We7 Scrobbler

At last, a way to scrobble your We7 listens to last.fm

What is it?

We7 Scrobbler is a Greasemonkey script that lets you report your We7 streams to your profile at last.fm.
You can download it here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/45683

Why do I want that?

Because last.fm do really good recommendations (and other stuff) based on what you actually listen to, and it’s nice to have the stuff you listen to on We7 included.

What is Greasemonkey?

Greasemonkey is a plugin for Firefox, that allows the user of the browser to run extra bits of Javascript in the pages they visit.
You can get it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

How do I install it?

It’s simple. Assuming you have the Greasemonkey plugin installed, click the Install button on the userscripts.org page, then click Install again on the dialog box that pops up.

Scrobble StatusOnce that is done, go to We7.com and you’ll be prompted for your last.fm username and password. The script will then log you in, and it’ll let you know you are logged in successfully with an OK next to the player controls. If it says ERROR, then refresh the page to try entering your details again.

From now on, whenever you listen to something, it will be reported to your last.fm account.

How do I use it?

Scrobbled IconListen to something on We7. Go on, pick something. Once you have listened to half, or 4 minutes (whichever is first), the listen will be reported, and a little icon will appear to the left of the track title in the player to let you know that this has happened.

Scrobble Status OffIf you want to listen and not have it reported, click the OK icon to turn it into an OFF icon. Now you can listen to all your guilty pleasures without the world knowing. Click the OFF to turn it back to an OK, and you’ll be reporting again.

Is it safe?

Of course. Your last.fm details are only sent to last.fm by HTTPS, and not to We7 or anyone else. They are stored locally in your browser for the next time you visit. If you want to delete your stored username and password, go to about:config and type we7scrobbler in to the filter box at the top, then right click on the items you want to delete and click ‘Reset’.

Is it part of We7?

Absolutely not. It is completely separate and unofficial, like this website. Please do not contact We7 about this script, as they will not be able to help you, and are very busy making the site better. If you need any help, please contact me using the discussion forum (see below).

Can I ask you something else?

Sure you can, just leave a comment on the discussion forum at userscripts, and I’ll do my best to answer it.

How can I comment or leave a review?

As I can’t get a comments form to work here, all comments and discussion should go to the forum on userscripts, found at http://userscripts.org/scripts/discuss/45683. You can also leave a review on the script by going here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/reviews/45683.
