"Web Now Playing" plugin for YouTube

Post by Hoosier »

Hi all,
I'm looking for a minimalistic skin that shows, at least, artist name and possibly song title from YouTube.
I need to be able to resize it and change the color to fit the attached desktop that I've crated for myself.
I've serched hundreds of skins this weekend but just haven't found the right one.
All suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks,
KJ

Update,
I"ve installed the extension for Firefox and am trying to connect the WebNowPlaying skin from the Vecto skin pack.
Still no joy.

You probably will have to try out skins which are using the WebNowPlaying plugin. There are tons of such skins out there. Search for the "WebNowPlaying" term in the Share Your Creations section of this forum. Most probably these skins are located into the Sound, Music and Visualizers section.

What do you mean by "trying to connect the WebNowPlaying skin"? Do you want to install it? Because this is the first step.
If you want to do this, just double click the downloaded .rmskin file, to get both the skin and the appropriate version of the plugin installed.

Yes, but the Vecto skin does not support the WebNowPlaying plugin, it was coded to only use the NowPlaying plugin.

Save this code as "Song Info Web.ini" in "Skins\Vecto\Song Info" folder. Refresh All in Rainmeter. Now there will be 2 variants for song info, load the 'web' variant and if you set up Firefox the way DVO explained, you will see the artist and title.

Yep, it seems I (again) succeeded in missing the name of the skin. However a link would be nice from anyone who is asking for help here (Hoosier this time).
