It only shows when you are using Zune and ZuneNowPlaying is running. If you can't get this to work, try my new skin: [link] it includes Zune.

mhm i can't get it to work right. The buttons don't work. I copied everything except the ZuneNowPlaying folder and the Nircmd Folder into the Skin folder. Added ZuneNowPlaying.exe shortcut into the startup folder but i cannot find the C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Addons folder... i only have: \Defaults \Languages and \Plugins.

This is great. Works just fine.
Only problem is that it doesn't show album art, but other then that it's great.

Add more intelligence to the skin like make the play/pause button as one and display the right icon at the right time, this is a valuable addition to the rainmeter skin set. Well done.

Yess I totally agree. But that would require a response from the player, which must contain the information whether if the player is playing or is paused. Not every media player supports this. But maybe the new Rainmeter version supports this, or something similar. I'll have a look at it.

The ReadMe.txt could use an update, however this config works very well! :)

Have you got zunenowplaying.exe running in the background? Are you sure that the program isn't being blocked by your anti-virus program?

"the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more details"

I get this error message every time I try to run zunenowplaying. Any advice?

Run ZunePlaying.exe before using the skin, than copy the skin files to the rainmeter skin's folder, like usual, and see the magic happen :) haha , if you want the skin to work at every startup immediately, just add 'ZunePlaying.exe' to the startup folder. :)

It works perfect, but how can I change the size of the player? Buttons and text.
Also It donīt shows the album art...

:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool :) Just change the 'size=...' in 'Variables.inc'. You can change the size of the buttons by changing the 'w=...' and the 'h=...' in the .ini file, below [PrevZune] etcetera. Album art is not possible yet, unfortunately.

Any suggestions as to which font i should use? Most of the time the song names get cut off or replaced with random symbols.

Install this font and use "Japanese" as font ? That might work: [link]

This looks excellent, but it won't work for me. The buttons (Back/forward/play/pause) won't do anything. Everything else works, it shows the songname, artist, album, but I would rather like the buttons to work as well.

You'll have to place the NirCmd add on in the Addons folder :) Read the readme.

Tested out other players, I seem to be having the same issues with the rest of them as well. I dont think this is specific to your skin. I'm going to have to do some more digging.
