First time making anything that I felt like I wanted to share, so I don't quite know what to include here, but here goes. I've always hated the fact that I had to switch into MusicBee to search for a specific song, it takes time and it's just plain annoying. With inspiration from spotlight on OSX and Launchy, I made an accessible search bar that allows the user to search for songs in their nowplaying list and play it with a single click.

Github project: https://github.com/mjarlund/MusicBee-QuickPlay-Overlay
Release: https://github.com/mjarlund/MusicBee-QuickPlay-Overlay/releases

Enjoy :)

@mihkkalIs it possible to change this plugin so that you can also search for an artist?
FYI- the plugin developer hasn't been on the forum since 2017.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
