It's so fresh that it's still hot, it's not yet well tested even by me and has several restrictions:

1. As I said it's not very well tested, I just created the first version.
2. Breaks when there are issues on ListenBrainz side. If suddenly a dialog box appears with some errors regarding ListenBrainz I would very much like to get the full error message from you.
3. No MBIDs in the scrobble, MusicBee doesn't expose them in the API. I might be able to workaround it using custom tags, but if that fails I would have to read tags for each format supported by MusicBee myself which would be A LOT of work.
4. No offline scrobbling, all scrobbles are lost when there's no internet.
5. No playcount sync.
6. No "now listening".
7. Or any other feature the last.fm scrobbler has.

You can see the code, report bugs, etc. on GitHub. Also, since this is my first C# project a code review would be much appreciated. I'm also not sure if the licence can be GPL, if that's not the case please let me know.

The compiled plug-in is here:

To be able to use it you obviously need a ListenBrainz account. The plugin requires your user token to be able to submit scrobbles which you can get here https://listenbrainz.org/profile/

I just released another alpha (link below) which is much more stable. I'm scrobbling in parallel to last.fm and ListenBrainz and am actually getting higher scrobble count in ListenBrainz. That's probably because I'm scrobbling very short tracks also, which the last.fm plugin doesn't seem to be doing.

Please note that there is still no offline scrobbling so in case of issues with your internet connection or ListenBrainz internal problems your scrobbles will be lost.

And here's the link to the download:
