I think you had something going back when you were trying it the other way.
I would probably set up a variable that changes ONSONGSTART so that it checks if the file is a song or video, and displays such slider info.
And the slider would have:
"$MYPOS$" for the code.
The "ONVIDEOSTART" can probably be set up in exectbl.ini, but I'm not on that computer to test that.
The only problem would be that if you have a song playing, then switch to video mid song, and then back to the song, it probably wouldn't update. (same issue if you use the script that MGD posted.)
did you try my method? (I haven't yet, but I have an idea to try if it doesn't work...)
@mstaedt - did you get your issue resolved? we kinda hijacked the thread here and I wanted to make sure your question was answered.
EDIT: got the Time.exe script working. you didnt tell me i had to make a variable called "$MYTIME$"..... well, technically you did, i just didnt know that it was specific to that variable. had to decompile it to figure it out. o well, thanks for the help
