COM plugin. Allows internat and external automation of many aspects fo winamp.

An automation plugin for Winamp. This exposes a lot of winamp functionality through COM / ActiveX. You may use this to write VB or .NET or any other applications which interact with Winamp.

You can automate Winamp internally or externally. Write scripts that can be executed from the playlist, "Send To" menu or hot keys, or from external scripts and programs.

Some examples are included, but you are encouraged to write your own. Learn from the examples, use the included help file and Type Library as a reference.

Scripting for your Winamp!

Very easy to install and to get going with.

The help file is a definite read as well as the example scripts which will help you to get going on your own!

A neat little plugin!

Only the installation needs an update for win 7..i sorted it out, but took a bit. otherwise its 7 stars !! - April 5, 2010 by a_sure_thing a_sure_thing

ONly for those who know what they're doing - This plug-in is only for those who really know what they are doing. I couldn't even find the help file that everyone is talking about as being helpful. - February 11, 2007 by Michael Cam

Works within as well - Exposes every element that you're ever likely to want to control/get status of/query. Deserves 5-stars - January 27, 2005 by Richard Lailey

Boffo - This one's a hell of a lot of fun. Custom-tailor Winamp actions to suit your listening habits. The included help file is a little confusing but if you understand the media library's query language you can use notepad to make personal scripts out of the included examples.
