Hi there!

In my project i'm using a reference to wmp.dll version 10.

Is there any possibility to get the "song name" from this url when playing.

I know how to get the title (example: WMP.currentMedia.getItemInfo("Title")) and other info, but
not to get the song name.

Is this possible with wmp.dll? I have found another audio library named bass.dll from
But i don't wanna use this, even though it is a very good library.

Thank you for any comment or answer.

    The "Title" only shows the title for the radio station, not the currently playing song.

    What i want is the currently live played song name. Like winamp nowplaying song name.
