you continue to develop CAD? I want to open a file (.vbs) in the same way that the program reads the back cover

I noticed Rainmeter isn't in the list of compatible apps, so it can't be used if your app is running?:(

well, since CD Art Display (or CAD, as we often call it for short) is a frontend application for players like winamp, WMP, foobar etc. it makes no real sense to also list rainmeter, because for obvious reasons rainmeter isn't capable of playing anything.

however, you can of course run both CAD and rainmeter at the same time and they most likely won't interfere with eachother. i say most likely, because for rainmeter there are some modules/skins/configs that also retrieve data from compatible players to display album art or even let you control said players (play/pause, previous- next track etc.) and i have no idea how CAD and rainmeter negotiate priorities then. i'd say it's worth a try but with caution.

hope that helped. ;)

Yeah, that's the reason I asked about it - so thanks for the info! :D

it's nice to be super again! On another subject, I always thought that CAD should be listed under audio utilities and not Media players as it currently is. O_o

yes, you're right and we (me and mrrste) had quite a discussion about this when he managed to get us an own CAD category here on dA back then. his arguement was -and i have to admit that i definitely see a point there- that a sub-category in media players is a far more prominent location, so that CAD would profit from much more attention, than when placed in audio utilities. by definition CAD of course isn't a media player, but then again can be used in conjunction with quite a lot of them, so that if people search for let's say a winamp or a foobar skin, then there's a good chance that they also might stumble over the CAD sub-cat by coincidence. if we were in auduo utils, then i guess people would have to search for CAD skins much more specificly, you know.

well, what can i say? it isn't the most logic placement, but i sure got used to it and the points made do speak for the current one imo. ;)
and it's not too far off either, don't you think?

Yes, taking into account everything, it sounds right. Meanwhile the group still receives album art submissions :D (Big Grin) . Thanks for clearing that up for me Otis.
