Now Playing Update - 3.6

Download

Better plug-in system all round. Foobar, QMP, and Winamp plug-ins install better. They're also not included with the gadget but are downloaded from the server automatically. This means the gadget size will be smaller so WMP users (which account for over half of the gadgets users) won't have unnecessary plugin's.

  • Zoom levels in settings un-disabled
  • My list of gadgets in settings no longer appear twice
  • Lyrics button added to iPhone skin
  • Smaller file size

Note: Application paths are important, if you installed your player in one location and decided to move it somewhere else without using an installer, the gadget probably won't work.

P.S. Please donate if you like the gadget :)

Got any issues or suggestion? Drop me an email

brilliant gadget works very well just one thing i would like changed is about the lyrics, if you leave them up and the song changes the lyrics dont change... just wondered if it is a quick fix but if it isnt dont worry about it.

Hey Law,
very nice gadget you made there, thanks alot, i'm using it since a week and it runs smoothly, app featuers are great.

But for the update to 3.6, i'm getting a virus report:
--> js\main.js
HTML/ADODB.Exploit.Gen

Hope you can fix it ;)

Well there is no virus, so nothing for me to fix really

Hi

This is one of the best gadgets I have ever used and would like to say keep up the good work.

Great gadget! Now I use it without having to launch WMP.

One request; Would it be possible to interface this gadget with realplayer? Lots of people use it.

Thanks and keep up the good work

Hey Law,

I also get this js\main.js virus report everytime I boot my PC. I can ignore, but it's getting a little annoying since my virus scanner constantly recognize it as a virus.

Is there anyway to decrease the lag time between when a song switches and when "now playing" will refresh with the newer song? Currently it seems like it takes about 5 seconds -- is this by design or is it just a technical limitation of some sort? If it is by design, is there a way to make it user-definable?

Law James said...

It's by design. Feel free to edit the code manually but with so much relying on it I can't make it user-configurable. With a shorter refresh CPU usage increases dramatically.

This uses to work great.. now witht he past two updates all I get is a message that states, "error, check plug-in enabled, or read read me>' Please help!

Law James said...

Have you tried reading the readme? It tells you to do so everywhere

Hey There! , Awesome Gadget!

Since the latest itunes update i've noticed it is no longer displaying anything other than an itunes logo :/

Any ideas ? I've tried reistalling both the plugin and itunes and it still wont display anything itunes does.

Awesome gadget. I use it all the time!

It seems like this version makes me get winamp errors though. Also, whenever I close winamp it seems the gadget automatically opens it for me.

Also, is their a shortcut keyboard button for the lyrics?

I only see the lyrics option when I use the full mode.

Great gadget, used it for a while now, liking the new update, fixed up some problems i was having with album art, now all works sweet. Thx for devoting your time to this

Anyone experiencing Windows Media Player plugin errors since upgrading should open WMP, right click somewhere and select Tools, Plugins, Options and then under category select Background and check the uICE WMP Plugin box. Click OK and you should be good to go. Fantastic plugin!!! By far one of the most useful Vista Gadgets to date.

Great work with the gadget. be cool if you changed the itunes symbol to blue like itunes 7's logo. apart from that its one of my most used gadgets.

is there a way to download the foobar plug-in separately?

teguh said...

i.e. what plugin(s) are needed and how to install them manually?

How do I remove the WMP plug-in? The remove button is unavaliable even with the admin account. Is there a manual way to do this?
