Audioscrobbler
Can someone break down audioscrobbler for me? I don't seem to understand it. Is it purely statistical? What is it's function? How is the data collected?

It's sunday. And it's beautiful here in Brooklyn.

Re: Audioscrobbler
You download a plugin fo winamp or whatever player you use and when you play a song it sends the artist and title to the audioscrobbler database. It has no other function than to document your listening habits. Then it can remommend new music based on what similar listeners like or whatever.

Been meaning to join for a while, so I just did.

How often does the plugin update your profile?

Re: Audioscrobbler
generally, it submits every song you play in the middle of the track or so... ("Recent Tracks")

updates on the weekly charts are done weekly, but this may differ a bit

the "Top Artists" and "Top Tracks" are updated "periodically", depending on the size of your musical profile (as a very large profile only changes, if you played another big bunch of music).

also, read the FAQ
