Hi, as you may have read in another topic, I switched from WinAmp to XMPlay today. One of the things I missed was the Systray Control Icons. I also didn't find a plugin on the support sites, so I decided to write this little tool (it's just 24kb!). However, I also didn't find the possibility to create "generic plugins" that would load when XMPlay starts. My solution: This tool will load at system startup and will hide the icons until you open XMPlay. I know, it's not the best solution, but it works (for me)!
This project was written in Visual Basic 6 using the sourcecode provided at the support sites
. It is open source, feel free to optimize the code, but please give me feedback!
you may download xmptray here
. german information page about the program is available here
if any of the runtime files is missing on your system, you may download it here
edit: this is how it will look like! note that you may create as many icons as you want...
EDIT 2009-12-24: To make this work in Vista/Win7, the program should be placed in your Program Files folder. Otherwise, it can be possible that the icons won't show up.
