  • Initial Redux Release


Just some general fixes with downloading cover art from sites that only support certain sites. Also added the version check support that I thought I had added before but I guess I did not


This version is a complete rewrite of the extension since the last version. This rewrite should make it easier to keep the extension up to date and also merged both browser extensions to a single codebase.

New features include: Removed unneeded APIs Fixed issue with icons in example skin. More sites supported. A generic site supporter that when enabled will try to support sites without explicit support such a streamable or reddit. (Note: wont capture elements inside a iframe yet) Version checking, extension will now notify you when the plugin is out of date. Settings for the companion extension, they are not all implemented yet since the projects they rely on are unreleased.

To update simply install the rmskin down below.


Now the extensions support quite a few more sites as well as setting the position and volume of the meter.

The Spotify API is also now being used to get the album and album art of the current song. In the future this API as well as several others such as Twitch and Youtube will be added to make Rainmeter skin makers lives easier.

Since this is now integrated into the official Monstercat Visualizer and we are halfway between releases I am only including the rmskin of the example skin.


First release of the plugin. You will need to install either the chrome or firefox companion for this to work.

Given that this is an early release I expect regional variants or minor issues with the various supported websites. If any information looks wrong or isn't working please report it. (Check that Rainmeter has a firewall exception though if nothing is working 😛 )

The current list of supported sites is: Youtube Twitch Soundcloud Google Play Music Amazon Music

The standard bangs and info are supported and follow a NowPlaying style, for now just look at the example until I get documentation written which will come once SetPosition and SetVolume are supported.
