Hey! Silas here.

Since we got some requests for a plugin which allows us to share our music with the world i brainstormed a bit.
My idea is this:
-Use a simple share button in the player window
-Use the build in send tags (artist,track,etc)
-Send those files to a php/html file where the tags are inserted
-A facebook share link with variables is used to easy share the current song. Something like this:http://www.facebook.com/post.php={trackname} by {artist} in {album}
-Then you can press share and your friends knoe what you listen.

Notes:
This is just an idea which may solve some startup problems for developing this plugin.
-The buildin webbrowser could be used
-Add other clients

In willing to do the html part. Maybe steven could help with the button and sending the tags to the browser

Someone wants to try to make this? It seems quit complicated with the Facebook API and makes it hard to make a simple status updater with variables.

I was thinking about writing such plugin, but currently I'm very busy at my work. So I'm unsure when (if at all) I could do this.

I think writing the plugin isnt to hard. It needs to send the current artist and track name to a *php file. Here is is saved in a $ with those tags.
The facebook share will make a prewrited text with those in it :)
