Winamp Control with VB .NET

I'm writing a little app and need the ability to get Winamp to play, pause, skip tracks etc.  How would I do this in VB .NET?  I figure I'd need to send an API call but my .NET skills in this area are all but non-existant!

Links would be appreciated to programming VB.NET to control WinAmp - as would any WinAmp control classes for VB.NET that someone might happen to have ;) (well, I can hope!)

Hope someone can help!

check this link out:
http://www.winamp.com/nsdn/winamp/sdk/

download the sdk which will allow you to do stuff with winamp. They also have samples written in C/C++ to help you get started. Also, join the discussion group thats mentioned on the website. Maybe someone in the group has already written something in .NET which will save you some time :)

hope that helps..

Thanks for your reply,

Unfortunatly all the samples are in Visual C++, and I need them in VB :(

I looked through the SDK and on the forum - they seem to jump down peoples throats who want to use VB.NET and refer them back to the SDK, which isn't VB oriented!

armoghan - I have a remote already built using Media Player, I need to make my current remote interface work with WinAmp as I have had a lot of requests for WinAmp Control!  The codeproject example unfortunatly is in C#, the same problem I seem to be having with everywhere I turn!

That converter only works for simple C# code like simple data types - it even converted the struct wrong! :-(

Look at:

(Change session-id or go to forums> Developer Center >Winamp Development, search for vb, article "Winamp 5 on Visual Basic")

It worked for me. Hope it helps..
