$(getplaylisttitle:n) text render option

It would be nice if I could get the title from any item in the playlist.

$(getplaylisttitle:n)

Where n is the playlist item number who's title it is I want to grab.

That prolly will only apply to your playlist.

Can you explain what you're saying a bit more?

I dunno if this is what i'm looking for, but does this.
IPC_GETPLAYLISTTITLE 212 [somenumber]

Returns the title value of playlistentry [somenumber] right?

Nah not like that tommy, i've done that already with $(title). Maybe I should explain the context of what i'm doing.

I run a karaoke show Friday and saturday nights. Whenever I cue up a song, I change the Id3 title tag to the name of the person that will be singing that song. This way I can just show the customers the winamp playlist if they want to see where they are in line.

Using the overlay color feature of AVS I can display AVS behind the karaoke lyrics. So far I can display a countdown timer behind the lyrics, so the singer know's how long they have to sing for...

I'd like to put the name of the next title in the playlist instead of the current one, that way the countdown timer basically say's "This is who is singing next, and this is how long you have to wait"

hmm what about a freeform skin with a slightly resized time display?
another option would be to write you own (general purpose) plugin which displays the counter

If you can't say something nice, say something surrealistic.

god sometimes i type like i smoke crack..

ok lets say this is the playlist..

1. Banannas
2. Summer Lovin
3. Hot for teacher <----currently playing
4. Hound Dog
5. Cruisin USA

I'd like to specify which position i'd like to grab the title from.

Right now we have $(title:n) which returns the currently playing title. I'd like it if I could do a $(title:n)+1 to grab the next title, or $(title:n)+2 to grab the title 2 entries down the list. Alternatively having $(title:n)-1 to grab the previous title.

I wouldn't care if it was added to the text renderer or a new superscope function as long as I could declare it as a reg function and render reg text.

It just seems like too usefull a something too pass up. Please consider adding this function to avs. Or if someone would be so l33t as to write an ape, i'd be very grateful.
