I'm getting a similar issue but with VLC. No matter what order i open them in i just get a message saying "VLC not open"

Would it be possible to edit how the song information is displayed? I currently have my text file set to scroll in OBS and it all seems to be a bit too close together. Looking to add a little bit of space just after the name of the song.

For some reason, I can't seem to get the current song playing as I get this message.

"NativeMessagingInterface has stopped working

A problem caused the problem to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Is there any other way to fix this problem?
So far, liking it, but my only issue is the fact I can't edit what it puts up on my stream. I use Winamp, and I don't like that it shows the number at the beginning of the song and the " - Winamp" at the end. I'd love an update on this, if it can be fixed changed or its coming in the near future. Please and thank you!

Very good plugin! I used before GetSpotify, but this works better than another one, and permits more functionalities, thanks

So im having an issue where when I try to use soundcloud with the app it says "youtube not open" I have everything setup right and i have the chrome extension actviated on soundcloud. When i activate the extension on soundcloud it displays the song for one second then just goes back to saying "youtube not open". I hope this is clear and if someone could possibly help me fix this?

-So i looked into the nowplaying.txt file and the only text in the file is "youtube not open

Would it be possible to add ZaraSoft's 'ZaraRadio' to the list of supported players? ZaraRadio already creates a 'CurrentSong.txt' file which is currently opted to be located at 'C:\CurrentSong.txt', so this might be easier than some others...

Thanks for considering the request!
