  • (2019-04-14, v:0.4.5) Only Hitmarkers: adding qobuz support
    Do you have any intent on adding support for qobuz. There is a program for it and a web player. Neither seem to work.
  • (2019-03-31, v:0.4.2) Ender Shinigami: Twitch Streaming/Streamlabs OBS
    I used to have a different chrome extension for my Now Playing on my Twitch Streams, but the app has since been removed from the chrome store. Do you already have ways of using the app with twitch, specifically Streamlabs OBS? If not do you have any plans in the future to do so? Do you absolutely have to have rainmeter to use this or is there a source file that the extension drops assets to bc if that's the case I might be able to use it as is without rainmeter.

  • (2018-10-12, v:0.4.2) Yann RADREAUX: Issue with Deezer website
    Hi there :) It seems that song/artist info from Deezer is not working as intended, but i confirm that on Spotify and Winamp it's ok... Maybe a little trick to unlock it ? Anyway, thanks a lot for this little gem of extension ;)
  • (2018-10-07, v:0.4.2) Chrom the Chrommander: Youtube Music integration
    Hi there! Your plugin works perfectly with the regular version of Youtube, but doesn't seem to fetch any data from Youtube Music. Is this a bug or a feature that has not been added yet? If the latter is true, do you think you will add the feature or not? In any case, thanks for the plugin!
  • (2018-05-12, v:0.4.2) Logan Tomasak: Oudated
    The extension keeps disabling itself because it says its an outdated extension. I dont know if you need to update it for a newer version of rainmeter or if its just a glitch but in order for it to work for monstercat visualizer it must be working so if you can please fix that.
