Small Spotify With AlbumArt by JLundberg Small Spotify With AlbumArt by JLundberg
A small spotify skin for rainmeter with cover art, !!UPDATED!! Albumart shows always now if it is on the website that i use to get it...
Though you have to have Spotify set to "scrobble to last.fm" and you also need to have a last.fm API account and enter your assigned API key to the URL in the .ini file.

To anyone having issues getting the cover art to show up, go to the control panel for your last.fm API account and copy the full url from the .inf file including your custom API code and enter it into the scrobbler URL box under your last.fm settings. If you're having issues getting it to show up consistently that would be because last.fm doesn't actually have a very full featured cover art database. They are missing cover art for a lot of albums.  Still, this seems to be the only way to get cover art to display through Rainmeter. I think there may also be a way to upload cover art to last.fm if the album is missing it, not positive though.

Cant get the cover art working either. Joined to last.fm , installed scrobbler and enabled it in spotify. Got my API key and edited it to "method=track.getinfo&api_key=XXXXXX&artist=#ARTIST#&track=#TRACK#". It still only shows the spotify logo on it. Cant figure out whats wrong.

Hello... so I set Spotify to scrobble to last.fm and I signed up for a last.fm account and copied that key into the .ini file, but I am still not getting any artwork. 
I substituted the key in below as you can see below
[MeasureGetArt]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=WebParser.dll
ForceReload=0
Url=ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?
method=track.getinfo&api_key=0acd29d16ef9069ca6cb9760054b19a5&artist=#ARTI
ST#&track=#TRACK#

What am I missing here?

You should mention that in order to get the album art to show, you have to have Spotify set to "scrobble to last.fm" and you also need to have a last.fm API account and enter your assigned API key to the URL in the .ini file.

I don't know if you are aware but with an Update=100 and an UpdateRate=1 you are updating 10 times every second. This also means your image is being downloaded 10 times/sec which is likely going to cause the website to block connections from WebParser as the users of your skin are basically DOSing their server. You should update this skin ASAP to a more reasonable update.
Update=1000
Your measures should probably bump the UpdateRate a little as well 5 should be quick enough. I would remove UpdateRate from [MeasureGetArt] completely as you don't need to keep downloading while the song is playing, your Lua is refreshing the skin when the track changes anyways.

Just to let you know we are about to release a new Rainmeter beta that allows DynamicVariables in plugins, so you should be able to do this without the Lua.
