Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to scrobble tracks directly from a FiiO X3 with an external program such as QTScrob?

My poor iPod Classic bit the dust after many years of use and as Apple stopped manufacturing them, I had to find something else :D I've been using the Universal Scrobbler to keep my profile accurate when I'm out and about, but I admit it would be way easier to just be able to just plug in my device and read the song information from it instead, haha.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I'm also wondering about scrobbling from a FiiO product, but the X5iii instead. I've been thinking about buying one, but not until I know for sure scrobbling would work. :P

The X5iii has Google Play Store access though, so I'm sure it does. It just uses a custom version of an older Android version, so I an answer from someone who uses the X5iii and successfully is able to scrobble from it would be nice.

As for the X3, I'm not really sure about any of it. I hope we can both get an answer, though. :/

Maybe ask on the FiiO subreddit? That's where I asked my question about the X5iii.

If the X5iii can access the internet, there's a possibility that you may be able to scrobble in real-time with a wifi connection? But obviously I can't say for certain, haha.

I did as on the FiiO forums but not the subreddit, so I think that may be a good idea.

It doesn't look like the FiiO players could write any form of listening history that you could read out and use it like a scrobbler.log file with QtScrobbler or another app:

Concerning manual scrobbling there is a new free Windows desktop app called Last.fm Scrubbler that might be more comfortable than Universal Scrobbler.

Thanks for the shout, I'll check it out. However, I'm pretty happy with Universal Scrobbler now though, as it does exactly what I need :D I'm a subscriber on there so get all the neat extra features.
