Ok, this is an attempt to make the Dark.ini part of the skin to visually react to the player state changes, irrespective if they come from the skin or the player. I corrected some things that produced errors in the log, I left some things as they were, but overall it does it's job in the case of Winamp. Not sure if it'll work with Spotify, it will have to be tested against it. This can be of course "ported" to Lite.ini if desired, as I assume it's just a matter of different colors or icons. Be aware that the string value of [MeasureState] is inverted (i.e. will produce 'Pause' when playing and 'Play' when paused or stopped), to avoid creating another measure to do that for use within the bangs. The number value is the actual "true" state of the player:

While I won't guarantee this will work for Spotify, based on what CyberTheWorm said, I guess there's a good chance of working. Let me know what you think of it.
