"Untamed Now Playing" is a Chrome extension which parses the song title and artist from popular online radio/music sites, and writes it to a file on your hard drive. Programs such as OBS can then read the file and display it on an overlay, allowing viewers to easily see what song is currently being played. At the moment, this extension is Windows only.

Download the already packed extension here. Open Chrome, click on the Spanner/Wrench icon -> Tools -> Extensions. Drag and drop the packed extension you downloaded in Step #1. Click 'continue' on the bottom left of the Chrome window. Install the unpacked extension (Under development, not recommended) Download the extension from Github here Extract the files to a safe place. Open Chrome, click on the Spanner/Wrench icon -> Tools -> Extensions. Tick "Developer mode" on the top right of the page. Click "Load unpacked extension" and navigate to where you extracted the files in Step #2. Note, the unpacked extension is from the development repository and thus may contain untested code and have bugs, so it's recommended you use the packed extension, which is always tested before release - unless you don't mind being a guinea pig :). Configuration Once you have installed the extension, you can find the options page by either right clicking the music note icon next to the address bar and selecting Options, or by finding "Untamed Now Playing" on the Extensions page and clicking Options. The main option to configure is the "Save Directory". This is where the file containing the now playing data will be saved. The directory will also be used for caching if you enable the "Check stream is live" option. More information explaining each option can be found by clicking the info button on the right of each option. Please Note: If you use the "Scroll" option on OBS, you'll need to add a space (or a few) to the end of the "now playing format" option to prevent the first and last words merging. Tutorial Many thanks to benfuzed for this video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ps6vcXFsdpI And for a detailed look at advanced settings, check out this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu8zC4Mzqx0 Limitations At the moment, now playing data is only saved when the song intially plays and is only updated when the next song starts playing. Thus if you stop playing music, the output file will still contain the last song played. Chrome limits what directories can be saved to, if you run into problems, try saving to a subdirectory of your profile (C:\Users\USERNAME* or C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME*). Contact If you have any problems/suggestions/feedback etc, please either reply here or create an issue on Github. Once installed you can also find my email/skype on the 'contact' area of the options page.
