Note: It is doing here what it should. I do not have much time currently to improve it or add new features.
This plugin is able to send your currently played music as ListeningTo infos to IM Messangers.
During listening to music, the artist and track infos can be set to your status messages.
It also includes a Repeater.
This way you can run MP on one and MirandaIM on an other pc. The plugin is able to send the data over the network to the repeater. The repeate then sets the ListeningTo infos to MirandaIM.
Since MediaPortal 1.1.0 you simply can install the extension using the extension installer.
The "ListeningTo Repeater.exe" is installed to MediaPortal install directory. You can copy it to any place you want.
