Yes, I agree. Thank you!balala wrote: ↑November 22nd, 2023, 7:01 pm After a test I probably would say that the problem resides in the WindowsNowPlaying.exe program itself. I say this because I tried to alter the RunCommand plugin measures in many way, replaced the OutputType options, removed the WindowsNowPlaying from the Parameter option and added a and so on, but had no success. Finally I tried running a command line in both ways, "normally" and as administrator, typing the appropriate command to execute the WindowsNowPlaying.exe program. But had no succes there either:
RunCommand.pngI think the WindowsNowPlaying.exe program should be altered in a way to can return the title and the artist even when there are Cyrillic letters, but this has to be done by the author. If you agree me, send him a PM, maybe he'll be able to make the needed update.
My thought at least...
I've sent a PM to the author, as he might be interested in joining our conversation.
Ah, interesting! Or even related to language of Windows UI.Yincognito wrote: ↑November 22nd, 2023, 8:35 pm Ah, yeah, forgot that this works with browsers so didn't think to try a YT video - thanks for reminding me that!
Unfortunately, it's the same behavior:

The fact that it works for you and not for me in CMD might have something to do with the installed keyboard(s) - just a guess...
Thanks that tested!
Meanwhile, I've created the same program, which might be helpful to others. It requires Python and the Python winsdk (https://pypi.org/project/winsdk/) to be installed. The usage is the same and it works with Cyrillic.
1) Place 'WindowsNowPlaying.py' in the directory '\Rainmeter\Skins\Bigparty\SongInfo'.
2) In 'MeasureTitle', 'MeasureArtist', and 'MeasureThumb', change the Parameter as follows:
Code: Select all
Parameter=python WindowsNowPlaying.py title
Parameter=python WindowsNowPlaying.py artist
Parameter=python WindowsNowPlaying.py thumb
