Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-18
Soita for Rainmeter by =poiru is a milestone achievement. this deviation is not only featuring a great looking and well executed skin, but more importantly it is made to introduce a long overdue plugin to the app of rainmeter, so that you can now use almost any media player in conjunction with rainmeter and then control said player through according skins.

in other words: the skinner doesn't have to decide for only one player support anymore and can now support them all with his rainmeter skin. just how great is that?

Hello, looking to make a player to play music automatically every time someone logs in to his/her computer. I downloaded this amazing looking skin for the rainmeter, to get ideas and see the code, but I don't understand, the player does not playing anything. 

I changed the [mpPlayer] with wmp - windows media player - and when i try to open it from the button it does nothing, also it has N/As. I don't know what to do, there are no errors or anything, it's just not working for me.

Is it possible to resize the player window? I want it to display the album and song titles completely. I have a 32" monitor, so double the size would be nice.

The other thing is, that i would like to disable the PROGRESS display, but nullifying the code lines leads only to a "%1%" instead of the PROGRESS.

I got it so that when I click 'open player' on the bottom right corner, it opens Spotify but it doesn't actually display what I'm listening to on the skin. It stays at the default with no album cover and N/A with 00:00/00:00. I refreshed the skin, I made sure that I edited it properly, still nothing.

I am having the same problem. Also with other skins using the same plugin. I've been mucking around with the code trying to use the SpotifyPlugin.dll to feed the missing details. But I don't really know what I am doing. 

Please report back if you find a solution

Been using this for quite a while now and I've gotta say its one of my favorite music player skin so far. I'm keeping it on top of my other programs as a quick preview for what's playing. The simplicity and design low profile design of it works well for what I need it for. 
Thanks. :)

Im creating a basic music playback control interface using this NowPlaying plugin as well. Its got separate play and pause buttons, next track, previous track and a meter that displays the track title.

The first song I play after any boot up is fine, everything displays properly. If I open another file without closing the one currently playing, the track title also updates normally.
When I close the current one, the track title usually disappears and then never appears again when I open another file. I have to manually refresh Rainmeter to make it appear.
the worst thing is that its random. Sometimes it disappears other times it doesnt :(

Anyone know why this happens and how I can fix it?

Seems others have been having trouble with VLC's latest build. Consider a better music player like foobar. It's tons better and actually makes the music better amplified and actually works with Soita using Rainmeter 3.0.2 r2161 build.

 HELP. I've installed Soita and it works, but for some odd reason the duration of the song, image of the song/album, rating and album name is not working. The area where the image is supposed to be displayed is just a grey, empty box, the album name is displayed as N/A and the duration of the song and how long I've been listening to it is set as 0. Can someone please help me make it work?

If you went to the doc docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plug… there try a fresh install of Soita. If that still doesn't help try a earlier version of Rainmeter. I don't use VLC so I cannot help you. Foobar is better, consider using that one instead with Zetro theme anonymousgrafix.deviantart.com…
