AppVolume Plugin for Rainmeter

GitHub release Github All Releases
A plugin that extend Rainmeter functionality: Get apps volume and peak level, control apps volume and mute.

Parent measure

Options:

  • IgnoreSystemSound (default = 1)
    System sound is Windows notification sound.
    Set to 0 to include System Sound. Set to 1 to skip System Sound.

  • ExcludeApp
    Set a blacklist of apps you do not want to control or care.
    You need to include apps name and their extension, separate them by ;. Eg: ExcludeApp = rainmeter.exe;firefox.exe

Measure value:
Number: Total number of apps. You can use this value to generate enough child measures and prevent out of range error.
String: Current device name.

Example:

[AppVolumeParent]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = AppVolume
IgnoreSystemSound = 1

Child measure

Options:

  • Parent
    You have to set this to Parent measure name.

  • Index (default = 0)
    Index of app you want to get information and control. It has to be in range from 1 to number value of Parent measure.

  • AppName
    Specific name of app you want to get information and control. You need to include app name and its extension.
    Eg: Spotify.exe, AIMP.exe
    If this option is not empty and Index is also set, it overrides Index option.

  • NumberType (default = volume)
    Value you want to return in number value of measure. Valid options are volume or peak.

  • StringType (default = filename)
    Value you want to return in string value of measure. Valid options are filename or filepath.

Measure value:
Number: Depend on what you set in NumberType, it return current app volume or peak level.
String: Depend on what you set in StringType, it return current app only file name or full path.

Example:

[AppIndex2]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = AppVolume
Parent = AppVolumeParent
Index = 2
NumType = Peak
StringType = Filename
[FoobarVolume]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = AppVolume
Parent = AppVolumeParent
AppName = Foobar.exe
NumType = Volume
StringType = Filepath

Bangs

Both parent and child:

  • !CommandMeasure MeasureName "Update"
    You can use this bang after changing measure option so you do not have to set DynamicVariables = 1 Eg: LeftMouseUpAction = [!SetOption AppIndex2 NumType Volume][!CommandMeasure AppIndex2 "Update"]

Only child:

  • !CommandMeasure MeasureName "SetVolume x"
    x can be a absolute value (SetVolume 50 to set volume to 50%)
    Or a relative value (SetVolume +20 to increase volume by 20% or SetVolume -40 to decrease volume by 40%)

  • !CommandMeasure MeasureName "Mute" Mute app.

  • !CommandMeasure MeasureName "UnMute" Unmute app.

  • !CommandMeasure MeasureName "ToggleMute" Toggle mute app.

Section variable

Only available in Rainmeter version >= 4.1
An additional way to get app volume and peak by index or app name. DynamicVariables = 1 is required in where you use these variables.

[ParentMeasureName:GetVolumeFromIndex(x)]
[ParentMeasureName:GetPeakFromIndex(x)]
[ParentMeasureName:GetFileNameFromIndex(x)]
[ParentMeasureName:GetFilePathFromIndex(x)]
x is from 1 to number value of Parent measure.

[ParentMeasureName:GetVolumeFromAppName(name)]
[ParentMeasureName:GetPeakFromAppName(name)]
name is name of app you want to get. You need to include app name and its extension.

Example:

[AppVolumeParent]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = AppVolume
IgnoreSoundSystem = 0

[Calc_SpotifyVolume]
Measure = Calc
Formula = [AppVolumeParent:GetVolumeFromAppName(spotify.exe)] * 100
DynamicVariables = 1

[Meter_SpotifyVolume]
Meter = String
MeasureName = Calc_SpotifyVolume
Text = Spotify: %1%
FontSize = 40
FontColor = 1FD662
AntiAlias = 1

Big thanks to theAzack9 and tjhrulz who helped me get through some C++ stuff that I'm too noob to understand. I can't finish this one without them.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
