CLN by toastbrotpascal CLN by toastbrotpascal
Attention. Latest (2.1 beta) version of Rainmeter needed for this skin to work. As always, grab it directly from the official Rainmeter site here: [link]

This is CLN for Rainmeter.
Thanks to =poiru's nowPlaying plugin, it supports the following players:

-iTunes Client
-Media Player Classic

You might want to check the official site of this new plug-in out: [link] and if you feel like it, I'm sure he'll appreciate some donations, too.

The wallpaper in this preview is the gorgeous ".85" by ~bo0xVn. You can find it here: [link]

And finally, here's a tip from my side:

CLN comes with an config tool that opens the first time you lanch it. If you want to get back to that config-tool at any time, simply middle-click CLN somewhere.

As always, I appreciate your comments, :+fav:s and llamas :peace:

HI there!

I am new here and.... Think I don't dig it.
What is the point having such thing, when still, if I want to play anything the main player (iTunes in my case) shows up on the desktop?
I'd like to have just skin-player for Rainmeter that works/plays, lets me browse my playlists/albums via that skin without bothering iTunes... For that I would just need to have a button to start iTunes, innit?
Or maybe I am doing something wrong.
Could someone explain me how it should work, please?

Doesn't work with Spotify. Only the next and previous buttons work.

It appears that I am unable to get it to work with VLC? Has there been a change in the player that broke this skin's compatibility with VLC?

Looking for someone to do a new design for the default media player on my site.  The current one is just cover art graphics.  Actually looking for someone to do a real media player design.  The things that can be changed are the media buttons, the box that scrolls the title, volume bar, and current time (also the positions can't be changed).  The current default design can be seen here:…

If anyone can do this, please contact.

This will take a little bit of tweaking on my part to suit my needs, but it's still a really good skin. Good job.

i have VLC player and it says further steps needed because it have these (**) and when i click more im just redirected to the Home of Rainmeter? What shall i do? Please Help Thanks!Waaaah! Waaaah! I think I've fainted. 
Jono997 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016
I'm having a similar problem where it just doesn't work if I use VLC. It does work with Windows Media Player for me, so I have no idea what's wrong. Hopefully a solution is made soon.

This is the best is there anyway to add more colors to it? i want to use it with all my rainmeter skins. Great work!
Customs-n-Randomness Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
im using it with Spotify and it plays the music fine, but it doesn't show anything. No album artwork, no tracking, etc.  All it does for Spotify is play it and let you skip tracks.  Can someone lease provide me with a fix for this issue?
JpotatoTL2D Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Many thanks for your work!
This CLN skin helped me a lot, and now that rainmeter suport "Spectrum" like plugin (AudioLevel plugin in fact), I will create a greate Rainmeter player with different visualisation, and all integrated in the skin ; )

Well it's just an idea for now, I know that I can create Spectrum on Bars, Roundlines, or like a "time graph", but don't know how it wil respond with many pictures ^^"

in any case CLN is beautyfull and class, really a great and complete work !

My Rainmeter log gets filled with the error:  'ImageName: Unable to open: C:\Uses...Skins\CLN\\Colors\White\PlayPlay2.png.png' at the rate of about 2 every second.
JpotatoTL2D Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

It seems to be the name of your file "PlayPlay2.png.png" normally it's "PlayPlay2.png" if I remember, or that this graphic is missing from the skin folder, it can be corrupt too, re-download CLN and re-install it in rainmeter, for me CLN works without errors, then it can work the same for you : )

And the skin is surelly updated each ~2000ms, then each 2 seconds…

It can pause and play, but it doesnt show anything when it is actually playing. I'm using Spotify and I set it to that but for some reason it ONLY does this on my computer. My friends tried and boom boom success. What could be the problem?

You can find a few skins out there that monitor any audio running through the Primary Sound Driver, so that'd include any media player using it. They act like a VU meter. So if you have a look, you'll be sure to find one you like, even here on DeviantArt.

I love your skin and I'm using it a long time now.
But sadly Spotify is really bad supported...
Someone made an plugin for spotify (… ).

Is there a way you would remade your skin for Spotify with this plugin?
Would be awesome :squee:

In the meantime I made an addition skin that I use for seeing the cover arts.
I didn't do much, only read the cover with the spotify plugin and shows it above your plugin:…
halodk Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
Would you be willing to make the player transparent?
That would be awesome and I would certainly use it.

Is there are way of showing the album art for Spotify? I know it said it is not fully supported as a media player but I am hoping this can be edited :/

Y there a plugin compatible version for VLC 2.1.4 or 2.1.XX ?
BeMacized Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
It looks absolutely awesome, but when using it with spotify, it just displays the artist &songtitle, plus I'm only able to go skip the song, go to the previous, and play/pause it. Album art doesn't work, song progression bar is not functional, and neither can I use the volume slider. Can this be fixed in any way?:/

It's really cool, but there are many features not working. :(

Is it possible to edit the plugin on my own to get more functions for spotify working?
