While using Gtalk, under the status drop down menu, you must have observed an option to set your current music track as your status message. It means, if your song track changes, automatically your status message too gets changed.
But as of now, this feature worked only with Windows’ inbuilt media player – Windows Media Player. So what about those who don’t like Windows Media Player and also people like me who rather prefer using ‘Winamp’? As of now I thought, this is not possible, but Manoj advised a tweak using which this feature could be used even while using Winamp.
Just follow these simple steps before you could start using it:
Go to Winamp root directory, mostly it is C:Program FilesWinamp
Select Tools-> Folder Options –> View (Tab) and uncheck the “Hide extensions for known file types” option and click OK.
Create an empty text file (Notepad file) on Winamp folder and rename it as “winamp.m3u” and save it.
Now restart your Gtalk and Winamp and start using “Show current music track” option. 🙂
By following the above 4 simple steps, you can tweak Gtalk to show current music track while playing songs in Winamp media player.
