CoverGloobus is a part of the Gloobus project
This is a simple application to show the cover and the info of what is playing in your favorite player. It also downloads the lyrics of the songs middle clicking on the applet.
You can create your themes with a easy XML file and plugins for different players are also really easy to implement. And plugins for different lyric engines are even easier!!
Players currently supported:
MPD (requires python-mpd)
Songbird (requires MPRIS plugin for Songbird)
VLC ( > 0.9.0)
When no cover is found, Covergloobus tries to fetch it from Amazon.
Please spread the word on forums, on planets, on your blog. We need documentation writers, translators, programmers, hackers, evangelists. If you don't have time to help, you can also...
