Seems like no one in this forum knows about it so I'll ask my question here.

For me it doesn't work, can someone confirm? Or are there ways to make media utilities run properly under 5.0?

Media utilities is a no go, Not yet at least. Zooper pro works with some launchers but not all.

Its hit and miss... Enable notification access than in zooper make sure direct control and alternative data collection are selected.. Track, artist, and album text works... Album art does not unless you uncheck alternative data collection... But then the other stuff is broken.

I'm a bit late to the discussion but have (kind of) managed a workaround for this.

Download "Jacks Music Widget' and use the smallest music widget, which I think is 4x1.

Resize this widget using Nova, this effectively hides all the music controls and gives you a full size album art.

From there add your Zoopers on top.

I have this set up and it works great. Probably even better as Jacks music widget changes the artwork almost immediately and you have the added benefit of it not clogging up your Gallery, which MediaUtilities does.

You could just use Jacks Music widget tbh, but if your like me and need to personalise everything about your phone then its a little workaround that works.

I've attached a screen showing you my set up

Thank you both for the information! I'll give both methods a try.

Side note: Why aren't there more complaints of this problem?

Do only a small amount of people use Media Utilities with Zooper??? (unlikely)

Are only a small amount of people on Lollipop?

Is there an alternative program that folks are using with Zooper/Lollipop???

If you really need the functionality and arent attached to a launcher you could use themer which has MU built in, the same devs as MU, they've pretty much focused all their efforts on themer.
