The 64-bit iTunes vs. Last.FM Scrobbler problem has finally been solved!

with one comment

Last.FM Forum ComplaintsIf you don’t use the music website Last.FM (old blog post in German), you don’t need to read any further. The current good news only apply to those who use the Last.FM Scrobbler with iTunes for Windows. Since Apple updated the music player of our choice to a version that is fully 64-bit (12.1.0.71, Windows 7), the Scrobbler did not detect songs that were played by iTunes anymore. Last.FM members have been complaining about it in the website’s forum since January 30, 2015.

When I just opened the Last.FM Scrobbler to check my Spotify scrobbles I finally received the notice for an update that had been promised by Last.FM for a weeks. I installed the update, and this did solve the problem. My 64-bit iTunes (12.1.2.27, Windows 7) scrobbles its plays again (including songs played on my iPod). For whatever reason, Last.FM did not consider it necessary (yet) to announce this major ‚bug fix‘ in its Twitter feed.
Last.FM Update Notice

Which brings up the question: Why are we still using Last.FM? ;-) Currently, my favorite music recommendation service is Pandora (blog post in German). I’ll post a separate blog entry with a general discussion about Last.FM – which just informed its subscribers about its plans to rebuild the site.
