Winamp Control Centre
Winamp Control Centre consists of a collection of very small programs that you can use to control Winamp in a variety of scenarios. For example, you could create a taskbar toolbar that lets you easily pause, play, stop, and change tracks, etc. Details on how to do this is included in the Readme file. Please note that Winamp3 is not supported (Winamp 5, however, is supported).
New in version 1.4.3
New in version 1.4.3 is the /PLAYPAUSE switch, enabling you to start playing music if Winamp is currently stopped, or pause/unpause if Winamp is currently playing. Handy if, like me, you have a combined Play/Pause button on your keyboard that you want to map.
New in version 1.4.2
Version 1.4.2 does not contain any new functionality, but marks the open source release of Winamp Control Centre under the GNU General Public License. The source code for Winamp Control Centre can be downloaded here, and if you wish to offer modifications, suggestions or new features for the application, you can do so on GitHub.
Additionally, the "previous" and "next" icons have been increased to 4-bit colour depth (previously 1-bit) because the 1-bit icons seemed to cause issues on Windows XP or later (randomly being replaced with other icons in Explorer or the taskbar).
This version also incorporates changes from version 1.4.1, which I apparently never released. New in version 1.4.1 is a switch, /TOFRONT, which brings the Winamp window to the front of the screen - useful if you want to open a Winamp window, but Winamp is hidden behind another program.
Please see the included README.TXT file for information on using and installing Winamp Control Centre.
