is there any way to check if Yu Last.fm is working? I can't see any difference in pidgin. Is there any place to check my TUNE status?
Hi, Joesse. You could do that in several ways. Ask your IM buddies for helping check. Add yourself as a buddy to check by yourself. However, this method cannot make sure what u see is the same as others. Open a debug window to check by clicking the Buddy List menu item at Help->Debug Window. Wish this help.
I have the same problem, I installed YuLastFM, but it's not updating my status. When I open the debug window, it says it can't find the song joker (%s). This is what I get:
(01:17:30) lastfm: Callback function for HTTP request called.
(01:17:30) lastfm: Song is "Lacrimosa - Fassade - 1. Satz"
(01:17:30) lastfm: Scrobbled right now.
(01:17:30) lastfm: This was at Thu Jan 1 01:00:00 1970.
(01:17:30) lastfm: Looking for song joker "%s".
(01:17:30) lastfm: Song joker not found …
(01:17:30) lastfm: If you think this is wrong, try resetting the song jokers!
(01:17:30) lastfm: Reset timeout to 60 seconds.
You can see it does receive song information, it's just unable to extract the data.
Ok, nevermind, I figured it out myself. I'm supposed to put %s in my status message myself, and then the plugin replaces it by the currently playing track. Nothing wrong with the plugin, sorry.
Unfortunately you totally get it wrong.
The error message you saw were coming from "Pidgin Last.fm Plugin", not " Yu Last.fm."
Actually, instead of replacing "token" in your IM status, "Yu Last.fm" setting now listening information into your Tune Status, which is a totally different status dedicated to now playing information.
In other words, you don't have to put anything in your status.
By the way, you may like to check if you activate "YuLastfm" module.
Yes, you're right. I figured that out too later. I thought I had disabled the last.fm plugin when I installed YuLastFM, but I hadn't. So YuLastFM just isn't working for me. Or should I do something to enable the Tune status?
No, you don't have to anything to enable Tune Status. It's simply there.
Tune Status is like an extra profile information, whose only purpose is showing which song or video your are listening/watching.
The following link shows some pictures which may help you understand "Tune Status" better.
For pidgin, it's not that obvious to tell whether YuLastfm works or not.
The best way to tell if it works is asking your IM friend if they can see your now playing information.
Would you mind letting us know which IM protocol you are using now?
I've asked my wife and she couldn't see my now playing info. I've also added myself to another MSN account (I got 3, running simultaneously in Pidgin) but didn't notice anything. I've tried both the default MSN protocol and the WLM protocol (MSN Pecan or something). Neither works for me it seems.
Which version of Pidgin and YuLastfm are you using?
And which OS do you run your Pidgin?
If possible, could you please also send me a copy or your debug information with "yulastfm" filter applied?
Thanks for your help.
I'm running Pidgin 2.7.1 on Windows Vista (I know, I deserve things not to work…).
I don't know how to apply a filter in the debug window, but here's what it says about yulastfm:
(21:11:07) yulastfm: : parsing xml
(21:11:07) yulastfm: : lfm status: ok
(21:11:07) yulastfm: : web query status: ok
And then later:
(21:11:13) yulastfm: : timeout continues.
It's nothing to do with Vista.
I believe there must be sth getting wrong.
I will look into this problem.
Before I find what's going wrong, you may try the following version, which I currently use.
It works well for me.
Henry, thanks for reporting this.
I really appreciate it.
I tried downloading the latest version you posted, and it still doesn't work. Here's what I'm getting:
(12:02:26) yulastfm: : http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=user.getrecenttracks&user=teh1337st&limit=1&api_key=7aed2418de442e85a6e7af89f325d8f6
(12:02:26) yulastfm: : timeout continues.
(12:02:29) yulastfm: : parsing xml
(12:02:29) yulastfm: : lfm status: ok
(12:02:29) yulastfm: : web query status: ok
(12:02:29) yulastfm: :
The feed has my current song… but not sure why the plugin doesn't recognize it. Little help? Thanks!
Did you mean the link I provided in this thread?
It works fine for me.
My Pidgin version is 2.7.3.
Try upgrading your and go Tool->YuLastfm->Refresh Tune.
Make sure your status over last.fm is updated.
If you're still not able to get it works, come back to this forum
and I will help you figure out what's going on out there… hopefully
Good Luck :D
Yo, it works! I was just being impatient. Thx a bunch for this awesome plugin!
Glad to know it works for you
If gtk2-perl problem could be solved in the future, it could be even better
