Last.fm Scrobbler Scrobble music videos all around the web!

24Jul/115

Release v1.1

Hello there!
Here's what you'll find in a new release:

  • Google Music support
  • fix for disappearing omnibox icon

Not much, you say? :-) I think the Google Music support is quite big! All thanks belongs to Sharjeel Aziz who is the author of the GM support. I didn't have chance to test it myself (as my country is blocked in the GM), but I'm sure Sharjeel did a great job and scrobbling will work just fine. If, by some accident, will not, contact me here, on the GitHub or anywhere else and I'll see what I can do about it ;-)

The other thing is disappearing omnibox icon after browser restart. It was reported in comments of previous post and I also noticed that while scrobbling. Unfortunately there is a bug in Chrome (issue #86449) which won't get fixed until Chrome version 14. Temporarily I added a bypass which seems to be working, so you can see the scrobbling status in the omnibox again. And of course you'll be able to correct unrecognized track titles!

Cheers!
David

  1. I am not sure if that’s a bug. I am using cosmic panda youtube(should I say skin of youtube?). Anyway, sometime when I start google chrome, I find your extension disabled. Any possible reason? How can I fix that?

    • Some updates I made recently needs you to re-enable the extension, because its permissions changed. That happens when I add support for a new website, which means the extension will interact with that web and Chrome needs you to approve that. It’s a security issue and I can’t do anything about that. After browser start (when the extension got updated) a yellow infobar should pop-out from the top of the browser asking you to re-approve the extension.
      Maybe you’ve just missed it ;-)

      And the panda YT … as far as I know, it’s just for testing purposes. Most likely some panda features will be merged into classic YT skin, but they definitely won’t switch to panda as a main theme. That’s the reason why I didn’t (and I don’t think I will) do a panda support in the scrobbler.

  2. Do you think you could make this work with Embeded videos?

    • Currently the priority was YT website. Embedded videos might be the next goal, but the last time when I checked it was techniccaly impossible to scrobble embedded videos.
      But I noticed that YT is testing some new player and who knows – maybe it will be possible. I’ll keep an eye on it ;-)

  3. Hey.

    Once i have manually corrected a videos scrobbling it would be nice if it remembered the correction. Now i have to write names and such every time i listen to a song.
