Thanks so much for this! I've been using this for my stream, unfortunately there is just one issue and that is if the song title or artist name have "&" in it the widget flashes on/off indefinitely while playing

Make sure you have the Remote Control option toggled in Settings under the Integrations tab first otherwise the files will do nothing. Save
now-playing-widget.html or now-playing-slider.html to a local directory on your machine and in OBS add a browser source and check the local file option. Browse for the file on your pc and queue up a song to make sure it works! Hope this helps

I replaced line 24 of now-playing-widget.html
if ($("span#tracktitle").html() != track.title) {
with
if ($("span#tracktitle").html().replace("&amp;","&") != track.title) {
since it seems that span#tracktitle.html() will place "&amp;" if there is ever an '&' in the song title.

@AmnesiacSloth Hmm I've tried this line change but still see the flashing issue :(
