I have released WMPCDText, a Windows Media Player plug-in that finally adds support for CD-Text to WMP.

There is an option to automatically read CD-Text from unknown CD's. Alternatively, you can also right-click on a CD-track in the Now Playing-pane while the CD is playing, and click "Read CD-Text". There are some other options too, those can be changed in the plug-in's settings dialog.

Download

Enjoy!

September 1, 2007: I have updated WMPCDText with a fix for crashes that might occur in wmpvis.dll when a visualization is enabled in WMP. Please re-download and reinstall WMPCDText if WMP crashes when you advance to the next track, and these crashes started happening after installing WMPCDText.

December 22, 2007: I have released the final version: http://bmproductions.fixnum.org/wmpcdtext

July 9, 2008: WMPCDText 1.1 has been released. This new version fixes the "Error while executing SCSI command: SRB completed with error (4)" message.

July 28, 2009: WMPCDText 1.2 adds full compatibility with Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7.

July 20, 2012: WMPCDText 1.3 fixes the Read CD-Text menu item not appearing in certain cases, and a possible crash when opening WMP 12.

August 15, 2012: WMPCDText 1.4 fixes an issue that was introduced in version 1.3 and that could lead to a Windows Media Player crash.

Ok, So When You Do Another Update, 1 Thing To Do Is Make The Track Time Change With The Song, I Use Windows Media Center To Play My Cds, Which Uses Wmp To As The Player, Thats Great, Only Thing Is If The Song Doesn't Have A Composer,It Wont Display Track Time Correctly, Meaning That Instead Of The Current Time Of the Track, It'll Show The Time Of A Previous Track That Had The Composer. So If I Want To See The Time I Have To Go And Select View Track List, Then Go Back To Now Playing,Cant Figure How To Insert The Images With out A Url, So If I Can, May I Email You the Images?

It sounds like you have encountered a (previously unknown) bug in WMP. Do both WMP and Media Center display the incorrect track time?

And yes, if you have screen shots then please post them. You can upload them to an image sharing website like Imgur and include the URLs in your post. That way, other people on this forum will be able to see them too.

http://http://imgur.com/Q4eVv,B0zxv,WOK9b,ln1VP,igLp4# as You can See In This Image Was The Song I Was Playing


http://imgur.com/Q4eVv,B0zxv,WOK9b,ln1VP,igLp4#2 as you can See I Changed The Song With Out The Composer,With The Track Time Written Incorrectly


http://imgur.com/Q4eVv,B0zxv,WOK9b,ln1VP,igLp4#3 in This Photo I Went back to the track listing and then clicked now playing, that fixes the song information,and displays the correct Track Time

http://imgur.com/Q4eVv,B0zxv,WOK9b,ln1VP,igLp4#4 As You Can See The Song Listing with the correct time

And No It Won't Display The Wrong Info In Wm 12, Just Wmc,But Wmc Uses WM12 When Reading And Playing Both Video, And CD
