    Is there a way to send song info (now playing) to Trillian chat?

    Is there a way to send song info (now playing) to Trillian chat users?

    I already can send Winamp/Windows Media Player song info (now playing) to a trillian chat window (for example (mkanet is now listening to: Beastie Boys - Brass Monkey)

    Now that I use Slimserver/Softsqueeze, I'd like to be able to do the same.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    More generically, the Trillian chat feature is adapted from MSN's feature allowing the same thing for music playing in WMP. Ditto with Google Talk, which can pick up track info from either WMP or Winamp.

    Hmmm... I guess there's no support for this after all. No wonder I couldn't find anything on this topic when doing a search. Well, thanks for the responses guys. I'm curious if this is a feature request that should go in the plugins area or maybe somewhere else?

    I really do not know Trillion but wonder if it might be possible somehow to use the announce html ouput of Last.FM (via the Last.fm/SlimScrobbler plugin)

    It's probably possible, in theory -- Trillian is based on libgaim (so
    is Adium for you OSX people). Gaim has a very extensive plugin
    architecture and supports most scripting languages, including Perl.

    That said, someone who knows how has to want it badly enough to do it.
    Gaim support is a lot more likely off the bat than Trillian support.

    Trillian Astra (newest version, in private alpha testing) has an
    interface now to get now playing information from WinAmp and iTunes
    into their status messages.

    I haven't been able to get it to work yet with streaming mp3 from
    Slimserver (or in any other way), but I am hopeful that once this is
    fixed/stable/released it will provide a structured way to get data
    from Slimserver into it too. I'm assuming a plugin will have to be
    written...

    Its been a while... I thought I'd check back to see if anyone ever figured out a way to get "Now playing" displayed in the status message of Trillian Astra. If there was a "Trillian Astra" social network app on mysqueezebox.com, that would work very well. Maybe, it has to be the other way around (like we originally thought) to add a Trillian Astra plugin for Squeezebox. If anyone has a clever way to even indirectly do this, please post here. I use both several times a day!

    Well, the "now playing" info is available on a per=player basis from the server's CLI interface.
    As an easy example, you can get the current artwork for a particular player using the following address in your browser.
    http://<server>:<port>/music/current/cover.jpg?player=<playerid>
    Have a look at http://<server>:<port>/en/html/docs/cli-api.html for a description of the CLI interface.

    This is only useful if you're using your own server (once the basic SB pattern, but I guess that's changing).
