Change your Yahoo Messenger status to the song you are listening in WMP

After a lot of searching i finally found a way to do this for Y!M

MessengerData Plugin

This is a Windows Media Player plugin that sits in the background whenever Windows Media Player is loaded and sets the status message of a logged on user in Yahoo Messenger (if loaded) to the current playing audio/video.

read more and download the plugin here

To change the Gtalk status to the song being played in windows media player ,

in windows media player, goto view–>plugins–>options

From the Category section of the Plug-ins tab, select ‘Background.’
Select the ‘Google Talk Music Plugin’ checkbox.
Click ‘OK.’
Restart Windows Media Player for changes to take place.


Update : Link updated. Apparently geocities was closed down and i forgot the file was on geocities. The plugin is an old one and might not work on new versions of Y!Mesenger.
