Description:

This is essentially a stripped down version of the "Now Playing" widget for KDE written by Alex Merry displaying only the cover art.

NOTE: This plasmoid will be completely invisible if you have no music either playing or paused! Amarok as of version 2.8 has a hardcoded limitation of cover art with dimensions over 1000 pixels in either width or height. (For the brave it is "size < 1000" within SqlMeta.cpp and CoverCache.cpp, I just bumped mine to 2000)

really good! this is what i mean with Plasmoid! Become invisible when it is useless!!! Only one thing to be perfect, you should add a playbar and some info about the current song!

First of all, thank you very much for this useful plasmoid!
Is it possible to get a better resolution of the cover art when using spotify? At this moment, the plasmoid is showing a low resolution picture of the album cover. However, in spotify the resolution of the picture is much better, so I guess that it is possible to get a better image for the cover art.

Thanks in advance.

I had been waiting for this (not "something like this" but "exactly this") for a long time. The idea to make it transparent when nothing is playing was great.
Thanks and congratulations.

Many thanks, Sean. Just what I needed (only thing I'm missing is widget shadow).
