Who knows if anyone has put this anywhere, but its too much of an undertaking to go through every single post. Sorry if there is.

anywho, does anyone IM? Like with AIM? Seen any other addin things that put the song title in your away message? There are a couple out there, but all use WINAMP, which bites. Its too hard to understand plus, I love my music player :-D dBpowerAmp

SOOOOOOOO, what Id like, is that. When Im IMing, I play music and it would be AWESOME for the titles to come up in my away message or something like that.:cool:

Got something to add? Feel free! Add what you think to this add-on!!!

It would also be good for other messengers.

It is doable, but would need to do some exploration...
I'm using just IRC and even that is rare...
but for example I could make a prog (or an extension to QueMaster) that would put the data into a text file and change it when the song changes... then you would need some plug-in to load the data and send it...

You could put it in your aim profile. Your profile is stored on your computer, so just make a program that can edit the profile, and put like %winamp as a hotkey to display the current winamp song playing or somethin. I was thinking about doing it but i don't have the time right now, but hopefully someone will.

Id love too, if I only knew how to make programs. I never had any trainging.

Im still waiting for someone else to do this b4 I get too old to even IM anymore haha.

I would love to see this option also on a related note, beign able to do the same thing with blogs and livejournals would also be cool!

this would also allow one to use a shell to control dbpoweramp directly!

it's not that hard...what you do i bring up your buddy list go to "my AIM",move your mouse down to "edit profile", and click on it and then click "next" 2 times then type in "$WA_SONG". no quotes. then your done :smile2:

That did nothing for me. Does it work with DB? and if so how?

Zerosk8er4554 what version of aim and winamp are you using, that code sure does not work for me.

P.S. Has anyone found anything that will do this yet?

Thanks!!

Yea he forgot to mention you need to use middle man, and middle_man isn't supported by new versions of aim, muchless triton. Hate to be the bearer of bad news.

Come on all you great programmers out there....someone can do this :-D

"SOOOOOOOO, what Id like, is that. When Im IMing, I play music and it would be AWESOME for the titles to come up in my away message or something like that. "

WHY? You think anyone on your buddy list gives a rat's behind what music track you're listening to? Sounds like a big fat waste of programming time to me.

well maybe some people do, and you really don't know that...

on the other hand you didn't probably seen real wastes of time yet if you call this one...

a very rude and an ipropriate response I'd say...

So...people keep making suggestions and continue to post in this thread, but is any action gonna be implemented into anything?

Well, at the moment Spoon is working on dMC r12, so it may be awhile. Then again, there may be no easy way to implement this for clients at all, or maybe it would only work for AIM itself and not any of the third-party clients.
