Material Player for Rainmeter

141 Favourites
A clean and simple Material Design skin for Rainmeter's NowPlaying plugin.  

  Play/pause when cover art is left-clicked
 ✓ Next song when cover art is right-clicked
 ✓ Previous song when cover art is middle-clicked
  Clickable playback bar to seek within track
  Conforms to Material Design spec: colors, typography, etc.
  Responsive, yet low CPU overhead

1.2 - 2015/03/27 - Put images inside Resources/Images folder to make the installation nicer. Added new control features per Indefinitions' suggestion.
1.1 - 2015/03/23 - Put fonts inside Resources/Fonts folder so Rainmeter can find them properly. Oops!
1.0 - 2015/03/22 - Initial release.

By the way, is it possible to hide the player if nothing's playing on it? Cause I've currently set it on topmost so when I'm not playing anything it'll show up when I'm in fullscreen video mode, which is kinda irritating :3

Uhm, just tagging here: I modified this plugin so it'll fit into the windows 10 taskbar, if anyone's interested :/

Anyway, it's here:…

sanityvampire, I really hoped you didn't mind this cause I really like this skin, but it wasn't scalable so I manually scaled each value :P

Source code is available at…, but as usual, all credits to sanityvampire for the original code, I only changed a few numbers :/

I don't mind at all! If I recall correctly, I borrowed much of the logic for Material Player from another skin, so I don't really feel as though it represents significant development work on my part. I'm mostly responsible for the aesthetic design... which, of course, I mostly borrowed from Google.

So have at it. I starred your repo.

To select a player click edit and in [mPlayer] enter the name of the music player you are using behind PlayerName=
so for example if you are using spotify you will get this      PlayerName=Spotify

Hi there, I have been using Material Player for sometime now and it has been working perfectly but as of 31/12/2016 it has stopped displaying what song is playing when I am listening to music. I use iTunes to listen to music and I have made sure that the PlayerName = iTunes and I have refreshed the skin multiple times but I have still found no success.

Any help in this situation would be great!

For anyone trying to get this to work for iTunes go into the edit skin and edit the part that says PlayerName=#Player# to PlayerName=iTunes under [mPlayer].

(Should be 22nd line down from top for those who can't find it)

Is it possible to use this with MusicBee? If so - how can I do that?
joekillum's avatar
I'm pretty sure I did something wrong when installing this. I changed the Player parameter to MusicBee and the mouse buttons to control the music work fine but none of the info like the artist, album or song name show up at all. What else should I have done?

Was quick and easy to install. The problem is, when I close media player, this player just flashes. Any idea why?
