Radio Play Problems with Last.FM Mac Desktop Beta

 
  • Radio Play Problems with Last.FM Mac Desktop Beta

    Hi,

    I recently downloaded the new beta of the Last.FM Mac desktop mac application/scrobbler. I love a lot about it... especially some of the things it fixes. But I have been experiencing one annoying issue.

    When I play a radio station it stops playing between each track. Once a track finishes, it appears to switch to the next track and the controls in the upper right corner don't show the track as paused...but the track isn't playing.

    The only way to get it playing again is hit the pause button, and then it it once again.

    I am using the 2.1.17 version of the Desktop app.

    I was wondering if this was a known issue? and if there were any known fixes?

    Thanks for your time.

    Next track is loaded/loading, but you need to click pause and then play again to start playing next track.

    Same issue, very annoying - going back to Spotify till this is resolved.

    Otherwise, love the new app - brings me back to actually using LAst.fm versus just scrobbling to Last.fm!

    My setup:

    Mac OS X 10.7.3
    Last.fm 2.1.17 (built on Qt 4.8.0)

    same issue here

    OS X 10.7.3
    Last.fm 2.1.17

  • Plays OK, but scrobbles not saved

    Spent an hour ot two listening to Friends Radio today. No problems listening but whilst the desktop app displayed info about each song, none were saved to my recently played tracks.

    Running Windows XP, with Last.fm 2.1.17

    I really must get round to creating a cool signature for this box

    same issue!

    snow leopard - last.fm beta

  • Same problem here

    OS X 10.7.3
    Last.fm 2.1.17

  • Similar, also..

    I've been having similar problems with the stream dropping - sometimes pause/play works, sometimes I have to restart.

    I've also noticed that sometimes I can't adjust the volume using the slider in the app, and the only way to fix it is to restart.

    Looks good so far, if the bugs get fixed!

    Такая же проблема наблюдается у меня на моем MacBookPro с Lion и последними обновлениями системы. После каждого трека по радио, приходится нажимать паузу в скробблере и play и тогда воспроизведение новой песни продолжается.

    Скробблер очень крутой, но вот такая проблема (

  • Problem continues with new update...

    FYI ...

    I just updated to the new Beta version 2.1.1.8 on OS X 10.7.3 and I'm still having the same exact problem.

  • Still present in 2.1.18

    I'm unable to reproduce this problem on my machine. Could you tell me which version of QuickTime you have installed? Or if there is something unusual with your audio setup. Thanks!

  • Same problem here. Had it both on 2.1.17 and 2.1.18. Sometimes it might start playing the next track, but most of the times it will display the next track info, but will not be playing anything until you press pause/play. This happens either if the radio comes to the track change all by itself or if you press Skip button.

    OS X 10.7.3
    QuickTime 7.7.1 (2315)
    Perian 1.2.3
    Flip4Mac WMV 2.4.2.4

    I've tried to look at the Console when the radio switches tracks, there is nothing there when this happens. Deleting all Last.fm assets (Caches, Library, Prefs, etc.) didn't help either.

    I'm having the same issue. I'm using a RME Fireface 800 for output. I do have Airfoil, but having it active or not doesn't seem to change the play issues in Last.fm.

    I'm not sure exactly where to look to tell you the version of Quicktime I'm using. The System Report says 7.7.1 under the Frameworks heading if that helps.

    OS X 10.7.3
    Perian 1.2.3
    Flip4Mac WMV 2.4.0.11

    I've also deleted all Last.fm preferences/caches/etc to no avail.

    Same issue here. This was happening in the last beta, and is still happening in the latest beta (that came out a few days ago). OS X 10.7.

    Same issue

    same issue

    please fix!

  • Truly Irritating and Renders Last.fm useless

    I only recently started having this issue, but same thing. The next track plays a few seconds then stops, then I have to pause an hit play again for it to continue.
