Very good plugin, some problems: 1. Shows the names of the files you're encoding. 2. Doesn't show unicode characters.

If you have problems when install, is because MSN-wilt.dll is located at c:, so move MSN-wilt.dll to c:program filesquintessential playerplugins ;-)

It's a good plugin! I was looking for this functionality.

I'm really enjoying this. There is a problem with it co-existing with the Yahoo Messenger Status plugin. I couldn't get the MSN plugin to update while the Yahoo plugin was active.

It's a great plugin sadly it doesn't work correctly (only displays track, Not Artist) with the latest beta 8.0.566. Brilliant Plugin though...

"It's a great plugin sadly it doesn't work correctly (only displays track, Not Artist) with the latest beta 8.0.566. Brilliant Plugin though..." I have the same problem with the last msn live beta. Example: "Silverchair - Across the night" , in the msn live beta only shows: " - Across the night" Its a good plugin , keep up the good work

It does seems to work for me. I guess I'm doing something wrong!? can someone help me figure it out? I'm trying it with QMP build 109 & MSN messanger 7.5.0311

It works for me! And now that it also works with Unicode characters, I can't really think of any reason not to give this plugin a rating of 100. :)

I love this plugin, been using it for ages (until I stopped using MSN and tried gaim, trillian etc) but now I'm using MSN again.. it's a real asset to QMP!

This isn't something I needed, but it's cool to know that you can show what you're listening to without using WMP now. Good Plugin

great plugin! it's exactly what i've been needing

Great work on this one, Tokelil! The encoding (showing the names) thing doesn't really bother me, but it would be nice if it could be fixed somehow. =) *** JUST UPDATED RATING TO 100! ***

Nice works, Thank you!

This is a great plugin. Congratulations! Anyway, i'd like to tell you a little bug (or I think so...) I always choice to hibernate my laptop (Pentium III, XPsp2(in Spanish), MSN7.5 and QCD 4.51a, plugin "MSN_wilt" v2.5.1), instead of turning off completely.OK. When I turn it on again, MSN shows "Track1","Track2",etc, instead of correct information about music i'm listening. To solve it, I must to re-confirm plugin options pressing OK within configuration window. Thanks!

Thanks for this plug-in! I gave 95 because I have a little problem: How can I change the order of the Title and the Artist?

This comment system isn't really the best place to help with getting the plug-in to work. Please either use the forum or write me an email at: toke 'at'

Error reports in this thread in the forum please:

@cyberpato: I can't reproduce this. It works fine here after hibernate.
@abacab: I will consider adding this in again. It was removed for WLM because Microsoft dropped support in one of the beta's, but unfortunately they added it back in later.
@Baller: I dropped support for doing that, since it isn t possible in Windows Media Player. The order is now the same as with WMP.
