       lastfmsubmitd  uses  the  protocol  to  send information about
       played songs to a submission server. If network connectivity is lost or
       lastfmsubmitd  is  shut  down,  any  unsubmitted songs will be saved to

       Song information is collected from one or  more  music  players  via  a
       spool  directory.  All songs are submitted with the account information
       provided in the configuration file.

       lastfmsubmit is a helper program meant to be invoked by music  players.
       It  handles  setting the timestamp, encoding data as UTF-8, serializing
       it to send to lastfmsubmitd, and locking.
