    Ok. mzemina and I have taken the task to put up a complete and topical list of available plugins.

    The goal is, to establish a topical list of available and working plugins in the download section of the web-site and/or find new maintainers for abandonned but interesting plugins.

    My start was the list Jean-Max did and maintained until the end of the last year (thanks again for the hard work).

    I eliminated all the plugins which are integrated in mp in the meantime and those which i know to work with rc2.

    So what I would like to know - either from the authors of the plugins, or users of these plugins:

    1. Does this plugin work with mp RC2?
    2. Is this plugin still under development?
    3. Do you still maintain the plugin?
    4. When was it updated the last time?
    5. Where can it be found/downloaded?
    6. Contact to the author (pm me or Mike (mzemina))

    So, if you can answer part of the questions. refer to the number in the list.
    if you have additional plugins, feel free to post them.

    Thank you for your support

    21. Shoutcast downloader Plugin (Juvinious):

    This pluging is not maintained, yet still available: refer to this url.
    It's function is replaced with the external program "Shoutcast downloader", to be found at the same location.
    This is my last project I wrote regarding .NET and shoutcast. It allows you to schedule and poll downloading of playlists according to a specific search or genre. It works fairly well, however it could be better, for instance utilizing mutexes for polling instead of locking up the whole program. The source is available if needed and as a Win32 installer which requires the .NET framework installed. Enjoy.
    I've added it to the repository, since I assume it can be removed as a plugin and added as a useful external program.
