Spotify Control | WORKING | Rainmeter Skin v4.3

396.6K Views1 Collected Privately


Spotify removed the important local API some time ago. This is why all skins broke.
For now we are using a different approach which - unfortunately - needs some tweaking. I hate dependencies but this is the way to go.
It gets harder and harder to keep this skin alive. But it is alive. It is 4 years old by now and still working flawlessly.

The following steps are MANDATORY for a working skin, unfortunately. Read all the instructions first, please!

0. Delete any old version of the old "Spicetify Rainmeter Skin" if you used this skin before.
1. Follow these instruction carefully (5 commands one after an other into PowerShell + Comprehensive Guide available): pastebin.com/87muQXZ2
1.1 If an error occurs at the beginning you need to enable Internet Explorer 11 within the Windows settings and start it once for a properly working PowerShell.
1.2 If an error occurs saying something about a backup, just delete "backup" from the last line "spicetify backup apply" --> "spicetify apply" and press ENTER again
1.3 If an error occurs at the end simply reinstall Spotify as suggested by the script.
2. Install Spotify Control Rainmeter skin.
3. Play a song in Spotify and benefit.
4. After every Spotify client update you need to re-do step #1 (entering all 5 PowerShell commands again)

Custom Right-Click-Menu for resizing (Fully scalable due to vector graphics)
Playback commands for free and premium users with on- and offline Spotify
Completely hidden when Spotify is closed

v1.0 Initial release (March 1, 2016)
v4.0 Redesign from scratch, new plugins for Spotify data fetching and color recognition, everything is new and relies on Spicetify by khanhas
v4.1 Bugfix
v4.2 Button related enhancements
v4.3 Updated color recognition plugin to the latest version, minor changes (January 12, 2020)

In case you find any bug or notice some weird behaviour I would be thankful if you could report it below.

Working well for me! Wondering if there is a way to make it not always show on top of windows?
