When you are talking to someone, click the Messenger Plus icon above the text entry, there will be a sub menu for the plugin and everything is in there.

RE: [release] Music now playing
Before I had to reformat a few weeks ago, I had it to where the "Show What's Playing" would show my Winamp song, however, now it doens't, and I don't remember the Plug-in. Is it possible to make this one do that?

try the mess patch for winamp support (i think that should solve it - just run the mess patch, if there isn't an option to add winamp support it might do it automatically)

hmm, it pauses iTunes ok, but  when i try "/play" it says that the command entered was not recognised...
