ncmpcc+mpd+mpdscribble -- where is last.fm?

/I have mpd, mpdscribble and ncmpcpp running happily as near as i can tell.

Log file for mpdscribble says handshake is OK.

But how do I actually play last.fm via ncmpcpp? I cannot find this documentation (seems like a simple man X should let me know but I can't find X)

Also I am not set on mpdscribble, if scrobbly or any other scrobbler (is that a word?) is more highly recommended I am happy to switch, but whichever one you recommend please let me know how to play last.fm via ncmpcpp once the scrobbler is set up!

That's not what a scrobbler does. A scrobbler allows mpd to upload the information about the tracks you've played to your last.fm profile. Instead, try something like shell.fm to play last.fm

Or LastLonger.  It will let you play and download-to-MP3 Last.fm radio streams.

Whoops, thanks.  I did not know the definition of scrobbler!  So a scrobbler is to help last.fm help you? got it.

shell.fm looks awesome.

lastlonger looks way cool but seems very mean to battery life (this is for a netbook ;p)

Thanks to both of you!

mpd in git is able to play lastfm stuff, maybe you could give it a shot. But honestly, I haven't found out how to make it work, no idea where I can i.e. select the artist / genre / ...

Mpd 15.1 is able to play lastfm stuff, but package in extra repositary isn't compiled with lastfm streaming support ( known bugs : stream stop after one song, but you can loop playlist and last.fm streaming does not use metadata provided ).

To launch with mpc for example :
- mpc add lastfm://genre/rock
- mpc add lastfm://genre/artist
- mpc add lastfm://user/yourlastfmlogin/recommended
- mpc add lastfm://an artist/an artist/similarartists
etc ...

and mpc play

Are the songs you play with mpd automatically scrobbled?
