    I just received an email from Last.fm:
    We're writing you to let you know that there will soon be a change to Last.fm radio that may affect you. Our stats show that you've listened to radio through an application that uses our old streaming protocol. On 1 December we will deprecate this old protocol, so in some applications radio will no longer work.
    If you would like to continue enjoying Last.fm Radio, consider upgrading to a new application.

    Will this affect MediaPortal 1.2.3?
    If so, will there be a fix?

    Thanks.

    I just looked in the Bugtracker - ID: 0004065. It looked like last.fm would be removed from MP. Is that correct?

    Yes we will have to remove last.fm radio. The API we are using is being turned off and there is no replacement. The plugin will therefore be removed in 1.3 beta

    The new API only allows subscribers which is not ideal but I am looking at that now.

    Thanks - I understand (but it's a pity). You don't have a good (free) replacement ;) ?

    According to Last.fm it should be possible to get an API account for non-commercial use. Would'nt that be sufficient?
    I am having a strong interest in keeping this plugin alive, because I really loved to listen to Last.fm music.
    Is there probably anything I could do to contribute to this?

    Cheers,

    We have an account and there will be a replacement but you can only steam music if you are a (paid up) subscriber.

    If you are a subscriber then watch this space :cool: If not then there is unfortunately nothing we can do :(

    Thanks for the info. It's 3,- € per month in Germany and to me it would be worth it.
    So I 'll keep an eye on this.

    That’s what Lehmden said. Watched flags get migrated when updating to 2.2. Also a new plugin is almost finished to backup watched flags and restore later.

    I don't think this is something you should have to care about. If people are bothered by performance issues related to the all channels group, they can use the "hide all channels group" setting or configure the all channels group to be the last group. If the current group is the all channels group, the channel is guaranteed to be...
