Re: WebNowPlaying plugin. Supports sites like Youtube and Soundcloud

Post by shoek »

Anyone else experiencing problems with Spotify Desktop player when using a Rainmeter skin that is interfacing with WebNowPlaying and the Spotify app has been modified by Spicetify CLI to inject the WebNowPlaying plugin?

This combo has worked well for me for some time, but now with Spotify 1.1.34 it is no longer working. Rainmeter logs show errors every second when the skin queries the metadata from Spotify via WebNowPlaying.

I'm using this skin, but in my tests it occurs with others

If you are using the Desktop player use nowplaying, that works with it.

I think there's a problem with the cover art URL for YouTube Music. When I'm using music.google.com I can get the album art to show properly in a skin but the cover art never downloads when using music.youtube.com.

You wanna maybe provide code snippets or elaborate more? I don't know what you mean by shortcuts and there's nothing in this plugin that is just limited to a set number so I don't know what you could be referring to

First, thank you very much for this Plugin.
On Youtube it works fine, but when I am switching to Amazon Music, it somehow cant get any data.
Maybe, because I use Amazon Music Germany? (Domain : https://music.amazon.de/ and not https://music.amazon.com/)

Woul be happy to hear from you,

The URL shouldn't matter since that's still within the match pattern, but the DOM on the German version might just be different, breaking the selections. Haven't used amazon music before but a lot can change on these big sites in a couple years. I will try to fix it in my fork of the companion, but it's only signed by mozilla right now, and only on my github repo since it's just a personal edit. Idk if you can install unsigned extensions in chrome or edge since I just use it in firefox. If you use chrome I'm not sure I can get it signed, since it's a fork of an extension that's already on the chrome web store. Plus they charge a $5 fee just to get a webextension signed lol. If you do use firefox I can just send you a download link. Otherwise, if tjhrulz doesn't mind, I will try getting it signed for chrome. Or I can just edit AmazonMusic.js so it works on the German page and send it to tjhrulz

For those who want to get WebNowPlaying on Chrome (or any Chromium browser), just download the zip from here, unzip the .zip file into a random folder and in the Extension page of your browser enable Developer Mode then click Load unpacked and choose the folder where you unzipped the file, it should be added to your extensions now.
