Problem: Audio scrobbler won't work when using UPNP Renderer or Tidal
#1
Shocked 
Hi everyone,

Last.fm scrobbling won't happen for me Confused

Here is how I use it :
  • I entered my Last.fm credentials in Moode's configuration menu
  • I enabled UPNP Renderer (DLNA Server is disabled because I don't use it)
  • I use BubbleUPNP as a control point
  • My sources are Serviio and Moode UPNP > Tidal
  • Moode is updated to its latest released version
Audio scrobbling won't work with any of my 2 sources.
I don't even know if it works on local files because I don't have any audio files stored on my SD card.

My questions :
  • Do the userid and password in the audio scrobbler config screen refers to my Last.fm login username and password? Or do I have to create API keys?
  • Do I have to install some system libraries for this functionality to work?
  • Where are the concerned logs located and what should I look for in order to debug this functionality?
  • What did I do wrong??  Angel
Thank you!  Smile

Yes, it's your last.fm login username and password
No libraries are needed
The conf file is  /usr/local/etc/mpdasrc

You can get messages from mpdas by running it from cmd line.

Code:
sudo killall mpdas
sudo mpdas

The output will be something like below

Code:
pi@rp3:~ $ sudo mpdas
(09:31:51) [INFO] Cannot parse config file (/home/mpd/.config/mpdasrc).
(09:31:51) [INFO] Cannot parse config file (/home/mpd/.mpdasrc).

As a coda to Tim's reply, once you have mpdas running from the command line, you should see a repetition of lines like the last two four in the following:

Code:
pi@moode:~ $ sudo mpdas
(10:37:08) [INFO] Cannot parse config file (/home/mpd/.config/mpdasrc).
(10:37:08) [INFO] Cannot parse config file (/home/mpd/.mpdasrc).
(10:37:08) [INFO] Using Last.fm service URL

(10:37:10) [INFO] Last.fm handshake successful. SessionID: <...>
(10:37:10) [INFO] New song: Sun Ra - Crystal Spears
(10:37:10) [INFO] Updated "Now Playing" status successfully.
(10:37:31) [INFO] Scrobbling: Sun Ra - Crystal Spears
(10:37:31) [INFO] Scrobbled successfully.

I captured this as I played a track from Tidal via BubbleUPnP to moOde.

Regards,
Kent

[Note added in post-edit] Sorry, I forgot to let the track complete so was missing the last lines in my first post.
