Help with Rainmeter skins?

Post by GeorgeStevens »

I have Rainmeter installed on my computer (that runs Windows XP). The skin I'm using is an anime skin that tells me everything plus the music I'm listening to if I use WinAmp. The thing is, I don't use WinAmp, I use iTunes. Is there a way to change which music player it describes? Will I have to change one of the codes/how do I do that?

Try looking here : https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plugins/audiolevel/

It may help you find the place ti change from WinAmp to iTunes.

It is commonly by an Option called: Player=

Be careful with Variables like this: #Player# If that is what you see there is another file (**.inc) or a key variable near the top of the main file.
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

Hello! Also if you struck, you can upload your skin here, and one of us can change it. :)

deflore08 is completely right. Post a code, please.

Acctually the above link should be: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual-beta/measures/nowplaying/
The AudioLevel plugin doesn't care too much about the sound source and doesn't return information about the played music. NowPlaying on the other hand is related to the used music player.
And recommend not to use the 4.3 version of Rainmeter. Even if 4.4 is a beta, it can be used with no fear, there are no problems, but has new features (as all new versions of Rainmeter).

Don't get a recent version of Rainmeter if you are trying to run this on Windows XP. Rainmeter no longer supports Windows XP.

You will have to use this older version:
