When I paste the Foo Silk Last.fm script into the WHS Panel Mod it crashes for some reason. Here's the console log.

I have 2 issues:

1 - foo_silk-artistart don't download
2 - foo_silk-lastfm don't show statistics about my user. Maybe it's hide, i don't know.

printscreen here

I did upgrade but the error was before upgrade and remains.

AlbumArtDownloaderXUI-1.02  |  foo_silk-lastfm 1.3  |  foo_silk-albumart 1.4  |  foo_silk-artistart 1.2  |  foo_silk-playcount 1.1  |  .nfoo viewer 1.3

Hi there,
Sorry for my late reply.
The first error might be caused by the fact that the art application which is used to download the artist art can't find any images.
The second error is because your foobar window is a bit too small. If you make the foo_silk-lastfm script window a bit larger than you will find your stats right below your avatar.

I have the same problem with foo_silk-artistart. I recently did a fresh install and upgraded the script, but still no artist images even when I try popular artists that I know have images to grab.

It seems that the application (which is used to grab the artist images) stopped working due a change in the Last.fm API. I don't have a good solution for now, however, I'm still planning on releasing some of the new stuff I have been doing for this project. I just don't have enough time to polish it into something to put out in the open.

I'm not sure how this works... Do I still use last.fm through the website itself and just have foobar running? How do I get last.fm to play from within foobar...

Great theme but I can't make it work properly. The last.fm info are not showing. I am behind a proxy but that is set in Networking in fb2k. Scrobbling works perfectly and I can also get last.fm info from Library menu. But those panels on the top are empty, keeps saying "Hold on!". Even if I manually try to get artist pic, no pic comes.

Also, fb2k isn't exiting properly. It's responding ok but just not exiting.

For some reason why I updated the scrip to the album art I am not unable to adjust the size of it. Is there something I did wrong?

Just an idea that's been on my head for a while... would be cool if the last.fm plugin could display as well stats for all the users (top charts) or the most played songs by a given artists. Everytime I stumble with an artist I don't know, I always check their most played songs in last.fm, it quickly tells me their most known songs - which in many cases turn to be their best songs.

I second Phil2D idea… That would be cool indeed!
For now, whenever I listen to some unfamiliar artist I have to settle with two buttons in my config [link] . One goes to Last.fm Artist Biography (round black button) and the other goes to Last.fm Artist Top Tracks (round blue button).

Excellent Job!
Just one thing, I can't see the covers in the playlist (screen [link] ).

Why is that?

Thanks.

Hello!

I'd like to use the nfoo viewer only.
I copied foo_silk.js to the path below.
What else is needed to get it work?
I got this error msg in console:

"WSH Panel Mod (.nfoo Viewer v1.3 by MB): Parsing file "c:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\components\foo_silk.js"
Error: WSH Panel Mod (.nfoo Viewer v1.3 by MB): Microsoft JScript runtime error:
Automation server can't create object
Ln: 185, Col: 1
<source text only available in compile time>"

In step 5. of the instruction manual thing I can't find the AudioScrobbler, and when I skipped that step I couldn't find “foo_silk 4.0.fth” anywhere either.. Can you tell me where I messed up or where to find these pleasee? If I get this to work I'm pretty sure it would be epic, thanks.

foo_silk 4.0.fth should be in the same directory as the how-to pdf file.

Oh, thanks. But now I have another problem. The top artist charts aren't showing. Instead, "foo_silk-lastfm 1.3" shows. The artist art isn't showing either, and neither is anything in the .nfoo column. Also, the automatic artist/album art downloader needs this thing called COM Automation Server to work, and to make it work I need to access commandline.. but I have no idea at all where I can access it from or how.

Help? D: Thanks

you need an administrator account. And make sure you follow the instructions to setup the panels.
