If you haven’t experienced it yet, Google Music Beta is pretty awesome and was recently released to an undisclosed number of people as a trial beta period. Happy enough, I was one of those who got an early beta invitation and started developing scripts right away. One of the features I find crucial in any music players is the ability to Last.fm Scrobble, and thus the reason for this script. So here you have it, brand new and released a couple days into the Google Music Beta. Keep in mind this is a growing project, and will grow with the same feature list on my Amazon Cloud Player Last.fm version.

Software Requirements



Installation Directions

  1. If you’re using Firefox you’ll fist need to install Greasemonkey if you haven’t already. If you’re using Google Chrome you’re already set.

  2. Download/Install my script* into Greasemonkey or Chrome by following the simple prompts (You may need to restart your browser!).

  3. Go to your Google Music Player.

  4. In the top right next to Settings, Sign out, and Help you should now see “Last.fm Requires Authentication.” Click on this and grant access to my script to Scrobble for you from Last.fm. You should then be redirected back to your Google Music Player.

  5. You’re done! Enjoy. :-)

    I just read this on Daniel's site, if that's what U'r using and not the second option I posted. "...I’m not sure what may be happening. I believe Google is rolling out a slightly different version on their Google Music Player to various users as I’ve noticed a few cosmetic changes. I would assume they could have released an update which is causing a problem with the script, which I will fix the moment they roll this version out to me and I can reproduce the issue. I’ve been running Firefox 6.0.2 for a while now and haven’t noticed anything, so again I’m assuming it’s something Google just changed. If there is anything else you come across which may be the problem please do let me know. I’ll keep you up to date on what I find out. Thank you, Daniel Slaughter" He definitely would be the man to ask for problems beyond basic stuff which I might know simply from using it. I did need to log out and log back in to get the script to work the first time, but I'm guessing U tried that. Google updates their browser quite a bit and something may be off now, but I'm not having any issues with it. Let me know if U could if you do get it to work, I'd like to know what the problem was or might have been.
