YmercSS A library for communication between Yahoo® Widget Engine Widgets and Yahoo® Music Engine.


The "Yahoo® Music Engine Remote Control" is a library, written in JavaScript, which can be used by Yahoo® Widget Engine (YWE) Widgets to communicate with the "IRMPRemote" Yahoo® Music Engine's (YME) SDK class (More information about the "IRMPRemote" class can be found in the YME SDK site). You can use this library in order to send/get data to/from YME. The communication is being done using COM calls which the library uses to communicate with YME. The library also supports event notifications so your Widget can be notified about events which are sent by YME.

The library is available for download in a package which includes:

  1. "Read Me.htm" - A documentation file with full explanations about the library and usage examples.
  2. "YME Remote.js" - The "Yahoo® Music Engine Remote Control" library file.
  3. "YME Player.widget" - A sample Widget which demonstrates how to use the library within a Widget. You can also use it as a remote control Widget for YME.

If you're interested in the Widget only, you can download it separately, but remember that this is a very simple Widget which lacks many of the features which the YME Remote Control library provides. The sample Widget allows you to: see track information, album art, change tracks, pause/stop/play tracks, change volume, set rating and etc. A screenshot is shown at the top of this page.

I hope you'll find it useful. Feel free to use either the library or the sample Widget to create your own Widget/s. No credit is needed. I'll be really happy to see a Widget which looks and works much better than the sample Widget.

Remember that many efforts were made to ensure that both the library and the sample Widget work flawlessly, and that the information written in the documentation is correct. If you find some of it wrong, inaccurate or think that some information should be removed, changed or added, please contact me. See the "Contact" section for more information.

Enjoy !
