Media Player Classic Plugin with ID3 support

Postby DanCake » Wed Feb 20, 2008 6:53 am

Bought a G15 Recently and decided to experiment a little bit with LcdStudio and C# ... lcdstudio/

This plugin provides:

Length (h:m:s)
Length (milliseconds)
Muted - 0 or 1, muted being 1
Now Playing (Filename)
Now Playing (Smart) - Gets the title from ID3 Tags, falling back to the filename when unavailable (ID3v2 > ID3v1 > Filename)
Path - Full path of the song / video.
Position %
Position (h:m:s)
Position (milliseconds)
Running - True or False
State Text - Playing, Paused or Stopped
Volume % - Media Player Classics Volume

There are also ID3 specific variables

Hope you like it

Very nice one. :) Thanks.

Is it possible to get some variables like bitrate, resolution or something from the webinterface?

The web interface provides very little information, only the basics really.
I've added bitrate parsed from the ID3 tags.

Resolution is another story...

This looks pretty cool, but I'm getting a 404 on the link you've provided.

edit: link working now! Thanks!

edit2: plugin works well as well. One little item I noticed - it appears that "mute status" returns "1" regardless if MPC is muted or not.

What version of MPC are you using?
It's working fine for me, displays 1 when the mute button is clicked or the volume = 0

Anybody happen to have this plugin? It seems good and I'd like to have it.
The download link in both this and the other MPC plugin post are broken.

Any upload would be greatly appreciated.
