The script in the version you can download directly via amarok 1.4 (that is, 0.7.1) does the wrong check:

if system("convert")

instead of the right one:

if ! system ("convert")

Once you fix it, it works fine and sends the covers to FB

Bye and thx for the nice work

For Amarok 2.1, you must install NowPlaying for Amarok 2 : http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/NowPlaying+for+Amarok+2?content=107241

I will add this information to this homepage.

Thanks for using NowPlaying!

Alternatively, you can add the Facebook last.fm application (http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=2381079642) along with Amarok's built-in last.fm scrobbling support.

I've added this script to Amarok and configured it. When I set it up in Facebook I can get it to display properly in a tab but, when I try to add it to the wall it only displays a bunch of text that says:

"No content to display.

This box will not be visible to people who view your profile until this application adds content to it."

Is this a bug or is there something I need to do to make it display properly?

Hello!

The app now fills:
- a profile box for the new profile's wall with only title, artist and album
- a "narrow" profile box for the "Boxes" tab with only title, artist and album
- a "wide" profile box for the "Boxes" tab that you can configure

The tab is in development, don't use it now (unless you really listen to Muse all the day :))

Is there any chance you can make my most recently played song show up in my mini-feed?

Yes, there is! (but I will have to read about 10 times the Facebook Wiki before I understand how to do it :), so "wait and see"...)

Unfortunately, this doesn't work with the new Facebook (new.facebook.com). Can you update it?

On the new profile, the profile box is shown in the "Boxes" tab.

Odd... not showing up for me (even though I installed it).

Sorry, I made a mistake: when you add the app, and with the new Facebook profile, you must ask to have the profile box displayed, it isn't displayed by default. So to show it after adding the app, you must:

(0) Add the app by going to http://apps.facebook.com/amaroknowplaying/ if you didn't do it)

1) Go to an AmarokNowPlaying canvas page (for example http://apps.new/facebook.com/amaroknowplaying/index.php)

2) In the "Applications" menu at the top of screen (for new profile only), click "Edit settings for AmarokNowplaying"

3) A dialog should appear: in the "Profile" tab, click "(add)" near "Profile box: available"

4) Check in the "Boxes" tab for the AmarokNowPlaying box, and drag it to the good place

(I'm assuming you meant the http://apps.new.facebook.com/amaroknowplaying/ link)

Crap, now it's giving me that Facebook 404:

Error while loading page from AmarokNowPlaying

There are still a few kinks Facebook and the makers of AmarokNowPlaying are trying to iron out. We appreciate your patience as we try to fix these issues. Your problem has been logged - if it persists, please come back in a few days. Thanks!

However, it does look like this is showing up in multiple applications (video, for crying out loud!), so it might not be your fault. I'll keep you posted.

It works back now. I added on home pages a link to server statistics, to check if errors are due to hosting. In this case, just wait for it to come back.

Thanks for all feedbacks!
