One-line song information

Asked by Adam on 2010-01-04

Is it possible to display the song information as a one liner? For example:

%artist - %title (%time_played of %time_left)

I previously used "status -r 2" in the nyxmms2 client for xmms2. I like this because its less distracting (no scrolling), gives me all the information at once, and makes it easy to tell the artist and title apart (which can be difficult when playing new music).

So, is there some way to change the song information display? If not can we add this as a feature request?

Version 0.6.0 lets you do almost exactly what you're looking for. The only exception is that it only works for song metadata, not for the current position. So you could do "{artist} - {title} ({duration})".

Thanks Paul Kuliniewicz, that solved my question.
