This small application sits in the system tray and updates a text file with the currently playing audio track.
It supports the following media players:
If you choose to use iTunes, Snip will automatically launch it. (This is the behavior of the COM API and there's nothing I can do about it.) If you only use Spotify, you don't have to worry about it.
To switch between players just right-click on the icon in the system tray.
Snip will write a generic format output to a file called
Snip.txt within the
same folder as
Snip.exe. If you choose to save information to separate files,
the files will be called
Snip_History.txt (track history).
There are a handful of variables you can use within the Output Settings.
These variables only affect the output of Snip.txt itself.
- $$t = Track Title
- $$ut = TRACK TITLE
- $$lt = track title
- $$a = Track Artist
- $$ua = TRACK ARTIST
- $$la = track artist
- $$l = Track Album
- $$ul = TRACK ALBUM
- $$ll = track album
- $$i = Spotify track ID
- $$n = New line
- Next Track: Ctrl, Alt, ]
- Previous Track: Ctrl, Alt, [
- Volume Up: Ctrl, Alt, + (iTunes Only)
- Volume Down: Ctrl, Alt, - (iTunes Only)
- Mute Track: Ctrl, Alt, M (iTunes Only)
- Pause Track: Ctrl, Alt, P
- Play/Pause Track: Ctrl, Alt, Enter (Pause iTunes Only)
- Stop Track: Ctrl, Alt, Backspace (iTunes Only)
Snip is free; however, I've received a lot of requests from people wishing to donate. If you'd like to donate it's entirely up to you. You may donate here: PayPal
