Very nice, but it doesn't work with iTunes.

Comment #4 Sunday, May 01, 2005 1:01 PM
took you long enough to release it
Comment #5 Sunday, May 01, 2005 5:01 PM
Cool. Doesn't work with WMP or foobar2000 FYI.

Thanks everyone! Looks like its a WinAmp only thing for now.

Oh, and for you IRC users...there's an undocumented feature that puts a "WickedP is listening to..." string in the clipboard everytime the song changes so you can annoy your fellow IRC channel mates.

Hi Wicked, grat job!
Sorry but it doesn't work with Itunes. Please, take a look to the konfabulator widget
named "Itunes Companion" for further ideas (artwork gathered from the itunes
library, saving of the artwork to Itunes folders etc.).

For some reason the font in the screen shot isn't the one it is using.

Oh, and it will work with foobar2000 if you get the Winamp API emulator plugin. Using it with foobar right now.

Edit: Perhaps what is even more interesting is the fact that it actually works better with foobar than Winamp, at least for me. That is to say, albums that Winamp didn't get the art for, or got the wrong art for, are getting the correct album art when played in foobar2000. Cool.

hey this rocks! It would be great if you made it easy to change the default image (I listen to some obscure music and it tends to show up alot, so i would like to change it to something that goes better with my whole desktop.)

Anyway, good job.

There are objects out there that show iTunes cover art - I know I made them so you can use these.

love this!

however, seems to only work with the Rush station - I listen to this one too ...
will not work with any of my other stations??? Also, is there a way I can change
the font?

thanks in advance!

was able to get it to work, but it's pretty selective
Comment #13 Friday, May 13, 2005 1:16 PM
Yeah...the problem is most of the stations put the Artist and Song Title in the string...so with Streaming content most of the stations will only generate CD Single art. With local content it should alway get the Albun and Artist art...unless you changed the "Advanced Title" format in WinAmp.

As for changing the font...you would need to import the Widget and right click the text and change the Font settings on the States tab.
