Listening to fully streamable albums in your client


Ago 29 2008, 13:01

After the site update it is no longer possible to listen to fully streamable albums
using the client, as the lastfm:// links that used to be in the album pages have disappeared.

It seems that it is a known regression and the staff is working to fix it.

Meanwhile, you can get the lastfm:// URL using this little shell script:

Hope it helps !!

    Another alternative is this GreaseMonkey script:

    I just noticed that the script doesn't work if there are parentheses in the album (or track) title, I get: bash: syntax error near unexpected token `(' It's no big deal, all I had to do was insert \ before and after the parentheses in the URL, like on file names \(\ etc. Or another solution is to replace ( with %28 and ) with %29. The second solution might be better because it can be applied to brackets as well using their codes. But I suppose it's possible for the script to do that as well? Here's an example that causes the error: 藤本卓也 (Fujimoto Takuya) -1996- 相棒

    It's not a problem in the script, actually. It is the shell which is complaining. Type the URL between quotes and problem solved: ./ "http://some/url/"
