ScrobbleShark is alive!

Thanks to a kind fellow from a new web app of mine called ScrobbleShark appears to be working. If you are one of the 100 people on earth who uses both Grooveshark and - and one of the 10 who also want your Grooveshark plays scrobbled to - then check it out. It supports automatic and manual scrobbling so you can try it out at first, just be sure to click 'pause scrobbling' after setting it up because automatic is the default option.

It's really easy to use. You login with your Google account, authenticate with, enter your Grooveshark username, and you are up and running. I need some beta testers so if you only use Grooveshark, why not join and give it a shot?

There are apps to visualize your listening history and other fun stuff. You can also meet people who have similar tastes in music, if you want to. It's really cool! Grooveshark is a great player and is great for the community and data mining possibilities. ScrobbleShark helps you enjoy the best of both services.

Let me know what you think if you try it.


  1. Hello, I've got accounts on all these services, but when I reach the page where it wants me to authorize the uplink to my grooveshark feeds, it keep saying "no tracks found". I've checked the "Songs I listen to" feed multiple time with no avail. Maybe its a bug?

  2. Yeah, it seems that it is an issue at Grooveshark end.

  3. @anonymous: Thanks for trying it! Please mail me with your grooveshark username and I'll see if I can find out what's going wrong.

    @ CvX!: I had some trouble getting feeds from GS and am now trying to fetch the feed 3 times before giving up. Looks like that still doesn't cut it though.

  4. Right now Grooveshark is not only lagging but also randomly skips a lot of songs in user feed. It remembered only 4 songs out of 12, and lags 10 more (which will eventually skip, I guess).
