Plasma 4 Widgets

Description:

i don't like depending on the flash-based browser player for last.fm, but as they recently shut down their free streaming api and the desktop clients stopped working, i got myself a subscription and wrote a simple python plasmoid to listen to last.fm streams via their new api.

NOTE: you will need a last.fm subscription, they only allow subscribers to use their streaming api these days.

it's still very basic (but as the main logic is done, adding other stuff will be quite easy):

currently there are only play, stop & skip buttons, the love, ban, etc. functionality isn't implemented yet.

an svn repository is available on the project homepage now, in case you want to peek into the sourcecode.

Hello!

I'm unable to make this plasmoid to work. I load it, enter my last.fm username (i'm a subscriber) and then click to play button, but it gets loading for ever.
I'm doing something wrong?

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10.

Thanks in advanced!

Agreed, same here. Installed the plasmoid through the desktop installer. Entered user name and nothing.

Please advise.

I thought this seemed neat, but it doesn't work. There is no place to put a password, how is it going to know how to login to Last.fm?

Apparently I'm not alone but its been ignored as an issue.

Just wanted to drop a note saying thanks. The code in your plasmoid helped me quite a bit when writing my own, it's up here on kde-look if you are interested to see it http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=112825

The only Radioplayer stoped working for me and i hate the adverstising.
When i change to KDE4 in autum this may be one of my favourite plasmoids!

ImportError: No module named lastfmtrack

Is this module supposed to be included with your package, or does it come with another package?
