Wanting improved "Now Playing" info export
Posted: Sat Feb 24, 2018 5:51 pm
I use the WinAmp AMIP plug-in to export info from my "Now Playing" track to a .txt file. When a new track starts playing, the txt file is overwritten with the new song's metadata, and that is exactly what I want it to do. It works fine but it is kind of limited in what info it will export. It provides Year, Song Title, and Artist (all of which I want), but I'd REALLY like to have the composer field as well. And yes, I need it written to a text file and not directly fed to another app (like Skype) or service (like Last.fm).
Does anyone know of a plug-in or other method I could use to accomplish that? I've searched but come up empty. Thanks!

Here is small Auto Script I use to print CD Covers, It can be easily modified to export any MMW field you need and available in scripting.
Here is what it is available http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/SDBSongData
Code: Select all
Set OpenInSpekButton = SDB.UI.AddMenuItem(SDB.UI.AddToolbar("Player Tools"), 0, 0)
OpenInSpekButton.OnClickFunc = "Tracklist"
OpenInSpekButton.UseScript = Script.ScriptPath
OpenInSpekButton.Hint = SDB.Localize("Tracklist")
OpenInSpekButton.Caption = SDB.Localize("Tracklist")
Dim i, i2, LST, trackl, trackstr
set trackl = SDB.Tools.FileSystem.CreateTextFile("c:\temp\Tracklist.txt", True)
i2 = SDB.AllVisibleSongList.Count - 1
For i = 0 To i2
Set LST = SDB.AllVisibleSongList.Item(i)
trackstr = Right("0" & i+1 & ". ", 4)
trackstr = trackstr & LST.ArtistName
trackstr = trackstr & " - " & LST.Title
