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?
