This is a slimline music player that won't gobble up too many of your precious desktop pixels. It has three states:
1) A 32 pixel x 32 pixel icon that sits on the desktop until a track is played in the music player.
2) A display that shows the number of mp3 files in your media library along with ever changing random album art from the library.
3) The player proper which pops-up to display album art and information on whatever track is playing. There are some basic player controls and you can change the track's rating (courtesy of the NowPlaying plugin by poiru).
Because the skin uses the NowPlaying plugin it works with a variety of media players (currently Windows Media Player, AIMP, Foobar2000, iTunes, MediaMonkey, MusicBee, Media Player, Classic, WinAmp, Spotify, TTplayer, VLC and Zune). An up-to-date list of supported players can be found here [link]
and instructions for setting it to a particular player are in the Pls.Readme file.
You'll need to have Rainmeter Version 2.1 Beta or later for the player to work properly. Download the latest version from the Rainmeter site [link]
UPDATE: 25th July 2011 - Added a Black skin version (R.I.P. Amy).
