YouTube scrobbling

I've been scrobbling the band Tool through Scroball, because it's really the only way I can with them not being on streaming services.

Anyway, I noticed that the songs scrobble and the plays get added but the albums for the artist don't update. For instance I have 113 plays for the album Lateralus, this is the exact number I've had on Lateralus for years.

Over the past few days I've logged 40-50 Tool scrobbles but the albums don't update.

Any idea why this is?

It's my experience that scrobbling from youtube regardless of the add-on, app or program never logs in the album info because youtube simply doesn't carry that information in the same way it carries and presents artist and song names. Maybe I'm wrong, and if I am, I'd like to know an effective way to scrobble from youtube as well.

there is a Chrome extension, https://add0n.com/lastfm-scrobbler.html , that can scrobble album information as long as there is one available in lastfm. It works on youtube too....
