Here's a new version of Winamp (V3.0) with a whole host of web related features. Files can be downloaded from same post in the Salling Clicker for Windows forum....

- lyrics direct from LyricWiki.org (ie. dropped LyricGrabber)
- album reviews from Amazon
- user reviews from Amazon
- discography from Rhapsody
- auto fetch album cover art from Amazon

It's by no means perfect, but nor is the data from Amazon or Rhapsody at times. It obviously requires that you have a working internet connection. You will need to register with Amazon Web Services to get an ID and then put that (in quotes) near the beginning of the script.

The album cover art functionality is now as follows:

- will look for any JPG file in the relevant folder
- if none found then will auto fetch from Amazon and save it as Amazon-Large.jpg, Amazon-Medium.jpg or Amazon-Small.jpg depending on which one it finds.
- have also added a Get All Cover Art option to the main menu. Be patient. This will run through your media library and pull the jpg for every album.

I am currently working on making all of the web calls asynchronous. They are at present synchronous so every now and again (infrequently) things will hang for a while as the web server is slow in responding. Generally speaking though things are quick.

For other script writers you may find the amazon/rhapsody code useful for your applications.... ie other music control programs or for movie reviews.....

Don't forget to get an AMAZON_ID - google Amazon Web Services and register....

Enjoy

Phil

I did say at the beginning that...

'Files can be downloaded from same post in the Salling Clicker for Windows forum....'

Sorry for the confusion. This link should take you to that posting...
