actually thinking about, you could do something yourself by parsing the lyrics and using the play position api

yes, but i will need to pull play position regularly, what is not a good solution. special event sent to plugin on lyrics line changes will be better.

Welcome to the forum Nendilo.
I took the liberty to remove the link you presented. I am sure your intentions are well, but the website you referred to has a bad reputation for trying to install different kind of stuff on your pc.
I edited your post, and gave a link to the website of the original creator of that specific Winamp plugin.
Have you tried if that plugin maybe works through the Winamp plugin import function in MusicBee?

Welcome to the forum Nendilo.
Thank you!!!

Where can I import it?

I have renamed the DLL-File from "gen_BrandonFullerNowPlaying.dll" to "mb_BrandonFullerNowPlaying.dll", copied in MusicBee Plugin-folder. When enable comes following message:

"DLL entry point: Initialise was not found"

I am not completely sure, so somebody else please correct me if I am wrong:

You will need to have Winamp installed. Then install the plugin (in Winamp).
Then find those installed plugin files in the relevant Winamp folder, and copy those to the MusicBee Plugins folder.
After that you start MusicBee, open the equalizer (and dsp) panel, and you click the button 'Import Winamp'.
The rest should be self-explanatory.

But be aware, there is no guarantee at all that all Winamp plugins will work in MusicBee.
(and the one you are looking at is almost 9 years old and no longer maintained)

sorry, no plans to add support for ftp. you could try to use sync software which will export files from local file system to ftp.

Hi there.. Love this plugin..
But im having trouble displaying ARTIST - TITLE if playing from a cue file.
It wants to display ALBUM ARTIST - ALBUM instead.
Is there a way around this..

Thanks...

Steven, do you have any comment on this? plugin just uses regular GetFileTag() api function and i have no cue files to test something.
