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
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 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.
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)
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.
This is great! It works really well, and is very customizable. One critique that would be nice is the ability for a "main" artist wildcard, since some songs can have a ton of artists, like a movie soundtrack with multiple singers on a track.
This is excellent, great work.
I've been using Twobbler until now to grab song info and album covers (through last.fm) while playing from Spotify, and this is much less cumbersome and also updates several times faster. The only thing I'd like to see added is the option to use a custom cover placeholder (or none at all) when nothing is playing.
Edit: Found the cover placeholder image in the plugin files. A path setting in the GUI would be nice though!
Really great work!
I put myself in window title mode and no problem with Foobar2000, I just replaced the name of the software "[foobar2000]" with nothing and it is no longer displayed.
It can really be used with any music player or browser, it is complete and excellent for everyone.
Sure, I'll share it in a tutorial in French for my YouTube community.
