It appears that musicBee (CD Art Display interface) isn't working. I haven't done too much in depth searching yet, but I've tried multiple skins including enigma (my gold standard) and I can say it isn't bad skins. It could be CAD, musicBee, or NowPlaying.

I'm just wondering if anyone can duplicate this? The issue is that the plugin appears to not be picking up anything from MusicBee -- it doesn't even realize its running. I'm using MusicBee v2.2.5069 and the latest stable version of Rainmeter (3.0.2) on Windows 7.

Edit: The CD Art Display plugin was disabled by MusicBee. If anyone else has this issue, make sure the CAD Plugin is enabled under MusicBee's plugin menu.

This could be a stupid question or the wrong place to ask but I'm new to rainmeter and learning still. Is there any way too change which sites this dll uses for lyrics? like add rapgenius or another site that has different music? Currently most of my songs have no lyrics on the websites chosen.

There is a chance that the plug would read cover arts with different name than folder.jpg/png ?
Lots of my covers have different names like: front, cover ect.

It must be an image contained in the music folder (where you have the songs), to test my player skin I use some images to display a cover art, with different names, even .bmp files and they're all correctly shown.

Hi.
Is anyone here?
I'm using NowPlaying plugin with AIMP3.60, and found two problems.

1. Can not get embeded cover image from a flac file with multi-tracks.
It's because AIMP add ":N" (N is 'track number -1' for each track) to filename.
This is good for searching lyrics on changing filename,
but FindCover() searchs cover from "X:\music\foo\bar.flac:0", and never found.

2. Can not get "year" (PlayerType=Year is always 0).
No code about "year" is found in PlayerAIMP.cpp

Below patch works fine for me, but not tested well.
Can anyone test (and commit?) it?

Code: Select all

Hi !

Awesome work here !
Is there a way to add some players by ourselves ? I'd like to add Sony Media Go :)
