More about this extension

This extension is actually player-agnostic, as long as the media player can be scripted to write to a text file and copy album art to a file in the extension’s directory.

There are two parts to this as written – a Chrome extension and a MediaMonkey script.  The MM script (available here)  is Windows-only, but ultimately any media player (or, really, any program) that can write a text file on state change (and, optionally, copy cover art to a specific file) should work, regardless of platform.  To that end, I have successfully tested it in Ubuntu 9.04 using gmusicbrowser to populate the text file.

Change Log:

MIgrated from toolstrip to browser action.

    The result? “This webpage is not found” error message”!

    The cover needs to be sent to the extension directory, renamed “cover.jpg,” and be referred to by a file called “cover.html.” The MediaMonkey script does that automatically when an “onplay” event is triggered, but I’m not familiar with or what APIs they expose.
