Thanks. I had a look at FoxyTunes (as suggested by Konstantin) and that
is what it does. FoxyTunes  does not appear to be open source, though,
so I can't look at the DLL code (the DLL contains the XPCOM wrapper I
think). Do you happen to know of any tutorials on how to do this? I am
proficient in C++ so it doesn't have to be simple, but if I have to
compile nightlies just for linking then I'm probably not too

Thank you,
