Then, the [mPlayer] section, change the PlayerName= value to your player.
After saving the file, right-click on the skin and select 'Refresh Skin'. Done! :)

I managed to get this work with Youtube, with WebNowPlaying companion plug-in for chrome, but i copied some lines from their codes and put in to this plugin

For some reason the rating stars aren't functioning properly - they display the correct rating however, I cannot make any changes to the rating? Any advice?

Thank you for this skin. 
It works with foobar2000. It works great with WinAMP (even the latest 5.8 beta).
But, can it work with both? Or multiple?
I tried to edit .ini file this way and that way, but for me it works only with the first player stated.

(Yes, I know, why use multiple players? Latest WinAMP does not work well with mp3 files, at least not for me)

Hello! The player looks amazing but the link you provided for the PlayerName value (both on this page and in the soita.ini file) redirects to www.rainmeter.net/#playerlist and therefore I cannot setup this skin. Any help would be appreciated!

Hello, looking to make a player to play music automatically every time someone logs in to his/her computer. I downloaded this amazing looking skin for the rainmeter, to get ideas and see the code, but I don't understand, the player does not playing anything. 

I changed the [mpPlayer] with wmp - windows media player - and when i try to open it from the button it does nothing, also it has N/As. I don't know what to do, there are no errors or anything, it's just not working for me.

Is it possible to resize the player window? I want it to display the album and song titles completely. I have a 32" monitor, so double the size would be nice.

The other thing is, that i would like to disable the PROGRESS display, but nullifying the code lines leads only to a "%1%" instead of the PROGRESS.

that way you could see automatically when a stream is on?

I got it so that when I click 'open player' on the bottom right corner, it opens Spotify but it doesn't actually display what I'm listening to on the skin. It stays at the default with no album cover and N/A with 00:00/00:00. I refreshed the skin, I made sure that I edited it properly, still nothing.

I am having the same problem. Also with other skins using the same plugin. I've been mucking around with the code trying to use the SpotifyPlugin.dll to feed the missing details. But I don't really know what I am doing. 

Please report back if you find a solution

Considering he hasn't updated this in 4 years, I doubt it.
