Hey, Great skin. Love the scroll through feature on the progress. 
I have one problem though, when closing wpm the skin acts up and starts flickering. Would you happen to know why and if this happens to anyone else using other media players?

Thank you. I think the problem is in plugin and how it works with soundcard drivers. I have similar issues when sound starts humming when I connect bluetooth speakers. It resolves when I refresh skin. I am using Aimp as media player.

heya, thanks for the awesome widget. I'm having issues with it displaying the track process and the track name. I managed to get itunes work with it but not VLC media player even after changing it in settings. I have the latest rainmeter installed, any idea on what's causing it? :)

Make sure you have installed libcad plugin as noted in Rainmeter Docs.

Thanks for the reply! I managed to find it in the end and install it but it only works for VLC 2.0.x and doesn't support newer versions of VLC. I ended up downloading a 2.0.0 vlc but it still doesn't seem to work. Ohwell I'll manage to live without it. 
Thanks again for the awesome widget and help! :)

I have Rainmeter 3.2 with AudioLevel and installed your skin, but while the track name, track progress and controls work (player set to foobar2000), the graphic bars don't show at all when a track is playing. It's probably something really simple I'm missing.

rabra Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014
Graphic bars should show for any sound you play on PC regardless of media player. Be sure to install latest version of Rainmeter since it includes AudioLevel plugin.

Hey, any idea how to make the bars more responsive without cranking up the volume? Cause I need the volume really loud for the bars to even begin to register above the line.
Reply
:iconrabra:
rabra Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014
You can try setting volume separately on your media player and windows volume control.
You can edit file and increase value of RMSGain for [MeasureAudioOutput1,2,3,4].

Thanks! The RMSGain thing worked very well!

Except for one thing, the two middle bars are still moving very minimally, every other bar is responding perfectly,

Weird, any ideas?

You can increase value of PeakGain for [MeasureAudioOutput1].

Sorry for that.

AudioLevel plugins have been removed. You can try to download it again. Please make sure you download latest version of AudioLevel plugin or else EQ effect will not function.

I'm not having any luck with the controls and VLC media player, despite the correct media player being selected in the preferences. WMP works however. Any ideas? Love the skin, that's why I want it to work for me!

Hi. You probably need to install libcad plugin for it to work with VLC. More at NowPlaying plugin.

Hi. Sorry for that. Try downloading skin file again and/or reinstalling Rainmeter. I used Rainmeter 3.1 Final Release to create and package skin. Hope this helps.

I wanted just to show you what I did thanks to your work. I just modified the keys then doubled the whole so that it's encrusted well in my wallpaper.
On the other hand, I keep it that for me.
Thank you still for your work

why a media player widget and no simply a EQ meter for all the system ?
Reply
:iconrabra:
rabra Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
It actually works as general EQ meter for all the system. Media player controls is just an extra feature I wanted to add to nice EQ effect. I generally wanted to have media player controls at the same time as displaying nice EQ effect :)

EQ meter works for all sounds playing on system but hiding media player controls and info if your media player is closed.
