Scrobbling require constant permission access.
« on: July 19, 2020, 11:45:18 am »

Hi
I am using Last.fm scrobbling and Media Center 24 for quite some time and I never had any issues with scrobbling before.
Unfortunately, since the last few days, I got notifications that MC24 requires access/confirmation for scrobbling.
This is really annoying to accept this every 10 or 20 minutes, I saw some folks already reported this on last.fm forums and they were redirected to JRiver forums.
Is there any way to fix this?
I am using updated Windows 10 Pro N, no anti viruses, or firewalls besides Windows Defender.

I've noticed this too in MC26.

I think something is going on last.fm's side with their servers.

And their mod said that it's probably MC's API...  ?

Tell the mod that you haven't changed MC.

It looks like this won't be resolved any time soon as Last.fm does not see any issues :/

I can only report have had no problems in MC26 since I fixed it   Not sure if this pertains to MC24.

Right-click on the 'zone' under the "Playing Now" heading in the app's main screen (ie "Player" or other zones in fancier setups,) then select "Scrobble 'Listening To' ."

Thanks but it didn't work for me, it's asking for permission every song now and does not matter how many times i click OK in MC and allow in Last.fm, it's not working now at all.

For anyone that still has this issue, removing MC from connected apps in last.fm settings and adding it again should resolve this issue, I just tried and so far no requests! :)
