[plugin] [ORPHAN] rmc_audioscrobbler (bsl_audioscrobbler evolved)

I rewrote the bsl_audioscrobbler plugin completely. Now it also shows album cover art.

A few caveats:

  • album cover art may not always correspond to the album. Occasionaly Audioscrobbler returns the album attribute of a song empty and I search Amazon on artist name only.
  • amazon returns gif instead of jpegs on certain songs
  • This plugin doesn’t work on PHP5.
  • you’ll need to upload a couple of files for this plugin to work.

Have fun!

Hey Ruairi,

Thanks again for providing your code for caching. You probably already know, but from that code I saw you were still suing AWS 3.0. There is a new API out for ECS 4.0 (they changed the name). It’s not that big of a deal, but if you want to keep up to date, I’d figure I’d let you know.

I saw that there was a new api, but none of the code examples included PHP, so I imagined that they had not released a PHP api and started coding with the older API for which I’d found a PHP script. Thanks for the comment, it actually switched on my brain and I googled “amazon ecs php” which actually returns more useful results than “amazon php api”.

visit his site and use the other plugin unless it is the same one, in which case it works for me

I’m having a slight problem with this plugin, as txp:am_link just seems to link back to my own site.. (and not to the song on Amazon)

True – wonderful – but is there a way to get the charakters right? For example “Cesária Évora.” becomes “Ces�ria �vora”. Same thing with swedish characters as å, ä, ö. And it is only appearing at that place.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rmc_audioscrobbler (bsl_audioscrobbler evolved)

I was wondering if you or anyone you know of has planned to make use of all the other RSS or XML data feeds from audioscrobbler in a TP plug-in.

They’ve got alot of data feeds, personally I’d love to have my listening habits charted out on a page, ie. top 10/20/30 most listened to artists, albums, songs.

Also, the bls_audioscrobbler plug in didn’t allow more than one instance of the plug-in on on the same page. I haven’t implimented your plug-in, but if more than one instance (ex. most recent at top of page, ten most recent at bottom, to conserve header space etc… ) isn’t allowed, I was wondering if it’s been suggested.
