Audioscrobbler (now called Last.fm) have finally updated the group lists, but they've changed it so instead of showing how many times a particular artist has been listened to, they now have it showing how many different people have listened to that artist.

So its now clearer to see who the most popular bands are amongst matazonians.

However, this is much more impressive in other groups I'm in, where there are more members, so I'm asking anyone with a decent internet connection who listens to music on their computer to sign up.

Don't worry Mods, unless there are major changes to the site, I'm not going to spam this again.

I like seeing AFI at the top there. We've got the most fabulous music taste, us lot. System, Green Day, Modest Mouse... We're wicked.

I need to remember to keep using my WinAmp, actually, dammit... I've recently gone on a Cd binge instead. Bah.

But. Um. Yes. Join!

Heh, I'm currently using it on 56k.. It's not much of a drain, it just connects to the server every now and again to submit a new song.

Snugglebum: A Step by Step Guide to Joining Audioscrobbler.

I apologise in advance if any or all of this seems incredibly patronising:

1. Go here to sign up for an audioscrobbler account.

2. Go here to download a plugin. You need to make sure you get the right plug-in for whatever media player you use to listen to music on (This will probably be either Winamp or Windows Media Player).

3. Once the download has finished, run the .exe file and it should install the plug-in for you. Next time you load the media player, it will ask you for your audioscrobbler account details.

4. Check the tags on your files. For a file to be accepted by Audioscrobbler, it needs the Artist and Trackname fields to contain some data. In Winamp, you can change the tag info by right-clicking and selecting 'View file info...'. In Windows Media Player, you right click and select 'Advanced Tag Editor'. Audioscrobbler only registers that you've listened to a song

And you're done. Its that simple. Now JOIN!

You said something about needing to get music onto your computer in the first place.

You can legally download mp3s from this handy site, but the selection is very limited.

I would not, of course, use Mata's lovely boards to advocate illegally downloading songs, but I've heard from less reputable people that WinMX is a useful file-sharing program for that.

If you want to copy music from CD to your computer, you can use CDEx.

If you've got any questions about any of that, feel free to PM me, or pester me if I'm in IRC.

And now I would like to take this opportunity to say to everyone else on the board: JOIN! You know you want to.

I joined up a week or two ago, and I appear to be the only person listening to Bjork, Johnny Cash, and Alisha's Attic.

I was impressed by how easy it was to set up.

EDIT: I take that back... Although I'm not sure of the accuracy: are other people really listening to Johnny Cash? He really was The Man.

It says three people have been listening to Cash, same amount of people have been listening to Modest Mouse. I am not sure of the accuracy either.

Theres a number of possibilities: Your files aren't tagged properly. Your files aren't mp3s (I'm not sure if other media types work). You're skipping through them, or they're shorter than 30 seconds. Audioscrobbler is just taking ages to process them.

Maybe other reasons as well, but those are the most common.

Dunno about file tagging, they are mp3s mainly, on average just over 5mins. I blame AudioScrobbler

I also joined, but it doesn't seem to like me too much either.. I think that some of the stuff I listen to is perhaps a bit less than 30sec because I'm just trying to make synthesized sounds of instruments to predict how my composition will sound with and orchaestra... but the majority is longer...? sad.gif

That's the most common problem, in my experience - it IS a free service after all, it has a lot of customers and a limited amount of resources. Be patient and it'll get through, more often than not.

As for whether other file types get through, I've seen m4a and ogg also register when tagged properly.

To jump back to the Johnny Cash question.. I know of four people who're listening to him on AS: Mata (obviously), me, Samorine and iamtehvic (IrishGuy).

And yes, join!

And yes, the group stats are funny.

And yes, I'm quite partial to a cookie from time to time.

I considered joining, but for two problems. One, my music player, MusicMatch Jukebox isn't supported. Two - I don't really listen to much music on the PC, and when I do, it's usually mixes I've downloaded from online acquaintances who nobody will have heard of.

I used MusicMatch years ago, I've not tried it recently, but I can safely say that I'm seriously impressed with the current version of Winamp, which is fully supported by AS. Try it, you might like it smile.gif

Commie, I see you've been caught with 'The Silver Mount Zion Memorial Orchestra and the Tra-La-La Band' bug too. Would this be the influence of a certain frog that I detect here?

My lot certainly is a mixed bunch!

EDIT: There's also a cool plug-in for Firefox that lets you control your music player from the browser window. It's a must for music junkies!
