doesn't work with spotify for me. I've selected the Spotify music player and I've got the DLL plugin from another skin, what else am I missing?

Hi. Spotify is partially supported player and Rainmeter does not support displaying cover art.
More at: Rainmeter docs.

although I've found that media buttons work. How do I get the cover and metadata work?

Thank you. This is it. Size is fixed. Changing size requires complete rework.

I LOVE this rmskin it's really pretty and looks great with my desktop, but some (a small percentage like 10%) of my covers aren't showing, I'm using foobar and foobar displays the cd cover, so why doesn't the skin? Any ideas?
THanks for all the good work!

I don't know what might be the problem. Make sure you have foo_cad plugin installed that is required by Rainmeter. I am using AIMP as my music player but I have installed the latest versions of foobar2000 and Rainmeter with cad plugin and it works fine. Maybe if you do not have cover images and foobar fetches it from net and Rainmeter fails to display it from some reason.

Please try some other Rainmeter skins to see if the same problem occures with them too. Hope you solve the problem.

Awesome, thanks for sharing!
May I ask you something? When I try to install a .rmskin file with rainmeter it shows a pop up with the following message:

'Invalid package:
The Skin Packager tool must be used to create valid .rmskin packages'.

My OS is Windows 8.1 and I've been having this issue since I started with Windows 8. Don't know why this happens, I never experienced this in Windows 7. Thanks for your attention and excuse my poor English :)

Sorry to hear that.

I don't know why it is happening. I can suggest you to install the latest version of Rainmeter and try again. If it does not work try removing Rainmeter and all configs and then doing clean install.

You can always right click on .rmskin package, open it with 7zip and extract content in Skins folder.

Hope you find the solution.

I've already tried uninstalling Rainmeter once or twice and it's still the same, no matter what I do.
By the moment I'll try to extract the files and put them in Skins folder as you said, thanks a lot :)

Awesome work!

Is it possible to set the clock to show up only while there is no music playing? I mean... The clock hide automatically when the music starts and when it stops show up again. I think it would be a cool feature, maybe modifying some config files or in a next version?

Sorry for my english.

Greetings.

Yes it is possible, but that behaviour is not inmplemented. I thought of it as if clock could be turned on or off. In future version, maybe...

All best.

I have this working using the SpotifyPlugin DLL. What a fantastic plugin. The coding is elegant and VERY well organized. I have learned SO MUCH tweaking this code for Spotify. It is just gorgeous. Thank you SO MUCH for creating it.

I think image mask is not applied. Try installing latest version of Rainmeter and Windows Platform Update if required. Read previous comment for a link.

hey i can't get the album art to show up. I have changed the player to itunes and have tried all the overlay options but nothing works. the song info shows however. also on my other album art skin the art displays properly. I have the latest version of rainmeter (3.2) and i have D2D turned on in the settings. It has to be a problem with the new imagemask feature because when i remove that line of code from [cover], the album art shows up but it is just a square image. i have win 7 64 bit. any thoughts?

I think it must be something with D2D rendering because when I deselect it in Rainmeter Settings I get the same result. None of the images that have mask on it is displayed. Maybe you do not have Windows update installed that is required by D2D. Try installing it as suggested by Rainmeter documentation at General-Use D2D rendering-Platform Update.

I have Win7x64 and it works for aero and basic themes.

Hope this helps.

The album art or any of the overlays are not showing for some reason. :(

Make sure you've selected your media player from settings and/or installed necessary plugin if required by media player. Decoration overlay on albumart can be "Border" a light transparent border on the round edge of albumart, or "Record" multiple lines on albumart that simulate vynil record.

Latest version of Rainmeter is required.

Play with options in settings to achieve desired effect. :)

Still doesn't work.
I have the latest version of rainmeter and correct plugin for foobar. I tried using a different player like itunes, but the album art still doesn't show.
