Msn Profile Pic Changer

Post by zark_be » Sun May 18, 2008 8:34 am

Hello


Yesterday, i've done my first mediamonkey (and msn) interaction with c#

resulted in something i wanted to do, change your msn profile picture with the one of the album currently playing.

Right now, all i do is change the profile picture, i could also do the artist/title playing thing, but since there's many plugins that do that.


So, i'd need a couple of people to test the thing, and possibly help me make it better :)

Right now it's an external program that hooks to MediaMonkey thru COM interface, and Msn too.

requests the current song playing, and gets the artwork list
from that artwork list, it gets the Cover(front) only.
If there's a folder.jpg version of the file, it will use that one,
otherwise it will write the embedded cover to disk (c:\msn_temp.jpg) and then tell msn to use either that file or the folder.jpg file.

That easy.

For the timings, it asks MediaMonkey how long until the next song change, updates the timer to that value.

So basically, it's working by polling, but it won't do too many ;)

couldn't get the events from MM to fireup.



Next step : make application work as a MM plugin and not an external .exe

Yeah, seems to be very cool! :D

Unfortunately I have exams now and no time to test it. But I'll have a look as soon as possilbe. :)

And I just found a possible problem. You posted:

But what happens when a Song will be skipped? Or a new songs is manually selected by hand?

Have a nice day!

Sorry but this doesn't work at all for me on Vista, even if I run it "as administrator". In fact it crashes afer a couple of minutes.

If you don't find a way to make this an MM plugin, a script to make it run automatically when you start MM might be a nice addition.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

well it will take longer to update the cover, but it will still update :)
you can in fact just click on the UPDATE button to force the update :)

trixmoto :

you need .NET 2.0 framework for this to run.

So far there's very little error checking, maybe your msn isn't compatible with the API i used. will try to add more error checking :)
I don't have any vista around, so i can't really try :(


i tested it on latest MM and Live Messenger 8.5

Can you make this an addon instead of EXE?

If it is no problem I would like too look at source code to see what and how you use MSN/Live API to change pic as if like you say you used ActiveX for both there should be no problem make it in plugin and/or even simple script.

I just unzip the file and ran "MM_MsnPictureChanger.exe" and got this:

"MM_MsnPictureChanger ha detectado un problema y debe cerrarse. Sentimos los inconvenientes ocasionados."

Then I ran "MM_MsnPictureChanger.application" and it says that cant download aplication.

Where do I have to unzip the file?, I'd really like to test this.
