Was cleaning up some files and found a mock-up of a widget style player I posted back in discussions on new mini-player ideas.
Now, with the aid of some recently added elements, I've been able to turn that mock-up into a small, fixed-size reality.

Mini Player [widget style]


views available ( L to R )
  • Standard View: showing dimming of 'Lyrics' icon when "No Lyrics" - MusicBee default skin
  • Artist View: mouse-over player controls shown- darkRED skin
  • Lyrics View - Mellon Remixed skin
  • Now Playing List View: track love & rating available - Pastels series: Citrine skin

  • Album Tracks View: album rating available: actual size - Tundra series: Aurora skin


Download available from here.

You will need the "WebHostingHub Glyphs" font available here.

You might also find "DeskPins" useful to keep the TM on top.

Please see the Wiki for installation instructions or just give a shout here.


Version 1.2: Updated:March 27, 2014
  • added 'Album Tracks' view.
  • 'Lyrics' icon now dims when no lyrics available
  • overlay panels are now translucent

Working great! So the font must be installed to display icons correctly. Thanks for sharing!

Very interesting, it reminds me something like an music app in a smartphone (Y)

added a link to DeskPins
an application recommended by ma_t14, that I find useful for keeping the smaller fixed-size TM's on top of other open windows
