Description

This is with audacious 3.7.1 on Mageia Linux. The scrobbler doesn't submit to last.fm, When I try to check the permissions, I'm getting network problem, but http://status.last.fm/ says that submissions are OK. The scrobbler plugin was linked with curl and OpenSSL.

History

#1 Updated by Andreas Kirchwitz almost 2 years ago

With Audacious 3.7.1 on Fedora 23 (Linux, 64 bit) I did the initial authentication to allow access. The browser opens and access is granted to Audacious successfully.

But the button to check scrobbling permissions (plug-in settings) always results in a network problem. No further messages are given what went wrong.

So I can verify the bug mentioned in this ticket.

However, scrobbling itself works just fine. It's only the permissions check that fails. Confusing.

I can confirm this bug. Version 3.7.1 on Arch 64.

#3 Updated by John Lindgren almost 2 years ago

  • Subject changed from scrobbler not working to scrobbler complains of network problem when checking permission

#4 Updated by Mihai Tiganus almost 2 years ago

I can confirm this bug on Ubuntu 14.04. But in my case it doesn't scrobble at all.

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version set to 3.7.2
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

Last.FM appears to have removed part of their API (the user.getRecommendedArtists request). If they continue to make changes like this without warning, we may stop including a scrobbler plugin with Audacious.

John, have you not been notified about the pull request [1] by Mihai Tiganus? It contains an additional fix for a OpenSSL/curl bug.
