QScrobbler is a Last.fm / Audioscrobbler client for Quasar Media Player.
QScrobbler reads Quasar’s current playback status to scrobble audio files and submit them to the Last.fm submission server so they will show up on your Last.fm profile. In case QScrobbler can’t connect to the server it will queue all scrobbled songs and submit them once it can connect again. This ensures that all songs will be scrobbled even if you’re on the go and don’t have a net connection available.
QScrobbler is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) v2 and the source code is freely available.
NOTE: As of version 0.96 beta 4 of Quasar Media Player, QScrobbler is integrated in the application. This separate package is no longer required for scrobbling.
Prior to starting QScrobbler please make sure you have the playback status feature enabled in Quasar.
To enable it open the configuration dialog (Tools > Configuration…) and check either
Broadcast playback status via QCop (for external apps) on SharpROM / Cacko or
Save playback status to temporary file (for external apps) on pdaXrom.
After starting QScrobbler for the first time you can enter your Last.fm account information via Tools > Settings.
Version 0.6 / Beta 2 (2007-12-24):
- First public release featuring basic last.fm support.
