Last.fm Plug-in

by kellenjb / December 13, 2006 10:53 AM PST

V said on the show that she thought there was a plug-in for last.fm that got the info from the songs you listened to on your portable device. She then said she doesn't use it because she can't plug her ipod in at work. I am guessing this means she has last.fm installed at work. My question being: can you install last.fm on more than one computer? I listen to most music on my desktop except that I sync my iPod with my laptop. It would be a nice plug-in to have.

you can install a last.fm plugin on multiple systems and use the same account. IIRC, Veronica was talking about not being able to use it with her iPod because it is Mac-formatted so her work pc wouldn't recognize it so she couldn't send her song info to last.fm (which can easily be fixed by formatted the iPod as "Windows", FAT32, which works fine on Mac's and Windows)

btw, iScrobbler is a great iTunes/iPod last.fm plug-in for OS X. There is one called something like "jscrob" for Windows that was pretty nice when I used it. There are ofcourse plugins for most other media players and some other portables.

it is a little complicated to figure out how it submits though.

heres the scoop.

it submits songs played on the computer like normal and from the ipod from the recently played list when you sync. so if you played a song on the computer, then listen to your ipod, then listen to some songs on the computer, then sync, the ipod songs wont sync because the songs from the second computer listen have already been submitted.

to ensure all your ipod songs get submitted i simply sync my ipod before i listen to music on my computer. or you can pause submissions but then they won't be real time.

check out the last.fm forum, i've posted in there a bunch...i'm sure your head hurts now
