To enable these go to the Tools menu, and click Now Playing X. Tick the corresponding checkbox. Please use the latest available version of your IM client!

In principle you can use Now Playing X with which ever site you want be it blog, social networking, video or wiki. You can easily add your favourite sites through options. Page title or specific HTML-element can be used as now playing status text source. YouTube is supported by default.

In order to support different IM clients this extension contains binary components. Additionally AIM users need to install a separate plugin when asked. .Net Framework is required if you want to use this extension with AIM, Skype or Yahoo! Messenger.
