What this package is

This package comes as a library and demo server (named scrobble-server) for scrobbling via the procotol of Audioscrobbler. The demo is merely for a demonstration, you should use the server as a library and do what you want with the scrobbled tracks.

It also supports scrobbling to Last.fm or other scrobbler service, see the Client module.

See the Audioscrobbler documentation for the protocol.

Example usage

$ scrobble-server 8910
New session: Session {sesHandshake = True, sesVersion = "1.2",
  sesClientId = "qlb", sesClientVer = "0.9.2",
  sesUser = "christopherdone",sesTimestamp = 2012-06-10 18:38:40 UTC,
  sesToken = "f8bfeb761205fd72abf78b4dc54724f2"}
Now playing: NowPlaying {npArtist = "Aphex Twin",
  npTrack = "XMD5A",npAlbum = Just "Analord 10",
  npLength = Just 478, npPosition = Just 2, npMusicBrainz = Nothing}
Listened: Submission {subArtist = "Aphex Twin",
  subTrack = "XMD5A", subTimestamp = 2012-06-10 18:42:39 UTC,
  subSource = UserChosen, subRating = Nothing, subLength = Just 478,
  subAlbum = Just "Analord 10", subPosition = Just 2,
  subMusicBrainz = Nothing}

How to use with your music player

To use, configure your music player and change the Last.fm/Audioscrobbling plugin you have to point to your localhost.


For Clementine, there is no such option. But you can instead go to the proxy settings and choose HTTP proxy, and enter the details of the server instead. Scrobble-server ignores the proxying part of the request.

Quod Libet

Go to Music → Plugins and check the AudioScrobbler plugin. Choose “Other” and enter the server/port of the server. The username and password don't matter.
