Octocat-spinner-32 Rdio Current Track Status.AdiumScripts


Display current track information from Rdio for Mac as Adium Status.

How to Use

Add a custom status (Status -> Custom) and use %_rdio_track_artist (or another message option below) as the status message (screenshots below). Updated track info can take up to 20 seconds to appear.

Message Options:

Adium Status Message :: Actual Status Message Output

  • %_rdio_track_artist :: ♫ Track Name by Artist Name
  • %_rdio_track_album_artist :: ♫ Track Name from Album Name by Artist Name
  • %_rdio_listening_track_artist :: Listening to Track Name by Artist Name
  • %_rdio_listening_track__album_artist :: Listening to Track Name from Album Name by Artist Name


  • This script currently only works when listening to Rdio using the Mac app. Grab it here.
  • Since Rdio is a subscription service, you obviously must be a Rdio subscriber.
  • At some point, I hope to add support for the web-only client via the API.


Changing the status output message is easy. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Go to "Users/'your mac username'/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Scripts/"
  2. Right-click on "Rdio Current Track.AdiumScripts" select "Show Package Contents"
  3. Go to "Contents/Resources/"
  4. Open "Rdio.scpt" (double-click)
  5. Find the line starting with "return" and change to the desired format. (default is ♫ Track Name by Artist Name)
    Example: return "Listening to " & track_name & " by " & artist_name & " via Rdio"
  6. Save the AppleScript
  7. Restart Adium!

What is Rdio?

Rdio is an unlimited, on-demand social music service from the founders of Skype. Rdio brings music alive by letting subscribers listen to as many songs as they want, anytime, anywhere, and discover and share new music with friends.
