Now playing music for spotify / itunes / winamp on stream.

You can use Foobar2000, honestly its just as good but just no Radio as far as I know. Not to mention you can import your local songs or music if you have it. If you want to do that with Spotify I'm pretty sure you need premium, and also there are no ads on Foobar either which is another thing you need to pay to get rid of with Spotify. I wouldn't even look at it as a downgrade to be honest as you can run royalty free music through Foobar and if you should ever need to monetize it for YouTube its good to go from the get go. Hope that helped.

Snip works with Spotify just fine and has for an incredibly long time. There was a very brief moment where Spotify no longer included the track information in the window title and that caused Snip to break. They added that information back in to Spotify shortly after and Snip has worked fine ever since. There is no reason to ever use an old version of Snip, especially when all of the newer versions support current releases of Spotify just fine. I use Snip daily and am on Spotify 1.0.14.124.g4dfabc51 (as of writing this post) and everything just works.

Bottom line: stop using a release from over a year ago and update to the latest version of Snip and Spotify.

I can't seem to get the program to "run", since you said that it technically doesn't need to run.

That's when I right click it. Am I missing something?

It runs in your system tray, if you click the little up arrow in the bottom right corner of your task bar you will see the snip logo as long as you have opened the program.

When I hover the mouse over the Snip icon on the system tray it shows the song playing on Spotify, but it doesn't generate a .txt file in the Snip folder for the track. Any ideas?

I had a problem where it wouldn't generate either and I found that restarting your system and then opening Snip while you have OBS up and searching for the file worked. If not just try closing the application and opening it at different stages of the process. Snip can be a bit finicky so try opening it before, during, or after OBS is open and looking for the .txt file from Snip. Hopefully that helps!

The only missing feature that makes this program just ALMOST perfect for me is the fact that it doesn't update the information on offline tracks, only the tracks that are officially on spotify. Unfortunately half of my playlist is offline.

And by offline I mean mp3 files on my computer.

I'm using Winamp and the tracks always say, "1. zircon - Augment" or something like that. How do I get rid of the number?

This thing does not work on Spotify 1.0.20.94. First thought it may have been the 4.x.x version of snip so updated to this latest one. Still nada. Crashes with JSON error. Still works with VLC though. Anyone know of any alternatives to this for spotify at actually do work ???

As far as my testing goes it updates Snip.txt still. It may not be able to find any album artwork or anything but it will still save the information to the text file.
