Just registered to comment on this thread as this is the only thing missing for me in Rainmeter, a Spotify Plugin..raptor wrote:Time for an update!
As we are all aware of, 8 days is pushing the limit of "a few days". Seems like i overestimated my own ability to get this project done quickly. There have been several new issues after my last post, that makes it pretty obvious why Spotify is not a part of the NowPlaying plugin. The methods used for retrieving information are highly subject to change from spotify's side, seeing as it is not a documented or intended feature at all. However way i go about it, it will always be one "bad" patch away from breaking.
The good news is that the 64-bit version seems good to go. I'm currently setting up my 32-bit to test that one aswell, but i don't expect any issues (like i didn't the last 3 times either, so dont get too excited about it .).
Either way this goes, I'm currently making a git repository for it, so someone with more time (or skill), then me can continue on it. This does not mean that i wont be continuing development, it only means that someone with better time then me might do it in less time then i have (As this patch has taken forever).
Thanks for your continued patience, especially since I'm pushing it pretty far.
Cant get my 32-bit setup to work, but i assume the plugin does anyhow. Feel like I've delayed this enough by now. Both versions attached to first post. Let me know if anything goes wrong.
Anyway, I'm trying to get this to work on my own made skin and I can't get it to work, I also tried using the old SoitaSpotify.ini just to see if that works and to check if my skin is broken but that didn't work either.
I'm using the 64-bit version of Rainmeter and the plugin.
Do you have any test skin you made that worked for you that you can upload to check if it works for me?
