Scrobbler plugin

Note

If you want to use Last.fm to scrobble your listens, your pod admin needs to set up an API account. Contact your pod admin if you have any questions.

The Scrobbler plugin enables you to submit (scrobble) listens to a scrobbler service. Scrobbling listens helps you build up a profile of your music tastes. It also enables you to keep a record of your listens.
