    Table of contents
    1. 1. Purpose
    2. 2. Description of change


    Integrate a VUMeter display on Music Now Playing

    Draw graphic with the different states of the VU. Name them VU1.png - VU15.png and store them in the Media\Animation\VU folder of your skin

    NOTE: This is only working with BASS Player selected as your Music Player

    Description of change

    insert on the beginning of the file. (e.g. after the <allowoverlay>)



    This enables vumeter support. If your Playing Now screen, does NOT contain a VUMeter, set the parameter to "no", then we won't do unnecessary retrieval of the peak level.

    Then insert your controls for the VUMeter. you need a control for the Left Level and Right Level:

          <visible>Player.HasAudio + Player.playing</visible>
          <visible>Player.HasAudio + Player.playing</visible>

    #VUMeterL and #VUMeterR will be replaced with the name of the gfx corresponding to the Level retrieved.
