Why just a CD-player ? I mean: it would be nice to play CD's into channel, but I think more people play mp3's and such.
The trouble with music CD's is that they do not contain file names, artist names etc. unless you added it yourself. They would show as Track 01, Track 02 etc.
Fact is that more and more people listen to music while chatting, and it's commonly known that people share music files through DCC. But sadly it's hard to find a multi-server script, and some readily available player scripts are backdoored (like the one in MircPlus for instance). So why not meet the ever growing demands and have a player in mIRC ?
I do think having a player in mIRC would be good. Of course I'm not comparing, but even *cough*Pirch*spit* had one and *gag*MS Chat*puke* also had an option to browse through files to play music in channel, eventhough those were a bit rudimentary.
I myself feel that we shouldn't nag about whether it's a good idea or not: making a list of features this player should have, would be a better idea. See: no one knows mIRC coding better then Khaled so there would be a new challenge for him.
Finally I would like to end this posting with a message to Khaled, just in case he gets to read this:
Show 'em how it's done !
