Last.fm is removing support for all radio streams hosted on their servers, even for premium subscribers.

As such I will remove all support for last.fm radio streams from musicbee. The auto-DJ already supports a couple of other stream sources, so i recommend you choose one of those if you use the streaming feature

How about Maestro.fm or Spotify or Slacker or Songza or Rdio? None have a recommendation engine like last.fm that's based on scrobbling, which sucks. Spotify I guess is the closest. I hope they buy last.fm. Currently, you can still access recommendations from last.fm via <http://www.last.fm/listen/user/username/recommended>. It opens a link to youtube. This works for Canada or US. Regardless it doesn't matter since you can use a vpn to get US IP if needed. I was wondering if we could modify the last.fm plugin on MB to extract the youtube link from last.fm via html and then play the audio from the youtube link so that you can still stream recommendations from last.fm.
