Spotify now-playing for mIRC - 05/02/21 03:35 PM

I have been looking around for a project like this so many times. And the most projects is outdated.
So now I have been learning c++ just for this.

My project is named Spoton and can be found as open source on Github

Installation Information
Here is an installation guide how to be able to run Spoton.
A script is also made for mIRC, a simple alias to write out the song. I didn't want to make something big, just basic.

I have also made the DLL-File Downloadable on Github if people don't know how to compile the c++ project.

Since the latest release Spoton will detect Spotify Premium and Spotify Free when paused.
This release also includes Advertise detection. But it's not 100% working.

An example how it looks like when just echo out the song in active window:

Will be good if you include not only Spotify, but Aimp, Winamp, Windows Media Player, Windows Groove .. smile

This sound like a good idea. What I know is there someone that already have created a Winamp NP DLL-File for mIRC.
But I can't be sure if this is going to happen. Still learning a lot.

Just to clear things up. I have more things I want to do for this Now Playing tool.
There will come more updates. Just wait a bit more. The thread here will also be updated.

I'm going to make a new thread about Now Playing for other Media Players. Which will be all in one, requested by some users.
But this will come when I have more C++ knowledge. because I don't want to read only title from Media Players.

Just to notice people that don't follow me on GitHub.
I have released version 1.0.4 which works best when advertisement comes up.
This also means that you need to update the script you use.
Empty title is now a part in advertisement detection's. Which is message "2", "3" doesn't exist anymore.

There is some more features I'm still working on.

I have put this project on ice because I didn't know if people still use my project. But I just noticed someone have made a feature request.

I hope you guys use my project. And I'm going to learn me more C++. Next post by me will maybe be an update of the project.
