I would really like the option to scrobble to Libre.fm instead of last.fm (http://libre.fm/)

It seems to me that Libre.fm is more open, beautiful and better than last.fm, and thus would make a better pair with MB  ;D

I'd like to have both Last.fm and Libre.fm supported in MB, but of course Libre.fm seems to be much better choice for the future.

NEED HELP? Make sure you describe the issue in detail and post your MusicBee version number.

Sorry to reply on an old topic like this, but
I would really like to see this option too!

I know this is old, but I'd also like to add my voice to it. Last.fm is getting increasingly flaky, with server outages now occurring regularly.

if there are any developers reading this and interested in this functionality, i cant see any reason a plugin cant be built using the musicbee api

I really would love to have a plugin like this too. If I knew how to develop something like this, i'd make it myself. But i really don't know how to do it.

I read somewhere that libre uses the same API as last.fm.
So does this mean it's as simple as changing the url/ipaddress it scrobbles to?

Here's a list of how to configure clients for libre.fm, maybe it helps:
http://bugs.foocorp.net/projects/librefm/wiki/Clients

These are the libre URLS i guess:
Change the 'extensions.lastfm.api_url' pref to 'http://alpha.libre.fm/'
Change the 'extensions.lastfm.auth_url' pref to 'http://turtle.libre.fm/'
http://turtle.libre.fm

By the way, how can i learn to make a plugin. Do i need to have C++ knowledge or something? (I don't by the way  :()

+1 for a plugin. I think of changing from Last.fm to Libre.fm for some time but sadly it's not as supported as Last.fm :-S

I had no idea this site existed until I read this thread. I would definitely love to use both websites within MusicBee.

Sorry to continue bumping, but elaborating on the links nikkel posted, I found this:
http://bugs.foocorp.net/projects/librefm/wiki/Using_turtle#Step-Two

I have no idea where to find our last.fm hosts file, but it appears if it were changed to libre.fm's IP, then it would work for Libre.
Then again, musicbee is pretty integrated with last.fm (as far as I can tell) so maybe it's more complicated.

Sorry, have to bump again.
Is there no one who is able to make a plugin for libre.fm?

my position on this hasnt changed - it needs another developer to build a plugin
