Does not work with the new Yahoo version 10 - November 21, 2009 by roy402

Yahoo 9.0 - Does not work with Yahoo 9.0 - January 7, 2009 by Joshua Scott

Awesome! - I like this plugin. It worked perfectly with 8.1 of Yahoo messenger. But I installed 9.0 Beta and it won't work maybe update it for use with 9.0? - April 13, 2008 by Sean Dickey

Work with Yahoo Messenger 8.1 - Fabolous. Maybe old and no update, but work with Yahoo Messenger 8.1. I cant find any other plugin that work on Yahoo Messenger 8.1Nice work. I hope for updates though... - January 30, 2008 by Jet Enduro

One That Actually Works!! - Have tried all the other posted here... but they don't seem to work with YIM 8.1But this one DOES!!great job.,. love seeing it run through what i am playing on my show so that people can see what is playing on the stationThanks for the awesome pluginDj - January 22, 2008 by Dj Highland

It works! - tested and working with Winamp 5.34 and Yahoo Messenger I've tried about 4 different yahoo status changes and this is the only one that has worked for me so far - November 6, 2007 by Dave Bemos

Works Well YM 8.1 - Appears to function as stated in my Yahoo Messenger 8.1. My initial reaction is that I like it. Nice basic compact plug-in.Positives: 1. Includes Band name, song, time of day, and Day as a busy status message in YM.2. Changes as songs advances3. Small: 236KB dll file.4. Easy install: Just place the in the downloaded zipped file to your Winamp/Plugins's directory. Fire up Winamp. Start YM and PinkCrow Winamp status shown.Negatives: 1. Not flexible: doesnt allow for status format alteration2. Shows status as Busy - October 31, 2007 by Jeff T

Not Bad, At Least It Works - Finally, a WinAmp plugin for Yahoo Messenger that actually works for Yahoo 8.1. It properly shows my currently playing song on both my end and on the end of friends on my YM list. The only reason I do not rate it higher is the lack of customization (which the author says is coming, but that was over a year ago). It also has the very useless addition of the time and day of week tacked on to the end of the song. Not sure why they felt that was important to put in at all and I wish I could get it out. The formatting is okay otherwise, except some extra || in front of the song name. - July 15, 2007 by Summer Wilson

seems to work with yahoo messenger 8.1 - :) - December 30, 2006 by aodalas .-

In sfarsit!... - 5 stele pentru Valeriu; in sfarsit am gasit si eu un plugn care sa functioneze si la ultima versiune de Y! Messenger. Ar fi mai bine ca userul sa mai si poti configura acest plug-in. Bafta in continuare! - December 18, 2006 by Alexandru Busuioc

Not changing status to current song - It is changing the status but only to a previous song and only that song regardless of what song is atcually playing. I have messenger beta - November 15, 2006 by John Welch

PinkCrowYahooStatusChanger - Great Yahoo Status display add-on unfortunantly if you want to stay invisible and STILL be able to use your winamp you can\'t. If the Author can update with an On/Off Option, it would make it better. :) - October 24, 2006 by JR Z

I love it - very nice - October 24, 2006 by Anca Corina

Very simple - I like this plugin because it's very simple and does exactly what I want -> display the current song and hour with no other configuration - May 30, 2006 by Gigel Kent
