As you might know already, I have been working on MelScrobbleX for quite awhile, but the only problem is that it only worked on Mac OS X and not everyone has Macs. RyanA’s ActionStatus is incompatible with Windows, so I decided to write one from scratch. This one will support media detection from Winamp/foobar2000 and Media Player Classic and written in Visual Basic .net 2008 Express. Yes, it does sound silly, but the interface will be exactly the same as MelScrobbleX. So far, I have done some major progress on it, but now slowed down because well, the detection is going to be different… but don’t worry, a alpha release will be release once I get it caught up to speed.
People can whine about .Net all they want… It’s included already if you are using Vista or 7… so it’s no excuse there… Also, I decided not to use RealBasic since I won’t be able to detect anything that way, so my only choice was Visual Basic .Net, like it or not… Anyways, if you want to experiment on what I’m doing, the source can be obtained from github and licensed under the GNU Public License V3. All you need is Visual Basic 2008 Express the bare minimum to compile.
