Currently playing info

Hi folks,
I have two questions.
I have built my plugin and I want to find out the ID3tag info of the
currently playing mp3. Particularily the Artist and album info.
The core functions available through the API pointer only seem to let me get the title displayed in the main window. Am I looking in the wrong place? where should I be looking?

My second question is about Jpegs , I understand there is a jpeg loader/decoder inbuilt into winamp where do I find it and how do I go about using it?

Sorry if I'm going over old ground here but I couldn't find any references to these on the forum.
thanks in advance..

For metadata, see api->metadb_getMetaData() and common/metatags.h.

For JPG, just use class SkinBitmap or AutoSkinBitmap. It will automatically handle PNGs and JPGs. (And anything else that has a decoder installed.)
