MSN plugin for BSplayer
Hi all,

Users of MSN 7.0 are probably aware of the feature : Turn on "What I'm Listening To".
This feature alternately displays the titles of the songs and artists you're currently listening to in Microsoft Windows Media Player.

A user in the feature request forum pointed out that it would be nice if BSplayer (your favourite mediaplayer) was able to do this too.

I promised to give it a try and here it is : my MSN plugin for BSplayer !
You can download it over here

To install it, just copy the dll in your BSPlayer plugin directory.
In MSN 7.0 Click next to your personal message, and then click Turn on "What I'm Listening To".

As always : feedback is appreciated.

Unfortunally I don't use MSN, but thank you for providing always new plugins for BSplayer!! :wink:

excellent, this plugins is very useful for not be disturbing when we watched a divx :)

it's possible to change the word "watching", by another like "regarde" in the msn message, because i'm french and it will be wonderfull if it's possible? :)

Erups 19th June 2005 09:49 PM

This was just what i was looking for.
May i suggest to change "watching" with "playing"?
Or, if BS allows: why not differentiate between audio files and video files?

RafkeP 20th June 2005 08:17 AM

All suggestions are welcome, thanks.
The differentiation between audio and video is already on my to-do list.

I was thinking of putting the film emoticon when watching a movie, but adding emoticons in this way is harder than it looks.

Anyway I intend to make the text completely customiseable, but it will take some time before I'm able to do it.

RafkeP 20th June 2005 07:08 PM

I made an update on my webpage.

The plugin now says "playing" iso "watching"
And for the French users I made a seperate build where it says "regarde"

thanks for all french, this is great work :)

USually the first frame is always black, so an icon does not look that usefull to me.
But a nice idea anyway.
Thanks for your time mate!

It was not my intention to really use a movie frame.
Someone made the suggestion to use the filmroll eoticon from messenger (you get this by typing (~) ) instead of the headphones.

as00 21st June 2005 10:50 AM

yes the fimroll is a good idea :)

great plugin thanks!!

any news on the 'film' icon yet?

and not have the 'playing' always showing, just the filename, and without the file extension as well?

would be very cool!! thanx dude

RafkeP 12th July 2005 09:19 PM

Thanks for the feedback, Norm. Really appreciated.

The next version will have :

- customiseable text (you will be able to replace playing with whatever you like)
- choice of 3 different icons : music, office and games (no filmroll yet)
- no more extention in the filename
- _ and . in the filename will be replaced by blanks

When will the next version be ready? I don't know: I'm currently enjoying life 8) , but I expect some updates by the end of next week.

much respect to you RafkeP, its a very cool plugin

shame about the filmroll icon, but its cool what youve made so far

take your time dude :wink:

RafkeP 18th July 2005 09:18 PM

I know it's only the beginning of the week, but I wanted to let everybody know that the new version has arrived : check it out at my website.

It contains all the changes I promised.
I didn't have much time to really test it (or to make a decent website),
so all feedback is welcome.

thanx for V4!

can work with windows live messenger ?
Hi, this plugin can work with windows live messenger?

RafkeP 30th May 2006 08:16 PM

To be honest : I don't know :D
Maybe someone with windows live messenger can try it and report here.

In any case : it won't hurt to try. The plugin will not do any damage if it doesn't work.

mihhkel 31st May 2006 12:00 PM

Works fine @ WLM 8.0.0689.00_Branches (latest public beta)

RafkeP 31st May 2006 08:47 PM

Thanks for testing, mihhkel.
I didn't have the time to test it myself.

Personally I hope BSplayer will keep supporting my old plugins for a long time. (and also the programs which the plugins are intended for).

genohem 2nd June 2006 06:10 PM

it works
yeeeii it works man congratulations excellent work :wink:
