MMM-Scrobble question - confused re: API



  • Sorry, another newbie question here…in order to set this up I need an API key from last.fm but don’t know how to do this.

    What do I put into the fields for Callback URL and Application Homepage?!



  • @ChrisEW As those are designed for a type of application other than this, it doesn’t really matter. If the form is fussy, you can use any valid URL for either. I use http://10.0.0.1/ as the Callback URL, and http://www.google.com for the App Homepage.

    The idea is just that the Callback URL is a place to point users after they’ve signed in via the pretty-looking web login, and the Homepage is just where people can find about about the app. Since you’re not making an app or directing other users to login, it doesn’t make one iota of a difference.



  • Thanks. I managed to get it eventually.

    One thing… do you need a subscription to Spotify for this to work? Right now I just use the free mode, but have a suspicion I need to subscribe?



  • @ChrisEW Nope! I do it with the free one just fine — just make sure you sign in to last.fm from any client (eg your phone and computer) you use Spotify on. You can also download their scrobbler program and it’ll automatically scribble from iTunes!
