scrobbyl: Automatically Scrobble your vinyl collection in real time

logged by @logbot 2010-10-30T19:05:00Z permalink

When we find them, we like to cover niche projects that show off the homebrew spirit that has always been strong in open source communities.

Scrobbyl is a Python utility to sample what’s spinning on your turntable and scrobble it to your Last.fm account.

Setup

How does it work?

First, authenticate Scrobbyl with your Last.fm account:

python lastfm.py auth

Next, make sure ffmpeg is in your PATH, hook up your turntable to your audio line in and run scrobbyl

./scrobbyl

Scrobbyl will create an audio fingerprint of your track, query it via the Echo Nest API, and update your Last.fm account.

The term scrobbyl is a mashup of scrobble and vinyl. Be sure and catch episode #35 with Max Howell, formerly of Last.fm, who built the original Last.fm Scrobbler.
