Artist's Note

A media player control skin that looks like the stereos of my youth with working analogue style VU meters and functioning rotary volume knob..

Rainmeter currently does not support VU meters, that doesn't stop me building a skin to sit on top of one!

You need 3 things, this skin, Windows VU Meter (included with the skin from ver 1.2) and the media player of your choice.

Install and run this skin, position the VU meter and drag this skin over the top, job done.

The skin is set to run using Winamp upon installation. This can be changed by right clicking the skin and changing one word in [Measureplayer].

Current supported media players are AIMP, foobar2000, iTunes, J. River Media Center, Last.fm Client, MediaMonkey, Media Player Classic, MusicBee, OpenPandora, Spotify, TTPlayer, Winamp, WMP, Zune - More information here

1.2.2 - Revised to reflect changes made to Process plugin in Rainmeter 2.2.1103
