DashClock Music Extension


Shows the currently playing track, album, and artist on the DashClock Widget

NOTE: DashClock does not allow me to add buttons to the listing, so until support for that is added I will not be able to add play controls. Go to the settings to set what music player opens when you press the dashclock entry. Your player cannot be autodetected so it must be manually configured.

Works with:

Google Music
GoneMAD Music Player
Android Music Player
PlayerPro (enable scrobbling or settings - music library - music updates)
Neutron
PowerAMP
Rocket Player (enable scrobbling)
Official Last.FM Player
n7player (enable scrobbling)
Winamp (enable scrobbling and last.fm player needs to be installed)
doubleTwist
Grooveshark (enable scrobble to simple last.fm)
Shuttle (enable scrobbling)
JRTStudio Android Music Player
Rdio
Apollo
Nexmusic
Bubbleupnp (enable scrobbling)
Mixzing (enable scrobbling)
CloudAround (enable scrobbling)
Dood's Music Streamer (Enable Accessibility)
TTPod
Amazon MP3
Pandora (4.4+ only, enable notification listener)
Spotify (track info wont show up until the first track change)

Partial Support (Able to show song info but cannot detect if playing or paused):
musiXmatch
ZPlayer

Android 4.4+: Enable the Notification Listener setting to support any player that also supports the android lockscreen music controls.

Android 4.3 and earlier: Unfortunately Pandora, Songza, and 8tracks do not broadcast any playing info so it can not be supported. Jet Audio's scrobbling is broken so until that is fixed it will not be able to be supported either. Other players not listed might also work, but have not been tested. If the player supports last.fm scrobbling, it most likely will work if turned on.

-Fixed crash setting the default player
-Updated target sdk to 21 (Android 5.0)

Note: If the notification listener is not working, you might have to remove and readd the extension from being displayed in dashclock in order to start getting updates.

Also if you are running 4.3 do not enable the notification listener. It only works on 4.4 and higher but google does not provide a way to hide it in 4.3

Works great. This works as expected. I use it with Spotify and it works just fine. I especially like the lock screen art, looks real good. Controls work too. I think a lot of negative reviews are due to the lack of understanding of how the extension works. It also works with the cloud player (for SoundCloud).

Good extension! I love it, will rate at 5 with one simple addition. For the shortcut, can it be turned off/made null?
