Now that the latest version has broken wifi sync does anyone have a copy of the apk install file for the one where scrobbling is enabled as the latest one on the forum does not scrobble - I think it''s version 120 and scrobbling was introduced in 121 (I think)?

Are you planning to do this for UPnP plays too?

Currently UPnP plays only get scrobbled when MMW is the source.

MMW is my source of choice, but I power off my PC each evening. I usually like to unwind, after that, with an album via an android tablet and a pair of bluetooth headphones. This is available to me as I also have a UPnP server on my NAS.

If I use MMA I get no scrobbling, so at present I have to fall back to BubbleUPnP, which does scrobble UPnP.

I realise that my MMW playcount won't be credited, but I use LFM as my master source for play history, as it collects plays from across all of my platforms. I then overwrite the MMW plays with LFM data, so that I can use MMW indices to identify albums which have fallen out of recent rotation.

I initially got that too. In my case it was caused by the SLS Support option in the official LFM scrobbler being set on. It was causing the official scrobbler to echo scrobbles sent to the Simple Scrobbler interface.

I've been getting mostly double-scrobbles with the Simple scrobbler, so I've turned it off and turned last.fm back on.

Simple Last.fm is worth a try. I downloaded it today when I couldn't get either of the other two option to scrobble UPnP plays successfully.

It has battery saving options, ie. scrobble each track, or after 10 tracks, etc, also scrobble at album end. Also a cache, with a scrobble on wifi only, or non-roaming option. You can optionally review the cache prior to scrobbling.
simple last.fm is a good choice :)

I don't see scrobbling either when playing via UPnP from a source other than mmw either.

All my credentials on the tablet are ok, ie. it now scrobbles ok when playing from music on the tablet when the MMW is not running.

I get scrobbling when playing via UPnP from MMW, but it is MMW which does the scrobbling, ie. I have MMA set to scrobble via Simple Last.fm ... the scrobble occurs but Simple Last.fm status screen is unaware that the scrobble occurred.

I have tried each of the three scrobbling agents for which mma has scrobbling options.

I have one other comment about MMA scrobbling support. Shouldn't the choice of Last.fm scrobbling mechanism be a toggle? ie. Why would I want multiple agents to scrobble my plays? Would that result in duplicated scrobbles?

What does MMA do if I check multiple agents? Does it try each in turn until it finds one operational, and cease when the scrobble has been achieved?

Presumably the answer is Yes, but it is not foolproof. I did notice one duplicated scrobble when playing a track stored on the tablet. It was triggered by having both Use Last.fm & Use Simple Last.fm checked in mma, and the Last.fm app had its SLS Support option checked.

Update:
MMW 4.1.0.1630
MMA: 1.0.4.0121

I just tried the Scrobble Droid option, and it seems to be working for me. Thanks for including that!

In my experience, ScrobbleDroid has generally been more reliable than the official Last.fm app. IIRC, Last.fm was killing my battery if it tried to post scrobbles at times when I had a weak data signal, and it was refusing to scrobble podcasts. There have been updates to the Last.fm app since I last used it though, so their issues may have since been resolved. I haven't had reason to go back and check.

This does not scrobble tracks over UPnP. If MMW is your server, it will scrobble, as before; but serving from my NAS, I need to use cog_scrobbler.

Today's update has this W00t.

I've never used a scrobbler on Android other than the last.fm app. Is there a good reason to try one of the other options?
The last.fm one did the job, didn't open any windows, didn't even put an icon in the status bar.

That's good to hear, Jiri. Thanks for the heads up.

Note that we plan to add support for some Android scrobblers in MMA soon.
