Steampunk MediaPlayer Ywidget 1.0.14a

Location  Brick Moon


New version 1.0.14a of the Steampunk Media Player Konfabulator/Yahoo Widget with steampunk folder/file explorer. Windows only! Mac os/x compatibility in progress.

This version brings a steamy/Victorian file explorer into play. You can see it here:…

The widget can be resized - Hover the cursor over the widget. Press the CTRL key and use your mousewheel up or down. The widget will resize dynamically. Here is just one more of over 500 steampunk icons and widgets that I have created that will leave your Windows or Mac desktop looking absolutely spiffing. There is a whole set of the little thingies and I must say they do look very steampunk indeed! They really are a suitable replacement for the boring old default icons that come with Windows/Rocketdock/ObjectDock &c.

I created all the graphics myself inspired by a clock face from Italo Fortana. It is all my code with some solid help from Harry Whitfield.

STATUS:  Completed I think. Any bugs please report.

THINGS TO DO: Nothing more than a bug or two, if you find any.

NOTE: To make it look like the playlist above, you'll need the Centurion light SF font that you can get here: at Ufonts.

This is a Steampunk media player Yahoo Konfabulator widget based on my original Steampunk XWidget. A widget that will play your music but  take up only a tiny amount of your desktop. It is a lovely piece of eye-candy as well as being useful on your desktop.


You can control the volume level of the media player by moving the slider or pause/play the track by clicking on the play button. Next and Previous buttons will select the next track to play.

The Steampunk Media Player Yahoo Widget is a moveable widget that you can move anywhere around the desktop as you require. The widget is usable on all Windows.

These widgets work with all versions of Windows, they have also been tested on XP SP3, Vista Home, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, Windows 8 and 10 and it should work on all these with no problems whatsoever.

All javascript widgets need an engine to function, in this case the widget uses the Yahoo Widget Konfabulator engine. The engine interprets the javascript and creates the widget according to the XML description and using the images you provide.

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it has been tested on Vista, Windows 7/8  and 10.

You will,  of course, need the Yahoo widget engine for this widget to run. Link here… or the Mac version:…

On Windows the installation guide is simple, install yahoo widgets, download the widget zipfile, unzip it, double click on the media player widget and you are done!


1. Install yahoo widget SDK runtime engine - get it here:…
2. Download the gauge here from Deviantart
3. Unzip it
4. Double-click on the resulting .widget file and it will install and run



Instructions for running Yahoo widgets on Mac OS/X, all recent versions including Sierra.

Edit the following file: which is in /Users/xxx/Library/Preferences. Look for these lines:    <key>DockOpen</key>

Change to false if it is true.

Then you should be able to start Yahoo! Widgets and the menubar item should appear. Widgets can then be started from the menubar or by double-clicking them in the usual way.
