1.0.8 is the latest version. I suggest you install MortstarĀ“s repo (found here: https://github.com/mortstar/repository-mortstar-addons) and install the addon from there. That way, you'll get updates automagically.

Can you put a new log file up on pastebin? And have you scanned all your music to the library?

In this case I belive Last.FM is unable to find any similar tracks.

If you compare these two:
http://www.last.fm/music/Massive+Attack/...e/+similar
and for example:
http://www.last.fm/music/Pink+Floyd/_/Time/+similar

Nothing I can do about it I'm afraid.

Thanx mate.

You can test by manipulating this link: http://www.last.fm/music/{Artist name}/_/{Track name}/+similar
Replacing the {Artist name} and {Track name}
If the resulting page gives you results, so should the addon given you have some of the similar tracks in your library.

Send me a log file if you run into any wierdness.

First of all, this is a really great addon!

It would be great if it would automatically detect whether a mysql database is used. I stumbled across the bug discussed earlier in this thread, where in the SQL SELECT statement:

Quote:order by random()

has to be replaced by:

Quote:order by rand()

In the main script file (pm.py) when using a shared mysql library (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW..._libraries). When using a local library, the script works fine "out of the box".

Keep up the good work!

I just tried to activate the script (1. 0.8) from the repository. But it fails with unsatisfied dependencies. As far as I can see one of the unsatisfied dependencies is the python module PIL. It does not exist any longer in the Eden environment of my Openelec installation. How can I resolve this?

ErlendSB - my sincere thanks for creating this script. Hope this add-on gets more attention from users, co-devs and the xbmc crew as this kind of functionality (vs apple genius) should be built-in Smile

I believe you can remove this line from addon.xml (located in %appdata%\XBMC\addons\script.lastfmplaylistgeneratorPM):
<import addon="script.module.pil" version="1.1.7"/>

I believe I don't need this dependency, as is has something to do with images.
Let me know if it works and I'll fix it for the next version.

ErlendSB: I have an issue with the script that when I start playing a song, it does find similar tracks, but after going to the second or third track in the discovered list, xbmc hangs completely. Any idea?

I've seen this too, when using the Artist slideshow addon. Could you try disabling it and see if that helps. I believe that when two addons running at the same time are listening for playback changes, it causes xbmc freeze. A bug report was filed a while ago. I'll bump it if it's still the case.

+1 for seeing this bug.....it's been a longstanding pain as the two addons are my most used! If this could be fixed for good it would be amazing!

in the meantime to use the script at all do we need to do the addon.xml edit you mentioned above?

Thanks so much - so happy this addon is still being worked on...as somebody mentioned above I;m surprised there hasn;t been more noise about this being built into XBMC...it's that essential Smile
