Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #13286 (October 21st 2022) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #7236 (March 11th 2021) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Yeah, new project. That's the... 2nd and the first project that has been released.

CoverPlaying fills some needs you might have when doing live streams or being at a party, and you want the Cover of the song, alongside the title and the artist, followed by a "with".


CoverPlaying Tab on Big Bento using obs to record
It is available for the Bento skins (Big Bento, Bento, or some mods of Bento, Big Bento, such as BentoX or Big Bento Redux)

P.S: Use it freely on your projects. I don't care  ;D

Yeah, great mod! Made a little post about it here. Before I notice this topic though. :p

I think you should add the ability to disable the "Now Playing" section, the "Version" section and allow for the listener to name the tab to what they want. -I'm sure people will appreciate it more if they had the choice of either displaying these things or not. Easy to do? Hard to do?

What do you think?

Yeah! It is not so hard. Good addition!

Downloaded and gave it a try. Yes. Does what it says on the box. :) But, it doesn't remember the settings next time I load the player though.

It was a one-line fix  ;D

Forgot to set the data to the skin, so it can be remembered :)
Thanks for noticing. I am kinda tired today, so the small update will be out tomorrow!  ;)

Hi ChocolateAdventurouz,

Something I noticed with CoverPlaying mod, and wanted to mention.
Sometimes, when I'm in Visualization Tab, I can see the picture from the CoverPlaying Tab underneith the Milkdrop2 preset that is playing.

After doing some searching, i wasn't able to fix that. I don't know if i can add something as a workaround (unlikely)...

I think it can only be avoided if any of the other tabs (Media Library, Video, Vizualisations, Browser) are set to not display the cover inside the CoverPlaying tab. And re-display it when the CoverPlaying tab is selected again. I don't see any other way.
