Hehe, something geeky now.
Seeing some of those typical “now playing” tags in emails and blogs I was wondering how that could be automated, and perhaps posted into my blog.
I didn’t feel like auto adding a line at the bottom of my posts myself, hell that kind of tedious stuff is what computers where invented for, but there’s software that can do just that for you like the AMIP plugin for WinAmp.
So whenever I play an mp3 for more than 10 second in WinAmp, the script gets updated, and uploaded and displayed in the sidebar, with a time indication!
Pretty sweet huh? Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too.
Just in case you’re interested in the specifics, this is what the AMIP output preset looks like:
in.js looks like this:
document.write("&func_lc(%name) at &func_lc(%hstamp):&func_lc(%mstamp) &func_lc(%dstamp)/&func_lc(%monstamp)");

I use Audioscrobbler. They probably have a way of doing that.
Since I’m not a Mac user, I have no idea, but I see the AMIP plugin supports iTunes as a player, but I’m guessing that will be the Windows version only…
Check it out I’d say, and otherwise, there’s always Google :)
Looks nice. Any chance that you know how to do this with Apple iTunes? I’m not a PC user.
