iTunes Player 2 Right Align by maxvanijsselmuiden iTunes Player 2 Right Align by maxvanijsselmuiden
With this iTunes skin for rainmeter you can control iTunes from your desktop.

Right align version of the original iTunes 2 skin.

Skin for rainmeter, should work on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

On mouse-over, current track time and volume control will be displayed. Also, the album art is larger than the original skin. You can still choose either to display art or not.

Hey,

Everything works fine but from time to time the artist will disappear until I refresh rainmeter. Any idea why?

Thank you for this plugin!

Unfortunately, I can't help you with this. In this case, I don't know what the problem is. A new player skin is coming soon!

It doesn't work for me, I have it all in the right folder etc. but when I load any of them (including the left align version), it does not show up on my desktop

I believe this skin will only show up when iTunes is running.

For those that don't know how to enable skins without an installation file:

1. Put the "iTunes Player 2" folder in your "Documents/Rainmeter/Skins" folder.
2. Refresh Rainmeter by right-clicking a Rainmeter object and in the pull-down menu you go to "Rainmeter -> Refresh All"
3. Rightclick a Rainmeter object again and go to Rainmeter -> Skins -> iTunes Player 2 -> select one of the skins here.

Hope this helps :)

Enjoy!

Have you tried refreshing Rainmeter? The skin should then pop-up in the menu.

can't get this to work :( i've copied it into the right folder but i can't get it to actually interact with iTunes. i can play music through iTunes but it won't let me change anything using the plugin. the plugin disappears correctly when i close iTunes and opens when iTunes does but other than that there seems to be no communication. i'm fairly new to rainmeter so i could be missing something obvious. is there any particular version i should be using?

Hmm, you could try updating iTunes, updating Rainmeter and reinstalling the skin... I have no idea whatsoever..

I like this. I like this a lot. OH! Have you considered making a vertical version? One that would have the album art the right way, but then all the text aligned on its side? Just a thought.

Thanks :) Well, ehh, try adding 120 to the x-axes, and hmm, you'll have to try and see for the y-axes :) good luck!

this is giving me a headache, I cant seem to get it right. For every pixel I increase on the album art, do I just increment that against the X and Y and I take it the distance between the album art and and background is the the padding, e.g. album art 200x200 background 205x505, makes border padding of 5 pixels? aghh :/
Reply
:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I believe the padding of the background and the album is 10 pixels, but i'm not so sure. Got it right yet? Otherwise i can send you an .ini file with the correct settings. Sorry for the late response.

Woops, well, with media player, you should download this skin [link] but there won't be any album art. This is not possible with WMP. However, I could make a right align version of the WMP player?

i'm sure you are busy, but would it be possible for you to make the album art image h=170 and w=170. i could probably do this but it would take me FOREVER im very new to rainmeter. so if you had time or could help out i would REALLY appreciate it. (preferably for the bottom option of the 3)
