Eu extrai os arquivos e não achei a opção "XMPlay2MSN" na tab DSP, conforme recomenda o tutorial!
Ele não funciona na última versão do programa, a 3.6.1?

I extracted the files, but I couldn´t find "XMPlay2MSN" option in DSP tab, as the tutorial said.
So, does this plug-in work in 3.6.1 version of the program?

Isso que é plugin, já tinha gostado do player, ainda com um plugin desses, com apenas 7kb, e funcionalidade total, deixa tudo perfeito!

This is a real plugin, already liked the player, and even more with a plugin like this, with just 7kb, e full functionality, it lets everything perfect!

O Puglin funcionou perfeitamente. Agora sim, o XMPlay é o meu player de música favorito o/

PS.: Para quem não funcionou, basta ler as instruções em "xmp-msn.txt" (em inglês) que vem junto com o download. Funciona a partir do Windows Live Messenger 7. =)

Digsby support would be great, but Trillian support would be better... Unfortunatly, it all depends on how those IM clients support the fonctionnality.

I've downloaded again the plugin. Now works. The one i had seems to be compiled on apr-15, and the new one on apr-16... So if you have problems, check the date of the dll. Bye

Great Plugin, kudos to the developer.

@kosmos: This plugin needs to be updated to work with xmplay 3.4, I'm sure there will be an update soon enough.
If you really need to use this plugin right now you could use the previous version, xmplay As for Vista though, thats beyond me.

#17 - nVein rated this file 3 stars on 2006-12-31, 09:28:09
XMPlay, Options and stuff, DSP, XMPlay2MSN, Config settings do not save accurately. For example, if the check is added to "Show XMPlay Version when not playing a file", we can see "XMPlay 3.3" in the Windows Live Messenger 8.0 window. That is correct but when we remove the check to "Show XMPlay Version when not playing a file", close out XMPlay completely, and reopen it, we can see "XMPlay 3.3" in Windows Live Messenger 8.0 again. That's a bug. Fix it and this will be perfect.

#7 - raina rated this file 5 stars on 2006-06-24, 11:41:06
A pointer: The plugin may not work if Windows Media Player isn't installed. I know it's crazy, retarted and whatnot but it might actually be Messenger not happily accepting the sent information if it can't find Media Player. I've witnessed this behaviour on stripped Win9x installations. The plugin itself is flawless.
