Thanks for your answer.

Why not? Isn't scrobbling unique and exclusive to Last.fm?
(I don't use it myself, so others will be better equipped to help further)

Since you don't use it, I guess I have to explain it a little bit deeper. Last.fm collects the information of all the songs that I played, including the time and date. But it is independent of a certain platform or app. There are scrobbling apps for smartphones (like pano scrobbler) that report your listened songs to last.fm. Some music players like Musicbee do the same. And some streaming services like Spotify do also this, if you want.

However, usually, the songs need to have a certain duration. Some scrobberls ignore a song if it is shorter than 30 seconds (but I have many songs that are shorter than 30 seconds, so I have to add this songs per hand). I think Musicbee also ignores songs that are shorter than 30 seconds. However, someone on this forum created a plugin, that scrobbles also very short songs while using Musicbee.

And here is, were my problem starts. On my smartphone, I scrobbled some shorter songs (less then 30 seconds). They show up on my last.fm account, but when I sync the playcounts of last.fm with Musicbee, they are not synced. It's like Musicbee doesn't know I listened to them.

Questions / Syncing playcounts of short songs with last.fm

I really enjoy Musicbee, and so far I haven't found any real bugs. But there is one thing, that is somewhat strange.
I listen to music with my smartphone, and scrobble my music to last.fm.
And so, of course, I sync my last.fm playcounts with Musicbee. Basically, everything works fine, the playcounts are synced - with one exception: if the song is too short, the playcounts in Musicbee don't match.

Like, for example: I listen to this record with 5 songs. The first 4 songs are longer, the last song is only about 29 seconds long. On the last.fm page, all this songs were counted. But after I sync with Musicbee, only the longer songs are updated. The songs below 30 seconds haven't changed the playcount. Also, the time of "last played" is changed for the long songs, but not for the short songs. It is as if musicbee doesn't recognize them, even though, they are on my last.fm account.
Is there a way to change it?

By the way, I installed a plugin that allows Musicbee to scrobble short songs - but I guess, this has no connection to syncing with last.fm.
