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?

I wish the code was correct in this player skin because it does not show the now playing for artist and song titles on the player for MediaMonkey and i have been looking all over the net for a code that will make media monkey show the now playing feature with a Rainmeter skin i already have!! Would be awesome if someone could help me with this... :(

I cannot get this working with MusicBee.  I have everything properly setup but it just won't work.  I have tried refreshing and loading and unloading.  I have tried this before and after starting MusicBee.  Basically, I have tried every combination of factors available to no success.  Does anyone have a solution?

No album name or cover art with Spotify, why?

Also, the Progress bar doesn't seem to be working either.

Spotify is not fully supported. You can use this…

Y there a plugin compatible version for VLC 2.1.4 or 2.1.XX ?
kantori Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
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?
