NAME

lastfmsubmitd, lastfmsubmit - Last.fm submission daemon and helper  

SYNOPSIS

lastfmsubmitd [--debug] [--no-daemon] [--no-network] [--help]
lastfmsubmit [--encoding ENC] [--artist ARTIST] [--title TITLE] [--length LEN] [--time STAMP] [--album ALBUM] [--mbid TRACKID] [--stdout] [--debug] [--quiet] [--help]  

DESCRIPTION

lastfmsubmitd uses the Last.fm protocol to send information about played songs to a submission server. If network connectivity is lost or lastfmsubmitd is shut down, any unsubmitted songs will be saved to disk.

Song information is collected from one or more music players via a spool directory. All songs are submitted with the account information provided in the configuration file.

lastfmsubmit is a helper program meant to be invoked by music players. It handles setting the timestamp, encoding data as UTF-8, serializing it to send to lastfmsubmitd, and locking.
