A now playing tool intended to be used with OBS.
So bascially its just something that I made to replace SMG. If anyone actually sees this and wants to request a player, just make an issue on the github page.
There is a new, rewritten version available here: https://github.com/pendo324/universal-np. I intend to add features to it much more regularly. It has most of the same features, and I really need people to test it pls.
Planned players to support:
This application is completely portable. All that is required is that the two
.exe's are in the same directory. Everything else is automagically setup when you run the application. If you move it and want to keep your settings, also move settings.json.
To use the WebApps, you'll need install the companion extension from the webstore. Here's a link to it: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/now-playing-companion/aocghdlnkcebaipehcejjpeiijpdjldo.
To use the WebApps you need to do the following:
Be sure that the desktop application is running before activating the Chrome extension.
NativeMessagingInterface.exeis not in the same directory as
Essential Now Playing.exe.
Please ensure that they are in the same directory before creating an issue.
To compile using Visual Studio on Windows you are going to need to get a few References
These can be found using Nuget:
You will also need access to iTunes.exe to import iTunesLib. Not sure how this works with Mono, but I'd like to hear it.
