Note: multiremote has been replaced by Multiremote.NET!
I suggest grabbing that instead, since it's superior to multiremote in pretty much every way. However, this page will be here for a for a few weeks or so.

|Multiple application support
||Support for Apple iTunes, Winamp, Foobar 2000* and QCD Player**.
* Seeking appears to be broken in Foobar 2000.
** Retrieving the current title is broken for QCD Player.
||Use hotkeys to control the applications and copy info about the current track to the clipboard, which enables to you paste (ctrl+v) it practically in any textbox, even in some games.
||You can specify your own formats, i.e. how multiremote handles the data it gets from winamp. See the readme for more info and a tutorial.
|Tray balloon tips
||You can use multiremote to display the currently playing song in a balloon tip (screenshot), very useful if you've got your played minimized to tray like I do. Obviously, you can turn these off.
||Choosing your own hotkeys, allowing them to automatically start the player if necessary, automatically pressing ctrl+v/enter/ctrl+enter on copy to clipboard, and more.
| 3.0 beta 4.01
|* Fixed: Song title is no longer displayed when pausing/unpausing in Winamp
| 3.0 Beta 4
|* Added support for balloon tips
* Fixed a few bugs that would crash multiremote when using it together with iTunes
* Removed logging/output features due to memory leaks
| 3.0 Beta 3
|* Fixed Autostart checkbox bug.
* Made Winamp the default player (instead of not having any default player at all).
* Added: Toggle shuffle / toggle repeat hotkeys for iTunes/Winamp/QCD Player.
| 3.0 Beta 2
|* Changed log timer from every 10 seconds to every 30 seconds to save resources.
* Fixed memory leak that occured when retrieving info from iTunes.
* Fixed the "Autostart at windows startup" option
* Fixed some other minor issues.
* Added commandline argument support. You can only use one at a time, and the supported arguments are:
* -prev, -play, -pause, -stop, -next, -volup, -voldown (self-explaining? if not, try reading again!)
* -b (skip backwards) and -f (skip forwards). That's all, folks.
I'm quite aware of the annoying memory leak when using the logging functions but I have no idea what's causing it, unfortunately.
