    Smile review my drop-in nowListening template

    nowListening is a winamp plugin that allows you to place on your site what your listening to at the moment on winamp. it supports templates, so I created a template in php with the following features:

    grabs album art from amazon
    shows whether i'm listening now or not (via topbar content and color)
    allows searching shoutcast for said song

    this is not meant to be reskinnable, and i wanted it to be a one line php insert, so all styles are inline, so code is ugly.

    anyway, what i'd like to know is how is it for:

    general apearance
    usability
    and portability (i.e. is it fully styled)

    i'd also like suggestions to replace the shoutcast link... like
    rhapsody or itunes ... or tell me to keep it

    and general suggestions are welcome.

    so, what do you think??

    Overall it looks fine but it is not easy to read the text and i think that the last played title bar should be in a different colour (maybe blue) as it will match the website better than pink. Other than that it is fine.

    I hope this helps.

    thanks, i need the text to be small, so readability will always be an issue, and the title bar is meant to change color based on whether i'm currently playing or not... green=playing, red=off. i've improved it now, it looks better imho
