would move onto suspecting something with your conn/computer then

    "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities"

    firewall is open for the scrobbler (using Norton) so I don't see that as the issue. There is no way to update the playcount more than once?

    you can use the universal scrobbler, but that becomes a bit of a pain in the arse if you're doing it a lot.

    norton... :s

    have you tried from another location & computer?

    Yeah well, can't always win...

    You have a link for the universal one?

    Only one PC with the library atm

  • http://universalscrobbler.invitationstation.org/

    and if you say that "out of 5 songs only one gets scrobbled" is it that same one that always works and the others don't?
    Do they at least show up in the client while it's playing?

    a lot of these songs are being played first time so I cannot say whether this is constant. However one track I played 3 times this week in iTunes and it shows as 2 plays on LastFM. Using the old one, the client stays in the notifications bar without me touching it and it used to correctly transfer. I look at diagnostics but it has no tracks missing.

    in regards to the universal scrobbler, I am unsure of how to use scripts... : /

    i'm just pinning the app to the taskbar and living with that. I am probably jsut being pedantic.

  • This iTunes script is for Mac only - are you using one? If not then I would go for scrobbling from "musicbrainz" or "manually".

    That some tracks sometimes work and sometimes don't means that it's probably not related to ID3 tags... Could you please provide which OS and which iTunes version you're using?

    (also I'm moving this to the client forum)

    Bump. Still happening. Tried reinstalling, tried having the page open on my browser all the time (as that worked for a while.) Any ideas?

    Sick of this. Listened to two whole albums; not scrobbling.

    The scrobbler has missed two whole days of music. I have reinstalled, taken off firewalls,...

    anyone?

    I'm having the same issue. One song says I've played it 90 times on here, but my iTunes count for that song is 1,075. It's way off. There are some songs that get scrobbled more than I play them, though. Like one song has been scrobbled 110 times, but I've only listened to it 52 times. Scrobbling is being really inconsistent.

    I don't know if anyone else in this thread has suggested this, but do two things: Make sure you have the latest version of last.fm (Everyone says that!) BUT ALSO: change your pw. I had many issues with Last.fm, but those two things have solved (at least for now) my scrobbling problems.
