Interop magic

Notice the "Now playing" -ticker on the right-hand bar. It comes from the XMMS player, and is directly written on the NowPlaying page. No changes to JSPWiki are necessary - here's the relevant shell script that does the hard stuff, and is called by the XMMS Song Change -plugin every time the song changes:

#!/bin/sh

FILE=/tmp/NowPlaying.txt
DEST=grey:/p/web/www-data/butt-ugly/

echo $1 > $FILE
scp $FILE $DEST

You, of course, need to setup SSH so that you don't have to input a password. JSPWiki will notice that the page has been externally changed and will reload it.

Update: The question is, how do I do this for Winamp as well?
