    Default New tool for Scrobbling (etc) Serato ScratchLive...

    Heya!

    I've been working on a tool for live scrobbling, live now-playing and other stuff of that nature from Serato.

    It's incomplete, right now it just gives you console logs and nice Growl popups when stuff happens - but the hard bit's done. Writing the actual Scrobbling part - or a Twitter plugin - or something that pulls info about the current now-playing track from Last.fm API and shows it on a projector, etc - or all of the above, at once - would be pretty easy.

    Let me know what you think. Interested in alpha testers.

    * Mac only right now, but making it work on Windows should be quite easy as I wrote the whole thing in OOPHP.

    * disclosure: I work for Last.fm (but this is a personal project)

    A little bit of gold and a pager.

    Wondering if anyone's been using it or trying it out? Works really reliably for me, but then I'm the guy who made it...

    Hmm... the <username> text file doesn't seem to be generating to allow authorization.

    :-/

    Nothing is scrobbling thusfar... also the --lastfm syntax wasn't really well explained. Also, where is this text file generated?

    Are you to input your Last.fm password after the colon?

    Code:
    Last.fm options:
     -L or --lastfm <username>: 
      Scrobble / send 'Now Playing' to Last.fm for user <username>. 
      
      The first time you specify this, it will ask you to authorize the app to your 
      Last.fm account. The authorization information is stored in a file called 
      <username>-lastfm.txt

    Nevermind!

    I READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

    It's working great so far... I can see that it's showing my currently playing track. If I stop the decks that disappears.

    I'll keep experimenting. This is cool
