I just by chance got the pop up advising that if scrobbling is enabled, then the user-defined "what counts as a play" amounts are overridden. I only found that while prodding trying to work out why playcounts were not in line with the preference I had set.
My preference is that if a track plays for more than 10 seconds, then that counts as played as far as the MusicBee library is concerned.
Is there any reason why last.fm overrides the user preference? Can this be turned off without having to disable / enable scrobbling should I need to use it?
If this can't be changed, maybe the pop up should be burned into the text on the settings panel, or the option greyed out when not relevant.
