WMP Podcast Plugin

I keep getting the odd comment asking about my Windows Media Podcasting plug-in. The code currently online will not work with the final build of IE7. I need to re-compile against the new common feed list DLLs I think. However, I am so very busy at the moment with 3+ concurrent projects. To be honest, while I like the virtual pats on the back and thank you emails, those are not helping my slightly desperate rent situatiuon. Therefore spending time on a project that will basically have zero return is a luxury I cannot afford.
I do appreciate people showing an interest in the project and I apologise for not being able to continue it at the moment.

Download WMP Podcast Plugin

Follow-up to Updated Podcasts in Media Player Plugin from codeMonkey.Weblog();

You can now download the plug–in. It's still in beta and comes with no guarantees, so use at your own risk. If you find any bugs, etc please let me know.


You must be using IE 7 (Beta 2) for this to work. The plug–in uses the new feed subscription feature of IE 7 to pull in podcasts. Subscribe to feeds within IE 7 and make sure you check the "Download attached files" box – this will make it download podcasts.

Updated Podcasts in Media Player Plugin

New screen shot of my PiMP (Podcasts in Media Player) plug–in. (Click for full screen view)
wmp plugin 2

I ditched the slow and ugly grid for a nicer custom item list view control. Un–played shows are indicated by an icon. Click play starts a show playing. Clicking "Show Notes" opens a window to read HTML show notes.

I want to add sync stuff next and also scan show notes for time codes (hh:mm) and then skip playback to those locations.

WMP Plug–in base library

During my adventures creating Windows Media Player plug–ins in .NET I decided it would be good to have a standard base library to handle most of the WMP goo–code. The result is that making a simple plug–in now consists of just:
using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using Equin.WmpPluginLibrary;

namespace Test
[FriendlyName("My Plug-in")]
[Description("Example plug-in using Equin library.")]
public class MyPlugin : PluginBase
public override System.Windows.Forms.Control CreateUI()
Label label = new Label();
label.Text = "Hello, world!";
return label;

public class Installer : PluginInstaller<MyPlugin>


The class uses some custom attributes to describe the plug–in. These are used by the PluginInstaller to set WMPs registry settings.

If anyone is interested in developing WMP plug–ins using .NET then leave a comment. I'll probably make the library source available online if there is sufficient interest…
