WinampAway v1.0 (puts up an AIM away message through winamp)

I just finished my first winamp plugin called WinampAway. It will put up an away message for you in aim while listening to music. You can disable/enable the plugin and write a custom away message. Both are saved in winamp.ini.

Let me know if any bugs are found or if you have any suggestions. Thanks.

So far through a few friends of mine I have found that aim doesnt like the '&' sign in away messages. This has been fixed (replaces with 'and'). Also, when there is no metadata it doesn't show song info. This has been fixed as well (get data from IPC_GETPLAYLISTTITLE).

I am also looking for a way to come back from away when winamp is closed or the music is stopped. If you have an suggestions please let me know. thanks.

well it works, but... what about track changes? more support for other tags? perhaps have it send info to AIM only if the "winampaway" special away message is up so that when i come back from away, it doesnt put up a new message as soon as a new song starts. (i dunno if thats possible)

Just to make sure I understand. You are listening to music with the message up and then you decide you have something to talk to someone about. You come back from away but then the song changes and puts up an away message for you. This is something you do not want, correct? If that is the case the only thing I think that would be possible would be a hot-key or something you could press to disable the plug-in before you started talking. Other then that, the only other option (that I can think of) is to disable the plugin before talking.

Also, what other tags would you want supported? It does IDv1/2 and no tags (based on file name).

Thanks for the info.

i was thinking %a and %s were the only two tags (but i didnt play around with it) WA can support album, year, comment, genre, and tracknumber as well.

It would be good if once you set the away msg, you come back from it, the plugin is turned off, then a GLOBAL hotkey would be good to turn it back on. (perhaps add another choice in the config 'always on' if you didnt want my suggested feature)

Here it is. probably as much as I'm gonna do with it. I added hotkey support for enable/disable and it now closes the away message whenever the plugin is disabled or the music stops.
