scrobbler complains of network problem when checking permission
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.

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.

- 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  by Mihai Tiganus? It contains an additional fix for a OpenSSL/curl bug.
