+1 to get any version of this, however hackery it might be.
Thanks!

The advantage of this was that it worked no matter what you were doing.

However, we've since worked on a system that reads the stream data, and uses THAT to pose the message.

It's still fairly hacky, but we're working on cleaning things up.
Sup stormdancer,

I was wondering if you'd made any progress with this?
I don't mind at all using a hacky script that works in the meantime until a nicely packaged .mmip comes around if you're open to sharing what you're working with currently?
I'd love to see something like this come to fruition and I'm sure others would as well.
+1
Been looking for something like this for years, I've seen for other music players but not for this one...
Really hoping this ends up getting released.

Hi,
Sure let me know when it is ready and I can make MMIP (MediaMonkey Install package)

FYI MM5 uses JS as Scripting and UI is based on chromium so it would be even easier to manage and make if your node is on JS.

I'm an old-school fan of splitting layers. Basically I wrote a small script in VBS, for MM, which writes the current song data out into a file.

Then there's a separate JS bot for Discord that runs via node, which takes that info and sends the info to discord.

The advantage of this was that it worked no matter what you were doing.

However, we've since worked on a system that reads the stream data, and uses THAT to pose the message.

Hi,
If you can make MM script and instructions how to set it up then MM plugin installation can be made.

If people are still interested in this, I wrote a discord bot, that works with a MM script, and announces the currently playing song. However, it requires that both systems are on the same machine.

Then a friend took this a bit further, and made it work off the streaming data.

Happy to discuss this further if there is still interest.

Hi,
There is nothing that obscure someone with knowledge of Game SDK/API to bind MM with. MM5 is build around chromium so you already have half baked bread. MMS is written in Node.JS, open source so there is even less limitations to make it. We would rather see MM released on MAC/Linux as fully fledged player than Discord (I personally do not use it at all), also I have Logitech G19s keyboard so I can control MM from any game on keyboard Display.

On the other side we are always here to help, improve, add missing features in MM to help developers to make plugins, even mostly allow them earn on monetizing them.

Well, there are already several requests to make a NodeJS binding to the Game SDK, so we'll see if anything comes of that before the request to put anything else into MM (though even with that, integrating it with MM would be difficult).

Hi,
It was same in MM4, but we enabled Object to be accessible in third party apps and DLLs that directly Access MM SDBApplication. Same thing can be done in MM5, just please ask there and someone will answer. If you think that something like that is missing let us know it can be added. Due the multi platform we need to think about it, but there is always space to add platform specific features.

Oh, man, do I love necroing a thread, but there's really no point to creating a new one just to report on this.

After some time, I looked into this again, and it looks like the Rich Presence API was deprecated in favor of the Game SDK Activity functionality (which means it's likely to be even more difficult to get it to say "Listening to" instead of "Playing", which I think is stupid). The fact that MM5 is build on Chromium makes this impossible, as you'd have to be able to run native DLLs. I'm about to start work again on a C# external tie-in app, maybe I'll be able to tweak it just right, but the devs' platform of choice has ruled this out as an internal functionality (and even then, it would be a dev thing, not scriptable, most likely).

Has there been an update? I am sure I am not the only one who desires one
