Now playing plugin for xmms?


Hi!
I'd like to be able to click a button on my keyboard to write my now playing songname. I figured that I should combine iTunes (to use my "My Computer" button that I use for nothing anyway) and the xmmsctrl plugin. Well, what command shall I use?

I want it to print nomatter if it's in a irc client, in a game or in a aMSN conversation. Shortly in any application.

It's like AMIP for winamp. If anyone could supply me with the right command i'd be grateful!

Thanks, I installed an RPM with it, but it doesn't display in the plugin windows?

EDIT: I couldn't compile from source, it didn't work.

I haven't used it in a while, but if the RPM installed some man pages or an entry /usr/share/docs or /usr/docs you should start there.

At the very least you will need to find the plugin, and copy it to your ~/.xmms/Plugins directory.
