Conky displaying what rhythmbox is playing (but can be use for 17 other players).
The Ring is for elapsed time.
Colors can be changed (of course !)

Thank you wlourf.. I have had a blast working with this..

I have updated the tar with the latest ring.lu and text.lua so we should be up to speed on all versions

thanks, I just update the tar file with modifications to your script : it can now catch art cover from vlc (online art-cover, not embedded art-cover in ID3 tag ... for the moment)

Could you make something for totem? I usually prefer to use that as my media player, but since I can't find a script for conky, I just use rythembox. If you can add totem support, that would be great! Also one of the nicer media scripts that I've seen so far.

Hello, I wrote a minimalistic plugin for totem : [link]
If you plan to use it, I can easily update this script for displaying totem info.
Just try the plugin and we can discuss about it on the conky mega-thread ;-)
