.raptor are you just planning on going the route of NowPlaying and just have the artwork stored in temp?

Also just as an FYI to everyone the NowPlaying controls still do not work with the new update of Spotify desktop (1.0.77.338.g758ebd78) so still for the time being the only way to have controls is to use the Spotify plugins bangs and be a premium user.

Given that I basically got a we will let people know and they marked the issue as fixed I am going to open a new issue on their site so discussion can resume, I will post a new link shortly they closed the issue board to do some rearranging and I will have to wait a day or two to open a new issue to get a status report on this.

I got Spotify to reopen the issue now, apparently putting them on blast on twitter works better than PMing people. Issue can still be found at https://community.spotify.com/t5/Ongoin ... -p/4409722

Awesome thanks!

I bumped my skin's plugin version to the latest 2.1.1 in skin version 3.1 and everything is working perfectly again - at least on my end. https://fuckyeahlucas.deviantart.com/ar ... -594025385

@Dev: I hope you are still watching this thread? :) The plugin logs "invalid resolution" of the albumcover, although 640 should be still supported..? Moreover, if two skins use the plugin at the same time they confuse album covers.

Hey guys, i'm new here and in Rainmeter :welcome: . Could really use some help.
I'm trying to use this with the Monstercat visualizer, but it only show the first artist name.
Is it possible to make it show the name of all the artists involved on the track?

I'm using it to stream a playlist and i must give credit to all artists involved.

so i got this all to work with the most recent version 2.1.4. however, with repeat, i only get values of 0/1. github says 2 is also a value which is 'context', i assume that means 'all'. but it doesn't matter if i have that or single track, it only gives a value of 1. and then off is obviously a value of 0.

Alright, I saw somewhere that intermediate volume control was no longer possible, how true is this? I have been beating my head into the desk for days trying to find some kind of work around using extra measures doing calcs, calling variables no matter what I do it breaks every time and kills the volume entirely. I noticed the volume measures between 0-1.00 so logically you would just (MeasureVolume-0.05), The measure calculates properly according to the plugin, but when you call that as your volume argument it changes the volume to -0.05, Not only that but it locks you out of volume control entirely. Setting a button to do the same in calc in the positive direction will not respond. Is this due to a calc loop I am over looking?

i had the same issue you did. what i did to overcome this issue was i have a string that displays the volume percentage. so 0-100(even tho the measure only calculates 0.00-1.00

i then created an inputtext plugin measure where i can type in the percentage i want it to adjust the volume. so i can just type in '25' and it will set the volume to that.

here are the measures for my spotify media as well as the volume, then lastly one to calculate the percentage for the string meter to display the volume percentage:

Code: Select all

[MediaPlayer_1]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SpotifyPlugin
PlayerName=Spotify
DisableLeadingZero=1
Disabled=1
Group=Spotify

[Volume_1]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SpotifyPlugin.dll
PlayerName=Spotify
Type=Volume
Disabled=1
Group=Spotify

[Volume_Calc]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(Volume_#mPlayer# * 100)
DynamicVariables=1



below here will be what i have listed for the string meter and inputtext to adjust it:

Code: Select all

[Volume_Button_Toggle]
Meter=String
MeasureName=Volume_Calc
X=(#Scale# * 159)
Y=(#Scale# * 44)
W=(#Scale# * 55)
FontColor=#Outline_Color#
;SolidColor=255,255,255,150
FontSize=(#Scale# * 9)
PreserveAspectRatio=1
DynamicVariables=1
Hidden=1
ToolTipTitle=Player Volume at %1%
ToolTipText=Left click to adjust volume from 0-100.
Text=Vol: %1%
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure Volume_Button_Input "ExecuteBatch ALL"]
Group=Extension

[Volume_Button_Input]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=InputText
X=(#Scale# * 159)
Y=(#Scale# * 46)
H=(#Scale# * 10)
W=(#Scale# * 25)
DefaultValue=[Volume_Calc]
FocusDismiss=0
FontColor=0,0,0,255
FontFace=Calibri
FontSize=12
InputLimit=3
InputNumber=1
SolidColor=255,255,255,255
StringAlign=Center
OnDismissAction=[!Refresh]
Command1=[!CommandMeasure "MediaPlayer_#mPlayer#" "volume $UserInput$"]

This is what I have been trying to do, I want it to adjust the volume by 5% depending on which button I interact with, up or down.

It will always lock me out of volume control if i hit volume down, and set the volume to 0

Code: Select all

[MeasureVolume]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SpotifyPlugin
Type=Volume

[MeasureVolumeDown]
Measure=Calc
Formula=([MeasureVolume]-0.05)%100
DynamicVariables=1


[MeasureVolumeUp]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(MeasureVolume+0.05)%100
DynamicVariables=1

[Less]
Meter=Image
ImageName=minus2.png
X=-15r
y=-6r
H=12
W=12
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasurePlayer" "Volume [MeasureVolumeDown]"]
DynamicVariables=1

[More]
Meter=Image
ImageName=plus2.png
X=93r
y=r
H=12
W=12
LeftMouseUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasurePlayer" "Volume [MeasureVolumeUp]"]
DynamicVariables=1
