Artist title formatting used when looking up playcounts or
unloving tracks. Note that this does not change the underlying database storage mechanism which is always bound to
%artist%. Also, it will have no effect on

Simply listen and it will update in real time. A lookup is performed a few seconds after playback starts and assuming the server response is valid, all existing values for that track will be overwritten by Last.fm data. Server values always take precedence!
When you’ve listened to enough of a track for a count to scrobble, the playcount is incremented by one and the last played date is set. This is the only time data is written without contacting Last.fm because most scrobblers won’t submit until after the track has finished.

The field names are:
%lfm_playcount% %lfm_first_played% %lfm_last_played%

Importing Loved Tracks

Media Library. Check the
Console for full results. Note that matches are made against
%artist%. It’s not possible to support custom title formatting here.
