Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do you call your data Listens?
A: The term scrobble is a trademarked term by Last.fm and we cannot use it. Instead we use the term listen.

Q: Is it safe for the Last.fm importer to be run twice?
A: Yes, it is. Running it twice will not cause duplicates in your listen history.

Q: I can't play music on the pages; what's going on?
A: Make sure your browser is allowing autoplaying media on listenbrainz.org.
If you have a Spotify account, you'll have much better results if you connect it to ListenBrainz. Otherwise you'll be limited to 30 second excerpts.

Q: I connected my Spotify account but the player just doesn't work
A: Before anything else, try disconnecting and reconnecting your Spotify account
Make sure you select the permissions to 'record listens and play music' or 'play music only'.
