I’ve added a new feature to my blog (and my homepage) – a playlist of the 10 most recent songs I have been listening to.
I have ripped my own CD collection to mp3 files (for my own personal use !), and I play them on my PC using [url=http://www.winamp.com/]WinAmp v3[/url]. I have a plugin for WinAmp called [url=http://whatsplaying.sourceforge.net/]What’s Playing[/url], which I use to POST information to a PHP script on my webserver. This script is a modified version of that written by [url=http://ew.unmade.com/]Torgny[/url] which takes the POSTed information, and stores it into an XML file. Then to display this, another PHP script takes the XML and renders it into a CSS compliant HTML fragment. I then use different CSS to display the HTML on several pages on my site, depending on how I want it to look in each location.
Cool huh ?
