Does someone has a replacement for #LibreFM? It is very unreliable concerning forwarding LastFM scrobbling. Actually it just doesn't work anymore. Maybe something has changed in the LastFM API. Still very frustrating 😩

@rgggn Yes I'm testing that one now, but I still have the following issues:

- can't export from libreFM, so I'm afraid that one is dead
- I want to connect other music clients besides Spotify ro ListenBrainz. I'm using Rhythmbox (on Linux).
- I see no RSS feed for my listening stats on ListenBrainz

It might be feasible to get a dump from librefm in a format similar to the lastfm exporter. It would also be worth reaching out to the ListenBrainz team about this.

"- I want to connect other music clients besides Spotify ro ListenBrainz. I'm using Rhythmbox (on Linux). "
Same problem! I'm still looking for a GNU/Linux audio player that can scrobble to all 3 systems. On Android, Simple Last.fm Scrobbler does it really well. The WebScrobbler Firefox extension does it too.

@jeroenpraat

"- I see no RSS feed for my listening stats on ListenBrainz"
It would be worth raising a ticket.

Anyways, my take on this is that ListenBrainz is a fun project but it's going to take a while before it's fully functional.

@rgggn So how you use the Simple Last.fm scrobbler with ListenBrainz?

@jeroenpraat you can log in from "user credentials". If I remember correctly, you will need a token that you can get from listenbrainz.org/profile

@rgggn Works great! I already forget about Lollypop. Let me see if it can replace Rhythmbox.

@rgggn Great news! I found a working #Listenbrainz plugin for #Rhythmbox!

github.com/phw/rhythmbox-plugi

community.metabrainz.org/t/lis

So I stay with Rhythmbox. More light-weight, able to edit meta-data, uses not Google for album covers, etc

Thanks for your help! Really appreciated.

@rgggn LibreFM isn't maintained really I'm afraid. Last commit is from two year old. This is on the site when you click 'data export':

'Export my data

We're working on export features, but Libre.fm isn't going anywhere. Please talk to @mattl if you have questions.'

Oh wait I see @mattl is on the fediverse.

@jeroenpraat Ah! I never bothered clicking on export 😁 Well that sucks 😕

@rgggn

Forget @mattl being on the fediverse (he was on GNU social):

Message I see cached:

"Matt Lee @mattl 26 mei 2017

Hey everyone, this is my final message on GNU social. Effective immediately, I am resigning from all activities relating to GNU."

We can safely asume #LibreFM is dead.
