Why is there such a huge border to the right so that i can't move it to the right of my monitor? :(

It's working nice but by looking into the INI file I noticed that "mTrack" is the only command to show the title and artist, am I right? Because I tried to use mTitle/mArtist and it won't give a return... Anyways it's a nice design and work you did! Thumbs up!

Yes you're right, that's kinda the problem with Rainmeter skins for Spotify. Spotify doesn't support any plug-ins so the only way to retrieve the title / artist is to retrieve the actual 'window title' of the running Spotify application. Thank you for your appreciation.

Thanks for making this, it's great!

Some suggestion (feel free to disregard these entirely ;) ):
1. Replace the control buttons with spotify-identical ones.
2. Release additional image sets with varying size, they're really small on higher resolutions.
3. When Spotify is not running, you could replace [MeterTitle] with a Spotify icon. This could also be clickable to launch Spotify. Something like this (how I did it):

    [MeterTitle]
    Meter=Image
    ImageName=Spotify.png
    X=0
    Y=0
    AntiAlias=1
    LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute ["%appdata%\Spotify\SpotifyLauncher.exe"]

Keep up the good work! :)

Nice, those are great ideas! I'm currently not into Rainmeter programming, since I'm working very hard on my website. But once I'll get to it again, I'll give it a try!

Happy New Year!  Fantastic skin!  I managed to get it right aligned after reading through the comments (i couldn't program a potato) and was wondering if there is a way to have the title above the artist or vise-versa as you do in your iTunes Player 2???  Thanks in advance for any response!

Happy new year to you too! I'm glad you like it. Yeah, sure, just swap the y-coordinates of the artist with the y-coordinates of the title. It's really easy to edit, just open the .ini file with Notepad. Goodluck!

Very good, just that I can't get it to show numbers except 0's.
Any ideas?

Yes, the title gets substituted by the code, in a way that it won't show any numbers anymore. I believe I've removed this 'function' in the latest skin, which has Spotify support as well: siesie.deviantart.com/art/All-…

Hope that works out for you. Merry christmas.
