I last wrote about Trakt Scrobbler halfway through 2019, and it has undergone significant changes since then. This post is an updated version of the previous version, with new information and a new guide on installation.
If you use Trakt, you’ll likely know about scrobbling – where your media player checks you into what you are watching automatically, so it gets marked as finished automatically. Not only does this let you automatically show in the ‘now watching’ section of the show and show your progress on your profile, but it lets you keep Trakt up to date without having to go on the site.
Don’t know what Trakt is? Check out my in-depth review on it.
I use VLC to watch my videos – the official plugin doesn’t work, so I went around looking around for an alternative. I found Trakt Scrobbler – a small Github repository with less than 20 stars. However, I was blown away by how great it is – allowing me to easily scrobble from VLC. It also supports various other players, such as MPV, MPC, and MPC-HE.
