Plastic Tunes is a “now-playing” plugin for wordpress that allows your blog to collect and display informations about the music you play in your media player. Artists, titles, albums and pretty much any information included in your digital music files. All goes into your database for real-time or later use, ready to be displayed on your sidebar, on a dedicated page or wherever you want. The concept of this plugin, and quite a few lines of code were originally taken from version 0.1 of the muTunes plugin, made by Ken Smith — although Plastic Tunes grew a lot since then.
