Is there a good script/software/app/screensaver that will let you display on your computer screen the album art and info of the track that's currently playing on SB .. would be nice to also have art of upcoming songs in the playlist ect... I tried something from http://www.crayonroom.com/screensaver and although its good, it is old and lacks features....

The idea is in the setting of a party, a large TV screen will let punters know whats playing as well as what to expect next ..

Cheers

somebody did exactly this about 3 years ago. I can't remember the thread name or any good search terms, but maybe someone will....

Many thanks to the original poster, eliw, for starting this thread and the links within the thread. I was able to play around with the linked html files and was able to come up with a screen I really liked.
