[MUSIC] Rainmeter music not picking up song info

Post by toanbocdau »

Hi guys ! I'm just got into rainmeter lately and my set up is great. Except for the music.info not working, for somehow the music not picking up any song info on spotify. Yes i know i should look up google but i didn't understand any of them videos. So the best place to look for help gotta be on this forum right ?

I f*cked up the coding when i try to get it fixed but it still dont work. Is there anybody's code that work so i can copy ? That would be great <3

I will comment my codes down in the comment. Any help would be much appreciated :oops:

For Spotify to be fully supported by Rainmeter, follow the steps below:

1.Right click on the skin and choose Edit skin.
Replace, in all measures, where you see Plugin=NowPlaying.dll with Plugin=WebNowPlaying
Then refresh the skin.
2.Install WebNowPlaying_0.5.0.rmskin and the WebNowPlaying plugin will be installed automatically
https://github.com/tjhrulz/WebNowPlaying/releases
3. Access the link: https://www.deviantart.com/xenium-art/art/Advansity-UPDATED-09-FEB-2022-847234085
4. Follow instructions in the Music Player - Spotify Desktop Player section.

After following these steps, Spotify should work with your skin

Delete the folders "Spicetify" and "Spicetidy.cli", which should be located at "C: \ Users \ USERNAME".
Then enter the five commands again in PowerShell.
