How can I send listening statistics to last.fm ?

Besides displaying as well as streaming music based on related performers using webservices from last.fm, it's also possible to submit music that's been streamed in AmpJuke to last.fm.

The configuration of "Submit streamed tracks to last.fm" consists of four related parameters.
Below is a brief walkthrough of these parameters, as well as some configuration examples further down this page.

You - or the administrator of the AmpJuke installation - can enable/disable this during installation, and/or by logging in later and clik "Configuration..." in the low left corner on the "welcome" page.

Here's a description of the parameters used in relation to setting up submission of tracks streamed in AmpJuke to last.fm (last.fm refers to this as "Scrobbling"):

Allow streamed tracks to be submitted: If checked, music streamed in AmpJuke will be submitted to last.fm.
If you don't check this, the rest of the parameters will not be relevant.

Allow last.fm username/password in personal settings: If checked, you're basically allowing each individual user within AmpJuke to enter his/her last.fm credentials (username and password used on last.fm).
This is controlled in each user's personal settings.
Users without a last.fm username and password can simply leave those fields blank in their personal settings.
The reason not to enable personal last.fm username/passwords would apply if you f.ex. run a website for your family/friends that streams music to them using AmpJuke, and you want all tracks streamed in AmpJuke to be submitted to one last.fm profile, - f.ex. "Simpson Family".

Default last.fm username / Default last.fm password: Will be the default last.fm username/password to use (in case you have a profile similar to "Simpson Family" on last.fm).

 



Configuration examples.
(The examples assumes you enable submission of streamed tracks to last.fm by checking "Allow streamed tracks to be submitted" - see above)

Example 1: Each user submits his/her own streamed tracks to last.fm.
Check
"Allow last.fm username/password on personal settings".
Clear "default last.fm username" and "...password".
Effect: If a user enters his/her last.fm username and password within his/her personal settings, then each track streamed in AmpJuke will be submitted to the last.fm userprofile.

Example 2: Submit tracks using only one last.fm profile.
Do not check
"Allow last.fm username/password on personal settings".
Enter the last.fm username and -password in the fields "Default last.fm username" and "...password".
Effect: All tracks streamed in AmpJuke will be submitted to the last.fm username in the "Default last.fm username" field.
It doesn't matter what username is used in AmpJuke, since all tracks that have been streamed will be submitted to one (the default) last.fm user.
Furthermore, the last.fm username/password settings will be hidden in each user's personal settings (i.e. they're not allowed to use that setting).

Example 3: Each user submits his/her own streamed tracks to last.fm. Users without a last.fm username/password will submit to the default profile.
Check
"Allow last.fm username/password on personal settings".
Enter a valid last.fm username and password in the two fields "Default last.fm username" and "...password".
Effect: If a user enters his/her last.fm username and password within his/her personal settings, then each track streamed in AmpJuke will be submitted to the last.fm userprofile.
Users that don't have a last.fm profile and/or don't input last.fm username/password in their personal settings will submit tracks to last.fm using the default values ("Default last.fm username" and "...password").
