multiremote

Note: multiremote has been replaced by Multiremote.NET!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.

Current version: 3.0 beta 4.01

Features
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.
Hotkeys 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.
Custom formats 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.
And more... 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.
