I created a plugin (based on TrevTV's ScrobbleItem) that automatically scrobbles tracks shorter than 30 seconds to last.fm:

Someone already found a bug that I fixed with version 1.1.0, available here:

https://github.com/bgaesslein/mb_ScrobbleShortTracks/releases/latest

Turns out the exact threshold for last.fm scrobbling is 29.963ms so there were some double scrobbles.

Is there a way to update the plugin page I created earlier with this link? I didn't think of using the shortcut that points to the latest release at github so the download button still points to 1.0.0.

click on the word "dashboard" in the top right corner of the page. when you are on the dashboard, click on "view all add-ons" to edit them.

v1.3.0 is out and the plugin now scrobbles short songs on completion instead of immediately. Skipped songs will no longer be scrobbled.

Registered just to say thank you for this and also to commend you on your excellent musical taste. That album has LIVED in the CD player of my car for the last 12 years when I got the car, and I'm not even joking.

No problem, glad it helps. Properly scrobbling the tracks from this compilation was what drove me to look into making this plugin in the first place. I've had this CD for 20+ years now and only recently rediscovered it because I ripped all my remaining CDs to my media server.

I am pretty sure Scrobblebrainz already does this?
Yes. But Scrobblebrainz only submits scrobbles to listenbrainz, not last.fm.
