iTunes Player 2 for Rainmeter by maxvanijsselmuiden iTunes Player 2 for Rainmeter by maxvanijsselmuiden
Updated version of my original iTunes Player skin (siesie.deviantart.com/#/d38jyp…

Skin for rainmeter, should work on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. 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 weither to display art or not.

Update:
CPU usage of 50% was caused by "update=1". Now Fixed.

Update 2:
Changed the 'bg.png', now the skin looks a little more stylish when there is no album art available. Check the preview:)

Update 3: Right align version:
siesie.deviantart.com/art/iTun…

Update 4:
Also check out my latest all-in-one skin. It supports several music programs, including iTunes:

Enjoy!










Having problems?

- Make sure you have the latest version of Rainmeter installed:
builds.rainmeter.net/ (last downward)

- Windows Vista / 7 / 8: Make sure you are running both programs (the music player and Rainmeter) as an Administrator.

It could be that Apple has made some small changes in iTunes which causes this skin to not work properly anymore. I suggest trying my latest skin, which is using the NowPlaying.dll plugin of Rainmeter. Link: maxvanijsselmuiden.deviantart.…

It works beautifully. If you want it to stay even if Itunes is off, right click, go to "edit skin," and get rid of the bit of code that says "[mPlaying]" all the way to "[mPositionPercent]" (leaving in the "[mPositionPercent]," of course.

Because that's how I programmed it. Take a look at the code, it can be easily edited.

Awesome skin - having an issue though where it doesn't seem to be able to go past 940 left-to-right coordinate, it's acting like there is an invisible boundary there even though my other skins can snap to the right side of the screen. Tried changing the coordinates manually in the settings window rather than dragging but to no effect. Any advice?

Hmm, you should try to edit the width of the skin, not the co÷rdinates. Goodluck!

Go into the variables file and edit the width to a smaller number. I used 100 and it works.

Yep, you'll have to adjust the widths, font sizes, x and y-axes...

This is the most elegant looking player. BUT, it looks ugly when iTunes isn't on. The white box replacing album art takes away the awesomeness from my desktop. Anyway to hide the player when not in use?

:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I totally agree with you on that. There's a way to hide the player when not in use, but it takes a lot of code. I'll be working on that!

Also, did you remove uppercase from the all in one player? Was a bit diappointed. It looks the neatest.

Anyway, if you edit mPrev to "BackTrack" from "PreviousTracck" it works like iTunes should :)

I putted the download in my skins folder, and enabled it. But nothing is showing up. The artwork.jpg is being updated however. I'm currently using itunes 10.6. Also, the rainmeter log says this:
Image: Unable to open: C:\Users\Username\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\iTunes Player 2\.png
!HideMeter:[VolumeUp] not found in "iTunes Player 2"
!HideMeter:[VolumeDown] not found in "iTunes Player 2"
!HideMeter:[Artist] not found in "iTunes Player 2"
!HideMeter:[Track] not found in "iTunes Player 2"

Sorry, i'm a bit of a noob with rainmeter :P It's probably just a stupid fault. I've already tried restarting my computer.

It should work just fine, out of these data I can't say what the problem is. I'm currently using iTunes 10.6 and everything is working. Maybe you could re-download the skin and re-do all the steps in the readme file? Otherwise: try out my new skin: [link] it uses a new plug-in so that should work :) Good luck!

Have windows 7 and the latest version of iTunes.

No album art appears at all for me, and the mouse over does not work either.

Help please.

also, I edited my skin so that the "PreviousTrack" option was "Backtrack" allowing the user to go to the beginning of the song they are currently listening to before going backwards through the playlist.

That's strange. I've got the 10.5.3.3 with the latest Rainmeter beta version running, on my PC. It's working just fine. Maybe you should try reinstalling the beta, reinstalling the skin and perhaps reinstalling iTunes.

Yes it might not work with the latest iTunes version. You may have to download the latest version of Rainmeter to make it work.
