I have been using this for quite some time and think its awesome.. but when playing a video in fullscreen mode, there are no fullscreen controls. Is that a setting I have to enable or is that by design?

Can you put the link of the new version 3.0.4 or 3.0.5 in deviantart? firewall's banning depositfiles site :sad:
I put it in both directories by turn:

1st in userdirectory <C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets>
2nd in applicationdirectory <C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets>

No listing in the gadget-app.

And there's no next page yet.

Please ensure that the folder herarchy is correct see screenshot: [link] . I can't see any other reason why it is not displayed in the gadgets list.
Ah, got it. I renamed the folder "us-US" to "de-DE", created the playlist as you mentioned some posts before and now it works.

Thanks. :)
Language is German.

The thing is that the gadget can't creat playlist automaticaly because of the OS language (currently supported only English, Russian and Itallian) so you have to create the playlist manually. You can do this from Windows Media Player the name of the playlist must be "Imp's Player". Or you can do it by opening gadgets playlist and choosin one from the drop-down list in gadgets fly-out (in this case playlist will be crated automatically).
The problem is, that it won't show in the gadget list... it won't install. I also tried to expand the gadget-file and put it in the user- and after that in the application-directory. Nothing worked; so I asked, if it works. :(

Don't really understand what you mean by application-directory. Gadgets dirrectory is: C:\Users\<Your username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets
did you try to put the gadget folder there?

And one more question, did you try to navigate to the next page of the gadgets list? Yes, that's a dumb question but sometimes people forget simple things.
Hi. 1st of all: nice work, at least, it seems to be, because there's only one problem: it won't work for me.

Just a short question: does it work with Windows 7?

Thanks anyway.

It works on my Win 7. What do you mean doesn't work? What's the language of the OS?

i'd like it if you could have the green bars from the bars and waves set on it, or have an option that the visualation overrides album art too
realImp's avatar
The visualisation is taken directly from the Windows Media Player and is absolutely the same as chosen there. And the option you've requested to override album art will be included to the next release(which is most likely to be in 2 or 3 weeks as I'm pretty much busy now).
Anyway thanks for the feedback.

Brilliant, i've been looking for one of these for time!! Thanks a lot :)
P.S Any way to not show the details when you mouseover the album art? That would make it perfect

About your P.S.: yep, I can make that for You.
