Media Player Classic is a nifty little media player – fantastic on functionality and light on load. Best of all – thanks to Pako, it now supports Snarl!
Pako has done a great job – not only has he created a Snarl extension in .net and connected to the Snarl Framework to generate the notifications, he’s also had to wait until the MPC-HC guys fixed a bug which was causing him some major problems.
Installation is very straightforward but here’s a quick run-through if, like me, you’re a bit thick and don’t read the instructions first time. Please note you must be running a Snarl 2.6 or Snarl 3.0 beta:
- Download and install MPC-HC V1.6.3. You will need this version at least as it fixes the bug mentioned above.
- Download and install Pako’s Snarl extension, make sure neither MPC nor Snarl are running at this point.
- Launch Snarl and MPC-HC
If everything’s gone ok, you should receive notifications from MPC-HC as soon as a song starts playing. There’s a whole bunch of other events which Pako’s extension exposes too!
