Sticky Cover for Rainmeter - Spotify Album Art by TimoBRL Sticky Cover for Rainmeter - Spotify Album Art by TimoBRL
My second Rainmeter skin.
I was kinda disappointed by the lack of Rainmeter skins with full Spotify support. After looking at the code of Small Spotify With AlbumArt by ~JLundberg , I realized more could be done with some modifications.
Therefore, I decided to port the beautiful Sticky Cover for CAD by ~derrington12.

The skin uses the NowPlaying plugin to retrieve the artist and title of the current track, and the WebParser plugin to retrieve the album name and cover art.
I also included a simple start/stop button by clicking on the cover art.

Credits for the original Lua script go to ~Kaelri who first published it on the rainmeter forums.
Credits for the "no_cover image" go to ~stainless2.
The wallpaper is Waves HD Wallpaper.

It's a great idea, but I think if the info for album and album cover were obtained from spotify's api instead of last.fm, it would give more accurate data. Also, having issues with characters showing up in the variables, like or .

For some reason it wont let me move it to the left of my screen, it stops around 1/3 the way in from the left....
anyway i can fix this?

attached a pic so you can see where it stops. Also the border on the right of it is a little large also so I cannot put it quite as right as I want to either.

I'm getting the same issue where album name & art isn't coming up.  I tried reloading rainmeter a few times and restarting the PC.
