Thank you for reporting this.

It is working fine for me here on Emacs 28.2 and the latest Emms. I'm
wondering if there is a simpler explanation for this issue.

Can you please set the variables `emms-librefm-scrobbler-username', and
`emms-librefm-scrobbler-password' to an empty string ("") and then
configure your ~/.authinfo (or an other file understood by auth-source)
to house your username and password? This is the recommended way of
doing so (as per the Fine Manual).

Then make sure that you have a successful handshake.

Finally, play a track that is at least 30 seconds long, and also that is

If it is still not working, please report back and we'll enable some
debug info.
