    Song Title & Time Display Plugin

    I am looking for a plugin for Winamp 2.X that will allow me to place a customizable display on the desktop. I am using a DSCustoms touchscreen, and am trying to maximize the viewable area for the Playlist editor. I have found a few OSD type plugins on winamp.com, but I am looking for one that is persistent (doesn't time out) and more importantly, includes the time display (preferably countdown).

    Anyone have something like this?

    I'm using this plugin right now on my new setup. It's resizable and you can change the colour of the song title etc... . It can show song title, album name and artist on the first 3 line of information, just crop the rest out ( try it and you'll see what i mean ). Oh, it get's it's info from the ID3 tag so be prepared to rename any blank MP3's you have.
    As for time display just use WinAmp's main window in "Windowshade Mode" and you get the time display plus a little EQ.
    Then stretch your playlist to the edges of your screen and you have a very nice display.
    I'll post some pic's tommorow for you of what mine looks like. This is not very usefull for Touch screen but you might be able to find idea's from it.

    Here's how i have mine setup for my new setup using a 10.4" screen. See what i mean about might not be to usefull for touchscreens but you do get to see the playlist and album, artist and songtitle info. Plus your time display is there also.

    I just upgraded to WinAmp 2.91, since it doublesizes in Windowshade mode.

    I think I'll go ahead and install that plugin, see how I like it.

    Thanks for the info
