Why doesn't LastFM have a plugin for real player? Windows Media player is crap: The volume is too low and it jumps.
id suggest you get winamp maybe. people tend to agree that its very good, and it has a pugin. i make do with windows media tho. not sure why.
perhaps i'm being really retarded and missing something obvious. i've been using winamp since audioscrobbler started, basically. so, a coupla years or so.
yet i cannot find a random selection function.
i don't mean randomising everything already on yr playlist - i mean creating a random playlist.
can you do it in winamp? you can in musicmatch [which i only stopped using cos it was clunky and incompatible with scrobbler]. you choose/exclude a number of artists [you can just choose to potentially use all artists], the playing time, or any other factors, and it makes you a random playlist. i miss being able to do this. :(
and theo? said that you were being retarded and that its the easiest thing in the world. so i think it might be possible.
you create a new playlist, drag your music that you want and press shuffle surely?
i don't want to choose music - i want it completely random. and i don't want to have to put ALL my music onto the playlist just to get a truly random selection. i want a function that SELECTS a playlist for me. it could be as short as ten songs, but completely random, selected from my complete library. with music match, it opens a dialog window, shows all yr artists/songs etc, and you just deselect things if you don't want them to potentially appear in yr random playlist. you pick a certain number of hours, and it fills up that time with randomly selected music for you. it did this years ago, is there no way to get winamp to do the same?
i wish i could bring myself to just go back to using music match.
itunes does all my mp3 and cd playing these days ... more for convience sake than anything else.
does anyone find that lastfm influences their listening habits?
i find that i look at my charts, and when i notice that a band that i really like isnt there, i make an effort to make them on. this provides me with much inspiration as to what to listen to. its also lead to me using my cd player less, and using my laptop to listen to cds, so that its more representative.
is this anal and odd?
2) i just got lastfm radio player thing. its fucking awesome and i recommend everyone get it asap.
2) can't make it work
1) Yeah... everyone does it shirley?
2) I agree, it's damn ace...
"The track you submitted appears to be badly tagged - please check the file's tags."
What does this mean?
but normally it means that the song youre listening to hasnt been "tagged" with the artist name and the song name properly.
like if the mp3 is just called "The Wurzels - Remember Me.mp3", that isnt good enough. you have to edit it so that when you play it in a media player, in the artist field it says The Wurzels and in the song field it says Remember Me.
sometimes it's just last.fm being a poo, tho.
was playing - the first song was badly tagged, the second appeared on Last FM.
It doesn't matter what colour it is. The little icon is multi-cultural and an international symbol. He is all colours.
asked for it for xmas, Â£30 or something cheap like that. i laugh in the face of portable mp3 players. sometimes i carry a plug around with me too, so that i can plug it into walls as and when they make themselves available and save the battery.
Green: I am working properly
Red: I'm not working
Orange: I might be working, then again, I might not; life's like that sometimes
Black: Armageddon is upon us; this mortal coil is about to unwind and the demons will rise from Hades and consume us all
no i use my stereo a lot too. my computer and my bed are no longer roomies, so my stereo gets used after i wake up. plus i listen to things on it before i review them, because the sound is better and there's no myspace to distract me.
d'you only get that musical note icon jobby with itunes/macs?
