Works like a charm, thx Dremora for this great linkage with Skype 

A bit unsual seems to me the placement of the settings-tab at the 'Advanced'-options.

foo_msnalt_stream places its settings at 'Display' and AFAIK another msn-now-playing-component I checked by the way was at 'Tools'.
Maybe a common-place for the settings-integration should be found as the use of binding places keeps the preferences-page more clean/tidy, less defragmented.

nice, small, functional component. thx!

one small feature request: would it be possible to somehow manage unicode support in text? i for example would like to add symbol of note inside it and if i use advanced properties it only input square for unknow character.

The note character isn't supported neither by the font used in foobar2000  text fields nor by the font used in Skype. Try pasting this character directly to the Skype profile mood, and you'll see the same square.

Hey Dremora, nice component!

I'd like to request option to unpause playback when the call is finished (if this is possible of course).
TIA

Very nice, thanks!

Please, add "a proper" preferences page...components are hard to find under "advanced".

I love this component because I don't have to use AMIP for it to work. Please update it! The suggestions above about changing the formatting would be really nice.

During the pause, or playback displays only one message: "foo_skype". How can I fix it?
ps. "Sand playing notification in Skype" is on.

To be able to talk with Skype, an application should first establish a connection with it. Sometimes (quite rarely) this connection is lost  (probably due to the long delay between request from Skype and reply from the application), and you should see “foo_skype: Disconnected” in the player console. If this is your case, a simple player restart should help.
In the next version I'll add automatic reconnection to solve this issue.

Thank for this very nice plugin. Just to mention that after disabling notification through Playback->Send playing notifications to Skype last shown text stays in Skype notification area. For the future it could be nice to remove the last text after disabling through options. That's only my suggestion. Thank you again!!!

Hi, that's the console message:
Quote
Skype playing notifications: Skype API is now available.
Skype playing notifications: Pending authorization.
Skype playing notifications: Connection successful.

But right now, just "foo_skype"
Sometimes it starts working as expected, but after that, freezing like: "paused: artist - title"

Nice Job & very stable plugin. Thx
- However when it 1st accesses Skype, it will replace any existing skype profile mood.
- Maybe it could first save any existing profile mood? (to for e.g the stop state) or simply give a warning.

Anyway Thx again.
