New & Improved Last.FM Plugin For Banshee

Filed under
Software

An updated version of Banshee’s Last.FM plugin provides better scrobble support and “instant” now listening updates on Last.FM.

The current Last.FM plugin is prone to dropping scrobbles, not being able to update your Last.FM page instantly (has a delay of somewhere around 5-15 minutes) and, worse for me, it requires you to listen to 100% of a song in order to scrobble! Arrgh!

Thankfully this new one alleviates all of the above, scrobbling a track at the 50% point – ideal for those with big collections and not enough time.

Installing it, however, is not for the faint hearted or those scared of screwing up their Banshee install.

All of what i’m doing can be put right with a few commands, but it’s still best to be sure that you want to do this.

Ready? Let’s begin!

Fluxday: A no-fuss open source productivity tracker

It would have been easier if we already had an open source platform we could build on. Although we did manage to build it quickly without disrupting our main projects, other companies might find it easier to adopt an existing platform rather than allocate extra time towards building an in-house productivity management application. For that reason, we've made Fluxday an open source project. Read more
