I don't want to hijack this thread "Last.fm Scrobbler Not Working Right", so I add my experience with the last.fm scrobbler here.

Maybe some others have this too and can confirm? (I saw this a couple of times)


Case A)
I have seen songs, which were scrobbled, but not played.


They were maybe started, but never played.

Example 1)
I had a random playlist. Song were scrobbled fine.
I accidentially pressed the RELOAD-Button on the madsonic webgui, forcing the whole webgui to reload and stop the music.

This song " Dusty Kid — Agaphes " stucks in the playbar, but was never started/played.

last.fm, however, shows that song as a scrobbled song.

(you see in this screenshot, that the music stopped afer " Dusty Kid — Agaphes ". In real life, it stopped while playing "Marcel Dettmann — Translation Two", because on that song, I pressed PAUSE, then accidentialle reloaded the webgui

Example 2)
I browse the queue while a song is playing.
clicking accidentially on a song stops the curently playing song.
I click another song ASAP, but the first accidentially clicked song shows up as scrobbled at the last.fm site. (later on, when I check the last.fm site)


Case B)
last.fm site listed a track way too much often. They were never played that much

I found this tracks had problems in the log. (unfortunately, I don't have a logfile for that, atm, but take a look here)
So madsonic had problems with that song and repeatedly tried something with it.
Meanwhile, the playqueue continued playing, so that the "erroneous-song" appeared continously between the song, which were played for real.



Resume:
Madsonic scrobbles too fast.

How is it possible to set up a minimun amount of time, a song needs to be played (in real time) before it is scrobbled?

Is this even possible on a webgui? (how does the server "know" how much of a song is played, for how long?)
