I wrote this script some years ago to show currently playing music on conky. I also used this to bind some mediaplayer keys from Openbox to control playback and volume.

This is most likely in need of some re-write. Mostly because I’m a better programmer now compared to when I wrote it 4 years ago and the code is hard to look at currently.
