Just wondering if everything else will still work the same, like with winamp, I modified a skin to include shuffle, repeat, opening of direct streaming files or a window to browse to specific files or folders.

Would we still be able to use the sendmessage commands or no?

Sorry this feels like it should be obvious but i am very tired and not knowledgeable of how plugins work, though would love to learn one day...

Very excited to try this out. I have been waiting for a clean winamp art retrieval since I first installed RM. Cant wait!
Thanks for being awesome

One small and incredibly ignored feature in plugins that I really miss is Track Index.
Using foobar200, there is currently no way of retrieving that it seems, unless use the winam_spam plugin, but that is just terrible and sucks at it.
So whenever you get around to getting direct support for foobar, that would be nice.
Till then I guess I'll just pretend I use winamp.
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

Ah cool, a fully featured wmp plugin. I was going to start on one in a few weeks during finals

But, if your working on it then its all good, if you need any help just ask, i can read C just fine now if you provide me a little documentation as to what you have already done.
I have three rules when I'm trying to help you.
  • Don't get mad when you don't understand something
  • Be VERY specific with what you ask for.
    The more specific you are, the higher the quality of support you receive.
  • Do not just copy and paste what I put in examples and come back saying it doesn't work.
    It does work, but I purposely left blanks that you need to fill for your specific needs.

I have WMP, Spotify, and Winamp fully implemented. Still have to do iTunes before a early release.

Does this plugin pull the default album art that the app is using (i.e. can it pull embedded art if that's what foobar is using for the currently playing track)?
