Nice work.

You seriously should think about releasing a shareware/payware stand-a-lone version of Avetunes

now that's a really good stuff there mate, better than weed !!! ;)

Not that I use WMP on regular basis, some of my friends would appreciate this as they are always drooling over AveTunes controllers. :)

So any other changes besides WMP support?

If we use iTunes, does installing this do anything for us or is the functionality the same as AveTunes 3?

this is a great addition and i've waaited forever for it, but when i used it it with WMP11 it makes WMP which usually takes around 15MB of memory on my computer jump up to around 200MB and stops when i stop using Avetunes again :( :( :(

yeah,it's a great release,i almost urinated on myself with excitement when i saw it...lol....im having a problem with it thought,whenever i play music on wmp 11 only parts of the song info are shown on some songs...like the artist name,album,song and cover are shown...but on some,the song name is shown,but the cover art and the artists name are missing.maybe im the only one experiencing this,but if someone knows why,please give me a hand.

just a thought, but it might be that your id tags for the songs that don't display properly are not completely filled out.

I don't use Avetunes or WMP but that you much for the release. Wonderful work.

thas actually happening to me as well but i'm using WMP 11, where even tho i definately have all the ID3 tags (i have over 20,000 songs) sometimes they wont show up. i thi nk its the version, maybe it doesn't read ID3v1?? in addition to the fact that it slows WMP11 and makes it jump up to bout 300MB worth of mem usage. i think its just made for WMP 9 :(....maybe Uice needs update or something.

i really love this release right but im having a few issues with it causing itunes to have an error (send error report comes up) when closing (causing the desklet to crash meaning i have to add it again it would just not change art for new songs after that) do you have any idea what might be causing this?...on its own multiplugin works fine so its not whats causing this mishap...im not sure what it is
