Some Tracks are not scrobbling at all, some of OCRemix music,  by the looks of it, for example:

1) BlueDrak3: Warframe "The Last Sequence" OC ReMix
MP3 file available on: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03506 (see Download)
No last.fm entry yet. (very recent track)

The music does NOT appear on the last tracks. If I change artist AND title to something different - it works, if I leave artist or title, it does not show up. 

But it's not just new music, I also tried:
2) LuIzA:  Chrono Trigger ...And in Her Self-Loathing and Despair, She Found Wrath OC ReMix
MP3 file available on: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01989
Last.fm entry: https://www.last.fm/music/Luiza/_/Chrono+Trigger+...And+in+Her+Self-Loathing+and+Despair,+She+Found+...

I tested mostly with foo_audioscrobbler 1.4.7 (foobar2k 1.3.14) but also checked latest Simple Last.fm Scrobbler (Android). It's not isolated to the app I think. Foobar console log says:
Audioscrobbler: Submitting track...
Audioscrobbler: Submission succeeded.
However it does not show on profile page and neither now-playing. If I play something else, it shows fine. 
It looks like something is happening to scrobbling on the last.fm or audioscrobbler side, it accepts submission but does not process it. No idea why OCRemix is affected.

I was testing submissions of those on my account from around 01:30 to 02:30 GMT time (2nd March)
Noticed as the music I listened earlier in the evening, at least 3-4 hours ago, didn't show up and started investigating it out.

Restarted foobar, tried different network access.

Certain characters and strings are blacklisted by the submissions service to prevent things like "Track 01.mp3" from being scrobbled.  For the tracks you've listed, I suspect it's the quotation marks, but I'm trying to verify.

Scrobbling seem to work using Clementine.

Looking at https://www.last.fm/music/Luiza/_/Chrono+Trigger+%27...And+in+Her+Self-Loathing+and+Despair,+She+Fou... it seem several other managed to scrobble it.

Perhaps an issue with escaping the string?

I think I found the problem

Looks like it does have problem with scrobbling "Album" with URL: "http://ocremix.org"
All OCRemix releases (singles) have this album.

As soon as I remove it and play again, it shows under "Now Playing" and scrobbles.

Can you confirm it does work on your end/other clients or is that audioscrobbler filtering out?

Pretty sure it was working fine before with foobar and "foo_audioscrobbler" plugin

Yes, that would explain it. http:// is on the blacklist.

Hi 

Is "http://" blacklisted even if sent urlencoded? it seems so!

I believe this might be issue  with foo_audioscrobbler
It seems that unusual Album with url broke scrobbling.

I have made workaround with foo_textdisplay which added function to foobar2k: $urlencode
That allowed remapping "Album" field in the plugin:
- from: [%album%]
- to: $urlencode([%album%])

and now tracks scrobble! (though not sure how "nice" that looks on the Album side for last.fm)

I have contacted plugin author as well.
thank you for your help
