It's a nice and good script. For better handling it was intersting also can change the "Score Stars"(? - I only know the german title exact "Stückbewertung" with up to 5 stars).

Hi,

I like the idea, i feel that this is much better than using any kind of plasmoid for the same thing.

However, I do have one suggestion/question: would it be possible to change notification display time, since the message pops up and disapears so quickly you usually don't get a chance to use player controls? Just a few seconds more would be great... ;)

Other than that it's a very nice desktop addition.

Why not, right now it does just the wrong thing having a fixed display time, I had already decided not to set time at all so to stick to the notification daemon default, but I think implementing a preference shouldn't be that hard.
Next version will also display covers!!
