Now Playing overlay for OBS/XSplit with Foobar2000


I had an idea of how to do a nice looking music overlay for use with FB2K. So I made one. Works with both OBS and XSplit.

It will fade in on track change or on pause/play. You can also set it to stay on screen forever. You can see how it looks like in this quick video I uploaded to youtube.

You will need the Now Playing Simple plugin for Foobar2000 by Skipy Rich. It shouldn’t be too hard to modify if you know some HTML and CSS.

GitHub Repo Here if you’re into that kind of thing.


How do you get the album art to show ???

mine not showing up


Is it possible to make the player bigger? If so can you make a short tutorial on how to do so?

@Ray Currently not really without digging into the css. I might try reimplement it in Flash eventually. That would allow you to resize without seeing massive pixels and such. But I didn't go that route mainly because I wanted to experiment a bit with HTML and a lot of people have a "Flash must die" mentality. Which isn't to say it couldn't be done in HTML but I like being able to put these out quickly.
