A simple re-code of one of my favorite skins' media interfaces. I took ~jamien-price's Taboo Vision and re-modified it to work with the now playing plugin. I put the title right-aligned, mostly because I prefer it that way. Anyway, make sure you have the latest Rainmeter to take advantage of NowPlaying.

Original from Taboo_Vision

:iconeditplz: Fixed a minor issue with long artist names colliding with long song titles. Please let me know if it happens to anyone else.

Does the Song titles, duration, and artists name not work with Spotify? I'm new to rainmeter and have been reading through the comments trying to figure everything out but I can't seem to figure out how to get them to show up. Is it because Spotify is only partially supported?

There is a Spotify DLL to help with this (…) but I think the skin has to use it explicitly... so yeah, without that, you only get partial information...

Loving this skin so far! The only thing I can't seem to fix is the "0" that shows up between the time signatures. Here is an example

If you can point me to wear to fix this that'd be amazing!

Why won't this work with iTunes?
theshickness's avatar
go under "edit skin" and any instance where you see "PlayerName" replace that with itunes

I tried doing that but with JetAudio (typed jetaudio instead of itunes).
Example: PlayerName=jetaudio
It's not working. Am I doing something wrong?

I don't mean to thread bump, but that's not a supported player. These are the only supported players (and their PlayerNames):…

Whenever I link it to Spotify, all of the buttons work, but the song names, artists, and timers don't show. I can't figure out how to fix that. It works fine with iTunes, but not for Spotify.

It is a semi-sportive player. It can be used by the buttons, but it can't get the song names, artists, and timers.…

Hi! I'm new to this whole Rainmeter system and I have one question. I just loaded this cool skin, but it doesn't display on my screen. Do you know what I did wrong? I'm pretty sure that the fault is in me, but if you know something that might be helpful, I would be very grateful (:
