    NB: as a final note to this, it appears that you need to have both Scrobble Droid AND the Last.fm scrobbler installed for scrobbling to work.

    Actually, now it's not working again - but I don't think it's BeyondPod's fault. The Last.fm app gets the episode details, but then doesn't scrobble it.

    ARGH.

You'll find it via Menu | More ... | Settings | Menu (again) | Advanced settings.

    That helps a lot. Thanks Julie

    Last.fm scrobbling seems to have disappeared again from Beyondpod v. 3.2.55. Any idea where it went?

    In the previous versions we used a workaround ("hack") to publish album/artist information that worked on many devices. This workaround is still available but it is now turned OFF by default (as it caused Bluetooth audio problems on some device/car stereo combinations).

    You can enable it in: Menu > More > Settings > Menu (press the Menu key again) > Advanced Settings and check "Publish Current Episode".

    Not sure what else may have changed - I personally don't use last.fm, but as far as I understand the "official" Last.fm app was using the same events Google music is sending "com.android.music.metachanged" and "com.android.music.playstatechanged" to track the playback progress. We send those events when "Publish Current Episode" is checked.

    In the previous version we were also sending the old "net.jjc1138.android.scrobbler.action.MUSIC_STATUS " event used by ScrobbleDroid but it has not been supported for a while now so we don't send it any longer.

    What scrobblers do you use? We can try playing a bit with them to see if we can get one of them to work again.

    In my case, I'm using the official Last.fm app to scrobble the tracks I'm listening. FYI, apps like PowerAmp or PocketCast works fine with Last.fm app, e.g..

    Thanks in advance.

    I think were able to find the issue with scribbling. We had removed the (old) "Scrobbledroid" method and relied on the "Android Music" method only. This worked with "Simple Last.fm Scrobbler" app, but for some reason not with the official Last.fm app, which still needed the "Scrobbledroid" method for some reason.

    We just released a new beta 3.x.62 (available on our BETA page) that returned the "Scrobledroid" method so the official last.fm app should be working now too. If you have a chance, can you give it a try?

    If you have 3.x.62 and "Publish Current Episode" is enabled in Menu > More > Settings > Menu (press the Menu key again) > Advanced Settings scrobbling should now work.
