Last.fm Player for the N95 8GB

22 04 2008

Last.fm for the N95 8GB Thanks to ACUK over at Jaiku.com I now have a working Last.fm player on my N95 8GB.

Its called Blastfm and can be downloaded from M3Solutions , but there is a trick to installing on your N95 8GB, don’t install on the internal memory.

Yes, you heard me right, don’t install on the internal memory, install instead on the mass storage memory. I don’t know why it doesn’t work installing to the internal, but who cares.

The blastfm.sis file will install 3 seperate applications, Python for S60, S60 Internet Radio and finally Blastfm.

First run blastfm and add your username & password and select an artist to play, then once connected open the S60 Internet Radio app and select the ‘Last.fm’ station. Now go back to the blastfm app and you will be able to see & hear what song is playing.

Be aware this is a 128k stream in the S60 Internet Radio player so ensure you have a unlimited data plan or you can use over wifi.

Installed everything to the memory card. Opened BlastFm and put in my account details. Chose connection via WiFi – it then closed. Internet radio app works OK – but doesn’t show the BlastFm station. Every time I open BlastFm it closes immediately. Installed on a N95.

Is it possible to use it on a Nokia E90? Trying to install it gives Certificate error. I’ve also tried by signing it with a developer certificate, but another Certificate error is given… any hope to get it working?

Thanks!

When I first install blastfm and was running over Wifi I was able to SKIP tracks and see the next rack image, but when I switched to 3G I lost that ability and never got it back over Wifi or 3G.

As the first Last.fm player for the S60 this is a good attempt, but could be made much much better. I just hope the developer is working hard at an update to it.

This application has become unresponsive due to changes to the API server side. I do not have time myself to fix it but if anyone wants to have a go then the source code is available in SourceForge
http://sourceforge.net/projects/blastfm/

The problem is that the Shoutcast stream no longer changes when tuning/skipping etc. Instead last.fm now serves an .xspf playlist. Any solution will need to process this and probably perform its own streaming.

yes you can download to the N95, but I wouldn’t bother as Mobbler is a much better Last.fm client for N95. Download from http://code.google.com/p/mobbler/
