This latest version is working for me for the most part. I still can't find my top artists, but that could be because I joined fairly recently and haven't played around with lastfm long enough to get enough top artists. I'm able to do a search of rwparris2 and pull up videos, the similar artists and tag searches both work as well. awesome plug-in!

@nicoli_k: http://www.last.fm/listen/user/nicoli_k/personal "not enough content to play this station"

It'll get there eventually Smile

I'm not sure what you mean your 'own station'. If you mean this: http://www.last.fm/listen/user/nicoli_k/playlist then, no, the plugin doesn't work like that. For that to work, there would have to be videos for each of those playlist items on youtube already.

What the plugin does is look at your overall top artists, finds youtube videos to match that, and plays them. Take a look here: http://www.last.fm/user/nicoli_k/charts . That is where the data is coming from. It'll probably take a week or so for that information to get filled in.

For an idea of what it will eventually be, look at http://tv.timbormans.com/user/nicoli_k/ . That is the current version of LastTube and it apparently picks videos much more liberally than the one I'm using.

I hope that helps explain things. If you want to request anything else or ask any more questions feel free Smile

PS - XBMC has built-in last.fm functionality, so you can listen to your playlist there. it's music>last.fm>your profle. It just won't have any videos.

Has anyone tested this on xbmc for linux or xbmc for osx yet? I know there are problems with this plugin on the win32 version and am curious if those extend to other platforms...

What an awesome plugin. Do you have any new revisions planned? Im making my profile now for last.fm . I like your taste in music too. Sonicflood etc.. are great.

No revisions are planned at the moment. What else would you suggest?

@TheBurner: please note that after you make your last.fm profile, it may take a week or more of scrobbling music (see the last.fm site if you don't know what scrobbling is) before the "your top artists" part will work.

I'm trying to use it and keep telling me 'Can't connect to site' (I'm using spanish version of xbmc so it's an aproximation). Is really down the service? or I need to configure something to make it works? Thanks

This is not working for me. It does nothing. Not on my list. Not using an username or a band name.
Is there something I need to fix?
Thanks.

I only realized it was broken very recently, and was working on it earlier today. Just be patient please.

Edit : I'm at work and youtube is blocked, if anyone could grab it from the official addons' svn and try it and let me know.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search and search the forum before posting.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please read how to submit a proper bug report.

If you're interested in writing addons for xbmc, read docs and how-to for plugins and scripts ||| http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-addons/
