Chleon Player 1.1 by MarcoPixel Chleon Player 1.1 by MarcoPixel
A minimalistic media player which fits on your deskop every time! Changes the color automatically to the desktop background.
Supports all major media players (AIMP, iTunes, Winamp, VLC, etc...) and full Spotify support (thanks to .raptor for the Spotify plugin).



You need the newest version of Rainmeter Beta installed (3.3 or newer), otherwise the genre-based colors won't work!

This skin is not supported on Windows XP!

You might have to launch Spotify as Administrator to get the song information if it's not working.

Due to limitations of Rainmeter/the plugin used for the visualization the complete audio output of your system will be shown on the visualizer. For the best experience only play music. This is something I can’t fix.

- Live visualization of the audio output

Is there any way to make it update quicker from song to song with the spotify variant? I'm talking about the background color changing, album cover, artist name and song name
GokulSenpai Featured By Owner May 7, 2019  New Deviant

I know I'm very late but I implemented the volume using scroll up and down on the album cover art.

To do this, just add these 2 lines of code in to NowPlaying.ini under [MeterPlayPause] where there's the "LeftMouseDownAction=" line
In other words, The LeftMouseDownAction is under the [MeterPlayPause] and add those 2 lines just after the LeftMouseDownAction line.

MouseScrollUpAction=[!CommandMeasure MeasureNowPlaying "SetVolume +3"]
MouseScrollDownAction=[!CommandMeasure MeasureNowPlaying "SetVolume -3"]

And save it and refresh it. You should now be able to scroll over the album cover and control volume.

The play and forwards/backwards buttons aren't working anymore. I think it's because of the new Spotify update

I am running into two issues.

How do you use auto hiding function? I closed spotify app, but Chleon is still shown, with N/A N/A.

Hi thanks for the skin. But I want to add the Album title right below the track title. How do I do it? Thanks. :D
kkrommy Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017
Well, I tried editing and scaling it down some ( as the player is slightly too large, mainly long for me), I can't seem to do so without screwing other parts up. If anyone had a clue, it would be nice for some help!

Hello i cant get it to work with spotify , artwork and info isent shown , even do i run it as admin
ActualRealJamz Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
This issue is seemingly due to an update in Spotify's 'WebHelper' executable which, I would assume, is what outputs information in a readable format for other applications. Essentially you've two options here:

- Replace this executable with an older version (which may or may not hold following a Spotify update)
- Wait for a new version of .raptor's Spotify plugin, a replacement for this plugin or the features to be made native in Rainmeter
