ZU music stats.

I found a very cool site, a few days back. Basically, you download a plugin for whatever program you use to listen to your music (winamp, windows media player, iTunes, and several more), and then this plugin sends information on the music you're listening to to the site.

You then have a profile, which compiles all the tracks you listen to, the tracks and artists you listen to the most, etc., etc.

Finally, it has a nifty little feature, which shows you anyone who has similar music taste to yours. So let's say you look at this list, and anyone who has a certain percentage of the same music on their list will get on your neighbors list. Quite cool, and I've already found several great new pieces of music by looking at other's lists.

Aaaanyways... Here is the site: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/
And here's my list: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/lord-of-shadow/


Finally, there's one more thing to mention, something that is the real point of this thread. They have groups set up, where it will make a big list of the most played songs and artists of everyone in that group. I've already made a ZU group: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/group/Zelda%2BUnverse

So. Everyone should sign up, download the plugin, join the Zu group... and then listen to their music as they normally would Within a few days, we'll start to see trends and the like among all our ZU posters. I've already set something like this up at another forum, and it's going very well.


Right now, this thread is in the general chat section, to bring it to people's attention and jumpstart the process, but I'll be moving it to the entertainment section after a few days.

Assuming, of course, that the response is favorable. If you all feel like crushing my hopes and dreams by ignoring this, then I'll have no choice but to unsticky this entirely, and wait for it to descend into the depths of... old-threaddom.


EDIT: Oh, one more thing... I threw together a little pic for the Zu group, but if someone can do something better (Zelda themed), I'll stick it up there.

EDIT: Another thing: if we have any music artists/musicians/remixers here in our community (I know of a few), speak up, give us a link to some of your music, and I'll add you to the Artists of the group.

EDIT: It seems we already had a group. Everyone who joined mine... use this one: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/group/...BZeldaUniverse

Re: ZU music stats.

Good idea LOS! I mean, we can find out what kind of ecclectic tastes everyone here at ZU has.

I'm at work right now, or I'd sign up for it right away. I'm just concerned if the plug-in has any sort of spyware along with it. My computer has been acting slow lately, and if it does slow my computer any more than it already is going, I'd have to stop it.

Anyway, looks promising. ^_^

Re: ZU music stats.

There's no spyware as far as I can tell, and my versions of Ad-aware and Spybot don't have any problems with it. Obviously I can't say for sure... but then again, they have a huge community and hundreds of members there, and I doubt they would, if they were distributing spyware.

Anyways, glad I'm not the only one who likes this idea

And, we also have a user group set up for ZU and TAU people. So, a little late on the uptake there, l-o-s.
What? Noooo....!

This is... embarassing

ok. We'll use that one then. I'll disband the little group I just started, and everyone should join that one.

Re: ZU music stats.

Heh, yeah. You are pretty late on this little website, l-o-s. I enver joined because the site was always too slow for me :/. ANd it never interested me much.

It was mostly just random people on the chat who listened to tons of Metal, llike Sear, ked, and Luckz, who had the accounts on AudioScrobbler. Of course, the most listened to tracks on the ZU listing are Metal.... and the least listened to are thisngs like Rap, and Nu Metal (Linkin Park).

I guess it's time to add some VG Music to the most played list . I already saw BALTO as one of the top ones on yours l-o-s. Nice ^_^. *will add to the BALTO count soon*

Everyone shall listen to BALTO now and make it the most played song evar. Listen to it in your sleep if you must! o-o.

I will now run off and sign up.

EDIT: http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/GoldenChaos/

I guarantee it ends up being mostly VG and dotHack music, along with some other things I have...

Re: ZU music stats.

Meh I joined but when I restart winAMP, it just goes straight to winAMP. Instead of setting up my login information so it knows where to send it... >_>


Meh go it to work... I think

Re: ZU music stats.

I had the same problem, at first.

There's a point when it's installing the plugin that it asks if you want to use the Media Library version or the normal version... I chose the Media library version, but it turnsout my winAMP didn't have media library... so I went through and did the other version, and it worked fine.

Yes, it's quite disgraceful. We shall have to get some other stuff up there, and offset all of their preexisting music

And don't forget to join the group, GC.

Re: ZU music stats.

Thank you for that reminder l-o-s.... joined. Time to offset Metal with dotHack and video game music ^_^.

As of now, it is quite annoying that I don't see what I am playing get listed on their, andthe now playing is inaccurate. The "songs to update" confuses me. I have to play five songs for it to update once?

I got everything working with Winamp fine, and I also got it for iTunes, because I do occationally use that. But, I have found no problems. Everyone who has Winamp 2 and up should have the Media Library... I mean, it is where all your music is stored. I don't think I've seen a winamp without a music library yet.

Re: ZU music stats.

Winamp 2 never had a Media Libary. Only a Playlist Editor (as with all Winamp's to date), meaning you would have to use the other plug-in if you use winamp 2.x

Re: ZU music stats.

Seems like a cool thing.

I happen to use default windows CD player when listening through my computer at all. So no audioscrobbler for me .

I've only been sighed up for two days, now, and I'm still not sure how the update system works. Rest assured though... it does work

Re: ZU music stats.

Wow, only and only metal on those lists. I like some metal too, but the Rap/Hip-hop fans seem to not have signed up... hmm

I don't have anything against people who listen to metal rock, but I mean there's nothing but that on the list. I like Rammstein and other metal/rock bands, I'm just surprised to see people don't have a wider taste. I myself usually listen to some Tupac and then I switch to Green Day, and so on. I'm probably the only guy with a wider taste.

Well whatever, I'm gonna join. I feel forced to do so
