This is a new skin, based on my previous RainRadio, that uses the great NowPlaying plugin from poiru, as well as the AutoIt addon I wrote to control VLC without loading its GUI interface.
Requires Rainmeter 2.3 or better from .
This skin REQUIRES that you have VLC installed on your system, and that the libcad.dll VLC plugin be installed. Instructions on where to get all that you need and how to install and configure things is included in the skin folder in HowTo.txt. Please read it after running the .rmskin so you can get things set up before you use the skin. The latest libcad.dll can be obtained here:
The skin will play any of 8 radio stations, which you can change to any of the thousands available on ShoutCast, and will allow you to play, pause, stop, control the volume and exit without ever needing to actually see or deal with the VLC application. The skin will do all that for you.
REALLY important note: Do not "close" the skin without pressing the "Stop" button or using the "X" to exit. If you close the skin while a station is playing, it will just keep right on doing so. Forever... You will need to use Task Manager to kill the invisible VLC.exe instance, or load the skin again and press "Stop".
Licensing: the artist has specified that ports and mods are allowed.
Don't forget to read the instructions!
You will see why ;)
