Shows the currently playing track, album, and artist on the DashClock Widget

NOTE: DashClock does not allow me to add buttons to the listing, so until support for that is added I will not be able to add play controls. Go to the settings to set what music player opens when you press the dashclock entry. Your player cannot be autodetected so it must be manually configured.

Works with most music players. If your player does not work, try the suggestions below. If it still doesnt work then your player is not compatible because it does not broadcast out what its playing.

Android 4.4+: Enable the Notification Listener setting to support any player that also supports the android lockscreen music controls.

Android 4.3 and earlier: If your player has last.fm scrobbling support, enable that. If not, look for a setting to broadcast metadata and enable that.

To add support for your app, implement one of the apis listed here: http://bit.ly/YrBwz3

Recently changed in this version

-Fixed crash setting the default player
-Updated target sdk to 21 (Android 5.0)

Note: If the notification listener is not working, you might have to remove and readd the extension from being displayed in dashclock in order to start getting updates.

Also if you are running 4.3 do not enable the notification listener. It only works on 4.4 and higher but google does not provide a way to hide it in 4.3

    In order to get this to with properly with gone mad's lock screen widget turned off, you have to turn off the Dash Clock Music Listener and turn on Gone Mad's meta data broadcast setting. Then things should work!
