Now Playing Update - 3.2.6


  • New: Drag and drop a file onto the gadget and WMP or iTunes will play it
  • New: Ability to enlarge gadget when undocked
  • New: Fifth layout where text is always visible in the sidebar
  • New: Different button styles for shuffle, playlist, covers etc
  • Change: Editing track data now occurs on DOUBLE click, not single click
  • Fix: Non-jpeg album art now working for iTunes
  • Fix: Album art was lost when docking or undocking in normal mode
  • Fix: Ignoring updates is more reliable
  • Tooltips updated
  • Removed some of the not-so-great skins

Note: If you're looking for the "change player" or update links on the settings page, they're on the "Misc" tab now to save space.

Got any suggestions? Drop me an email

I love your gadget, I have been using it for a while. Now that you mentioned something about removing the not so great skins, I remembered about one you removed a few versions back. The one that was a CD case. That was my favorite one! You should bring that one back, it was a very fitting skin to display album art. Now I use one of the vinyl skins.
Anyway, keep up the good work. And if possible, bring back that skin, please!

I'm afraid i can't do that, the author decided to revoke permission to use that skin so i had to respect that. It wouldn't be fair to carry on using it. I can't make anything similar as i simply can't use photoshop - i just code.

It sux that you can't use the cd case anymore because the author didn't approve. That was actually my fav skin as well. The cd case will be missed.

is it normal, that foobar cant be launched by clicking on the gadget?

Law James said...

No, it won't work if foobar is installed in a non-default location. foobar doesn't tell windows where it is so windows can't tell the gadget.
