I'm trying to make a WMP now playing script for a friend and the only plugin which exports now playing info I've found is lousy shareware. So I figured this would be a good time to learn how to use coms.

My friend found a C# project which uses COMs to get all the tracks in the WMP library so it shouldn't be hard to get the now playing (if you know wtf your doing). http://www.codeproject.com/KB/audio-video/WindowsMediaListToXml.aspx

So I'm really asking if it's possible could someone make a COM based script to do this and explain the process. Not only will I love someone long time but I learn best from solid examples so hopefully I'd learn a lot.

This can't be done. I've looked into it quite a bit.

I have a WMP plugin that will write the now playing to a .txt file, but it can't output the "path\file" of now playing

I found a plugin to do that. The only problem now is that mirc doesn't like null tokens. So I need a simple a way process a string with null tokens or something frown

Author|Title|Duration|FileSize|FileType

author and title aren't guaranteed to exist

Update:
yay I found another alias to get tokens including null tokens, the one i had just started failing no clue why

Code:
if ($regex(<tokens>,/([^\|]*)(?:$|\|)/g)) {
  ;$regml(1) = author
  ;$regml(2) = title
  ;$regml(3) = diratopm
  ;$regml(4) = filesize
  ;$regml(5) = FileType
}

Here is the non-regex version in reply to froggie's:
Code:
tokenize 124 Author|Title|Duration|FileSize|FileType
;$1 = author
;$2 = title
;$3 = diratopm
;$4 = filesize
;$5 = filetype
