Yet another very useful plugin!
No more "snip" for me, it's Tuna now.
Thank You!
(and thanks to Heatsick's rating, I was able to make the placeholder image into a transparent/empty one)
it's really good but for some reason it won't show the cover art when playing from SoundCloud. otherwise it's a 10/10
very great and simple to use, i am using the Browser Widget version which is working just fine. but i wish there was a version without the progress bar just the album art with song and artist below song name. i tried making it in HTML but i am not that good at it
Configuration options are nice, but the plugin frequently stops displaying Spotify info despite showing that the plugin is connected and running. Album art is also inconsistently sized when using Spotify. I originally thought these issues were due to a conflicting connection caused by using Elgato Streamdeck Spotify controls, but avoiding the use of these controls has not resolved the issue.
Updated to 1.4.1. I believe 1.4.0 was crashing OBS 25. Didn't seem to have any issues with 1.4.1 though.
Would be nice to have the progress bar and the cover disappear when spotify is paused. Cover used to work, but not any more for some reason.

I know about the cover issue, but I haven't gotten around to fix it
I got it installed and working with Spotify. I can get album art, progress bar, song title and artist.
Found it better than other plugins out there. Very easy to use but was a little bit difficult to install. But the developer is very patient and helpful. So don't worry!
great plugin, everything is implemented very cool and convenient
Just thanks
Thanks for the update and fix on the placeholder image :D
and oh! I don't know if that was there before, but just saw the "hide when paused" option for the progress bar. Thanks!

If you'd like a report on the dock, the buttons don't seem to interact with Spotify at all. forward, back, or play/pause. The song name does update and the image for "play/pause" does change if I play/pause it with my keyboard or the program itself. (Just reporting for others who might want use it)

Yeah I noticed the issue with spotify, I think I know what's causing it'll just take a bit for me to fix it.
Love this plugin, I really do. But I really hate that media control dock that was added recently. Mostly because I can't seem to find a way to not make it show again on startup every time.
I always have to go and manually turn it off from the docks menu every single time I start OBS.
I have no use for this dock at all, so it is really, really annoying.
I'm having some issues with using VLC I did read this in the comments "Do you have any VLC sources added? It only works with VLC sources not with the actual VLC player" but I have no idea how or where I would put these sources, and whether or not a simply VLC playlist file suffices? great little addon though

You have to add a VLC Video source, which can load playlists or individual files.
I found it a little hard to setup, but I'm pretty sure that's just me as I have inexperience with using OBS plugins. I am using it for a 24/7 music stream, and it is a great plugin to use. I would recommend this if you are trying to use this for a 24/7 stream, or for any stream that you are trying to show song info.
I'll be the hipster but any chance you can get this to speak with Winamp?

Yeah, I'm that monster.

But I am getting constant crashes with OBS 25.0.8 in inputting anything with last.fm, having the program read a program (trying for Winamp, hence the asking for it above), and VLC player.

the latest release has some issues, but the previous one should work fine
Great plugin! But I have a problem using VLC.
The title and artist are displayed, but the cover art is not.
I also have VLC in the source.
Please help!

Windows 10 pro
OBS ver. 27.2.3 64bit
VLC ver. 3.0.16

Do the files have covers embedded? You can check with https://www.mp3tag.de/en/index.html if the file doesn't have a cover it won't work.
I have it downloaded, but it won't let me add any text files or any thing to the info tab; when i hit ok it exits and nothing happens ;;
Best plugin for "now playing"
Widely configurable and easy to use.
