The real changes

The changes shown above don't really reflect the amount of effort that went into this release however. We've made deep structural changes to how SMG and the web extension communicate. Most of the interesting work on this release is in the updated web extension. However, because of what we changed, we've made it a lot easier to add the features that you guys have been requesting for a long time. Expect to see features that are more interesting to your streaming process after this update.

To expand on the updated web extension, we've made the whole process a lot more streamlined. Before, the extension was limited to a single tab, and stopped working sometimes when you switched focus to your game, this is not the case anymore. We've made many small changes to the web extension so that it works as you expect it to, without getting in your way.

v2.09

Added support for dubtrack.fm

Added support for music.microsoft.com

Feature - You can now add newlines using the edit title menu. use the <br> tag inside your options

For example, if you want to show

    darude
    sandstorm

Instead of

darude - sandstorm

Type - into the replace field and type `<br>' into the with field.

v2.08

Fix - Removed huge performance hog while using iTunes or jriver

Feature - Added log folder that can be used to diagnose problems

When you have problems with using smg, you can send along the files in the log folder via mail to help diagnose the issue.

Fix - Made YouTube more reliable

From this point on, YouTube will work with smg regardless of if you're using the groovemarklet or not. Before, it would only work /without/ the groovemarklet, which obviously caused confusion.

v2.07

Fix - Musicbee works again

Fix - Fixed missing numbers issue for winamp

Feature - You can now configure smg's polling rate

The polling rate tells smg how often it should check for changes in songs. You can adjust this rate in config/config.ini. The rate defaults to once every 1.5 seconds. It was deliberately chosen not to include this in the graphical interface, as most people won't need to change this.

v2.06

Fix - Fixed a potential crash at startup

Feature - Added an option to change the text when no song is playing

The default text "No song is currently playing" can now be changed. You can find it in the options menu.

Fix - Removed (broken) windows media player and Zune from the selection box for now.

Both Windows Media Player and Zune have never been supported well by smg at any point. Since they won't work, regardless of your configuration, I've removed them. I do have plans on supporting Windows Media Player again, even found a method that might just work this time.

New - Added support for VK.com music

New - Added support for clementine music player

v2.05

Fix - Osu! actually works again!

v2.04

Fix - Osu! works again

Change - updatable groovemarklet!

To receive groovemarklet updates, you need to redownload it! Mixcloud won't work without it!

New - mixcloud support

it requires you to replace your groovemarklet with the new one

v2.03

Fix - SMG will write to current_song.txt again

v2.02

Fix - Readded separator in vlc

Before fix: Sonata Arctica False News Travels Fast
After fix: Sonata Arctica - False News Travels Fast

Fix - Fixed support for Google Play Music

Google managed to break support for the Groovemarklet in a completely new and innovative way, thanks Google!
From now on, you won't need the groovemarklet anymore to get music from Google Play Music, SMG will do it directly.

Change - Incredibly exciting change

Made one of the random messages more readable by adding a newline.

Change and fix - Unifying Spotify

Remove Spotify after update and Spotify before update, unified them into "Spotify Desktop"
By this point, I'm assuming that people are using the latest version of Spotify.
If you're using the newest version of Spotify, you shouldn't run into any more problems.

Change - Album names will be hidden whenever possible from the SMG output.

Background: Considering the diversity of players that are supported, I had to make a decision about whether to show the album or not.
Some players show the album by default, most don't. Some don't support showing the album at all.
This makes features like toggling showing album or not very unreliable and extremely hard, if not impossible, to implement.
I have decided, because of these reasons, to simply try to hide album names whenever I can.

V2.01

Fix - Spotify

Fixed Spotify not updating all the time. Spotify works very well now.
