    O.K. If we're gonna have IPod support, then I think its only fair to provide support for Internet radio. I use Winamp radio quite a bit at home. Problem is the playlist entries for internet radio are different than those for standard music files. Attached is my internet radio playlist using basic RR id3listformat=%title% / %artist% / %album%. I also tried filename, with and without ID3 tags, to no avail.

    From what I can tell Winamp has a set of commands called ATF that allows for if statements that is used to check the feed for certain info and based on that change playlist output accordingly.

    I use toaster with winamp. Toaster provides a popup based on condition changes in winamp. Its format includes album art (MP3 imbedded or folder if not) and four lines of text each having a right and left justified format. Toaster ID3V2 pic
    My Toaster settings are as follows:

    LINE 1LEFT: %plpos%/%pllen% $if(%ishttp%,,'('%lengthf%')' $if(%cmp(:status=New Rating)%,Rating,))
    LINE1RIGHT: $if(%ishttp%,Internet Radio,[$if2(%ratingstar%,Unrated)][ '('%playcount%')'])
    LINE2LEFT: $if(%ishttp%,%watitle%,$if2([%tracknumber%. ]%title%,$filepart(%filename%)))
    LINE3LEFT: $if(%ishttp%,%filename%,%artist%)
    LINE4LEFT: $if(%ishttp%,,$if2(%album%,%parentdir%))

    Line 2 is largest text and bold containing the Internet radio song title, artist, and station ID. I just can't figure out how to get RR to show it.

    I also noticed on some internet radio channels, the playlist info will change up to 4 times between songs - from previous song to station logo to station ID to "buffering" to new song. I have added "RELOADLIST" to my audio_player skins but the song title never updates to match what is being shown by winamp.

    Ask nicely... he doesn't have to put anything in...

    And as for why put iPod support in? The reason I wanted iPod support is that I'm using a laptop for a carputer, and the hd is only 20jiggas. Now if i plug in my ipod, boom, 40 extra gigs of music that I don't need to store on the laptop. I don't need itunes support.. infact I never use itunes.. With the mlpod plug in for winamp, it does all my syncing for me

    I think clipping screens is like a mask or alpha channel?

    Just Paint something PINK on the EMPTY image of a screen and you'll see that area "clipped off" the screen.. this allows you to easily make custom shapped menus and screens.. JPG should not be used for the EMPTY screen or the result may not be as expected (JPG compression changes some of the color of the pixels in the image)..
