Thanks gvajda, your script is a keeper. I'm using the RP stream in FB2K, while tracking the stream in the RP web player. The automatic notification at the beginning of the song adds a bit of comfort and less interruption in my work. And many times I was wondering about the time left for the current song, now I'm good.

Hi All,


I wrote to myself an applet that solves my old problem and I thought I will publish here as it might be useful for others. Sorry in advance for my bad English.

Background (problem): I missed the option to see the now playing song on RP as Windows Desktop Notification (or with another name, toast notification). If I listen to a new song that I like, I'd like to know what it is. If my headphone is not on but my favourite song plays, I don't want to miss it. Furthermore, nowadays I listen to the RP flac stream via the Foobar2000 player that supports WASAPI. I don't want to get into what it is, but the point is that it sends bit-perfect output directly to the playback device opposed to the default soundcard option that mixes system sounds with the music and in the process resamples it, degrading the quality. But for the flac stream, it doesn't display the artist/title at all in my player. Duh.

Solution: I wrote an AutoHotkey (AHK) script that fetches the now played song info from the RadioParadise API and sends a Desktop Notifications for each new song as well as displays the song info in a tooltip when hovering above the tray icon of the applet. A great feature is (thanks to the API returns the length of the song) that the tray tooltip shows the remaining time of the song.

How to run: I will share the .exe and the raw script as well. As you should not trust any random exe from the internet, you can download the script and run through AHK or compile it to exe (with AHK) once you see that there is nothing suspicious in the script. (Btw AHK is a great tool, 100% worth to learn it if your OS is Windows IMHO). If you are a technological muggle and trust a random guy's app from the internet (which you should not do) then run the exe.

Behaviour: Just open the applet or run the script via AHK. An icon will show up in the Windows tray - hover above it with the mouse and it will display a tooltip message with song info and the remaining time of the song. Also, a Desktop Notification will show up once a new song started. Optionally the Desktop Notifications can be disabled (right click or double click on the tray icon of the applet) - the tooltip will still show the song info when hovered above the tray icon. Close it with right-clicking on the tray icon and choose Exit.

Exe: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ai8YO7t8XT...


Disclaimer: Use it for your on responsibility. I wrote this for myself and I share it because I'm a nice person. Feedback is welcomed. I might respond to small change requests but no promises.

Enjoy!
 

Thanks! The script looks great. I'll fire up my Windows laptop & check it out this evening.
