I was playing my library when last.fm switched from Spotify to YouTube and all of a sudden I was listening to plastic rattle and guns being cocked and who knows what else. The track was suppose to be by artist Camouflage and the track name was Winter but it wasn't playing. Some people showing off the assault weapons that they had just purchase was.... Then I pressed the button to proceed to the next track and one track played on Spotify and music ended had to manually start music back up again.

One I wish not to switch to YouTube -- should be a way of configuring not switch to YouTube. If the track isn't found on Spotify skip it if it isn't in the local library..

Two if I press the button to skip to the next track on the web pages, music should not stop playing.

Three YouTube Videos need to be screened to make sure that they are indeed for the track being played.

Seeing children (that was basically what the video was -- 18 and 19 year-olds) playing with assault weapons isn't something I want to see.

Yeah, i have similar problem with my most favorite track PinkiePieSwear - Flutterwonder. Instead it plays remix - Flutterwonder (SoGreatandPowerful Remix)

I did find a proper video for my track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWiwp...


Alex your video should go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viTkj... not what is going to.


On the old site you could make changes to the video by reporting it....that functionality seems to gone by the wayside.

Yes, your link is correct.

I spent a lot of time. I do not know how many, but approximately +200 videos was added by me. As i see, currently all my work was removed, after the transition to the new site. :(

I must start my work from scratch.

This is nothing new.
Previously one track contained several videos and, sadly, often the main one was incorrect (crappy cover, live recording, remix or whatnot..), BUT you could still flag them and navigate to the one you preferred.
Now last.fm shows only one video per track (maybe the most popular one from before or something like that) with no option to change/see any other.
I really hope this will improve soon.

And I doubt the references to all the other videos are deleted. Most likely they're still in their database, just not shown anywhere on the webpage. Probably they will be back if/when they restore/improve this video functionality.

That's essentially correct, we have the voting data, it simply needs to be restored along with the functionality to flag poor quality videos.

Will there be any way to block a particular video from my playlists?
On the old site flagging wasn't very effective. Often the video player used videos that I had already flagged as poor quality/wrong version/live/cover or whatnot.

last.fm did not show any view or voting numbers regarding videos and I have no idea how that many inappropriate videos managed to stay on top.

The only thing that the video in question had in common with the track was the words Winter and Camouflage was in the title of the YouTube video (How to Camouflage your rifle in Winter) . NO music just some Russian teenage age kids playing with assault weapons.
