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?

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?

And the more button just takes me to the front page of the Rainmeter site.

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'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.

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?

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 !
