There are moments when we want to share the songs or albums that we are currently listening to with our friends, or maybe we want to post them on our blogs. At that time Now Playing plugin for Windows Media Player comes in handy. This plugin allows you to create a XML file with information about a song or entire playlist. This plugin also allows you to upload the XML file to a server of your choice using FTP/SFTP. The song information can also be posted on Twitter. This plugin automatically updates your Facebook profile page with what you are listening to. This plugin automatically fetches some extra information - the link and the album image cover, the media currently playing - from Amazon and Apple iTunes store. This plugin also provides you a possibility of pinging a server using HTTP POST request when the song changes. You can configure all these settings using a plethora of options available. It is fully customizable and feature rich. If Windows Media Player is the player of your choice then I will recommend you to download this plugin.
