"Now Playing" MT trackbacks from Winamp.
This is pretty specific, so I don't know if anybody can help. I'm using Matt's method
of pinging my MT blog from within Winamp 5 (with the help of the Do Something
plugin) to keep a "Now Playing" list of songs. The basic setup as described by Matt
It gets trickier once I try to fool with it. Instead of just "Artist - Song" I'd like to display something like "Artist: Song (Album)" Apparently it's possible to add more tags to Do Something
, but since I don't really understand what's possible from within the trackback URL
, I found another method: changing the Advanced Title Formatting within Winamp's Preferences, and leaving %%CURRENTSONG%% in the URL untouched.
It looks like %artist%: %title% '('$padcut(%album%, 20)')'
is pretty close to what I want, but the results don't display right on my blog. The album title has weird spaces, and the padding doesn't show up.
If that's too specific, here's a broader question: has anything done anything cool expanding on Matt's instructions? I'd love a way to format a bigger entry for each song, perhaps even with album art etc. Thanks.
