Hi, How do i get the Path of the Playing song? I mean something like : C:/music/bla.mp3

//this gets the current song (ansi version)
char* file = (char*)SendMessage(hwnd_winamp,WM_WA_IPC,
//or as a unicode version
wchar_t* file = (wchar_t*)SendMessage(hwnd_winamp,WM_WA_IPC,
SendMessage(hwnd_winamp,WM_WA_IPC,0,IPC_GETLISTPOS),IPC_GETPLAYLISTFILEW);or you can just get it when IPC_PLAYING_FILE or IPC_PLAYING_FILEW is sent (see wa_ipc.h for how to get the notification).

Hi, Thanks for your Answer.
I tried that:
LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
if(message == WM_WA_IPC && lParam == IPC_PLAYING_FILE)
// do what you need to do here, e.g.
HWND hWnd = FindWindow(NULL,L"G-Amp");
But, i get nothing :/

you can't send a pointer to a string between processes like that. you'd need to use something like a WM_COPYDATA message to transfer between Winamp and your app (as seems to be what you're trying to do - hadn't we already covered this in earlier posts?).

Hm, i already fixed it. I used the wrong "Window"
