Foobar2000 users have always been looking for a way to post their current track / song to facebook (foobar facebook now playing). well, with the helpof couple of apps you will finally be able to auto post foobar20000 track to Facebook
1st you will need to downloadand install foobar2000
2- create an account on Last.fm
3- Download and install Last.fm plugin component for foobar2000 from here Audio Scrobbler
To install components from the foobar2000 installer that you did not choose to install during the initial installation, just rerun the installer and select them; your settings will be kept intact. Please read on to learn about installing other components.
Note that this content applies to foobar2000 versions 1.1 and newer. If you’re using an older version, please upgrade now to utilize the new interface.
Step 1: Open the foobar2000 preferences dialog.
Step 2: Go to the Components page.
Step 3: Click the “Install…” button and select the component archive, or simply drag it to the list.
Step 4: Press “OK”, you will be prompted to restart foobar2000 in order to load the newly installed component.
- Or simply copy the component.dll file to Program Files > Foobar > components and restart your foorbar palayer
After installing the audioscrobbler component and restarting foobar, go to preferences > tools > Audioscrobbler and add your Last.fm account credentials and hit apply
4- Create an account with #IFTTT
and install the recipe I created from here
And that should basically grab the track you scrobbled to last.fm from foobar and post it to your facebook timeline
here’s a screenshot of how it looks on my Facebook timeline
