Integration of foobar2000 with AIDA64
Lots of people using one of the most powerful monitoring tool - AIDA64.
www.aida64.com
It has an ability to display a so-called Sensor Panel - a special window dedicated to display a system info like CPU temperature, network usage, etc.
Which system info is to be displayed on the Sensor panel, how it is to be represented - is up to the user.
An example is provided in attachment.

This feature is very popular among people using PC cases with small embedded LCD-screens like Silverstone CW03, Thermaltake LUXA2 (see attachments).

So, users of AIDA64 would be very happy to have a possibility to display some realtime info from foobar on this Sensor Panel.
Info about a currently playing track - title, album etc.

I contacted AIDA64s dev team and they said:

We've checked the foobar2000 SDK, but it seems quite complicated to use. For such a minor improvement we simply find it too awkward and complex to deal with. Maybe we're looking at the wrong bits and pieces though, so if you (or someone else) can provide a short source code to detect the information you're looking for, we'd be happy to implement it.
As far as I understood, AIDA64 dev team needs some help to find out a way to obtain that realtime info.
So, can anyone help?

Depends on the shit being done. What do they want, song title display on track change?

Yes, only info from the currently playing song's tags - like %title%, %album% etc

I have no idea how AIDA64 works but if it can read the contents of a text file, have a look at this...

Great!
A very simple way!
Gonna tell AIDA64 dev team about it.
Thanks a lot!

This could be done from a playlist_callback_static. You could then use your SDK to interface with your hardware and the FB2K component to parse the title and wanted title formatting on each song change.

See https://github.com/mudlord/foobar2000/blob/master/foo_mircnp/foo_mircnp.cpp for a possibly outdated example.
