Plugin to ping webserver and display raw response

Post by Julimiro »

I listen to music in a special way. A seperate laptop that's audio out is going to my PC's audio in. I can setup a websocket on the laptop to get the now playing info. How could I display the response in Rainmeters bar?

That's interesting. At first look, since a webscket already exists, maybe setting a webpage from the laptop and parsing it from your PC using WebParser could help. Or, you can check here, here or here for actual plugins or methods that "seem" to do what you want. If you manage to do it, sharing the details might help other users in the future, so it would be nice to summarize the process, eventually.
