Automatically copy timecodes from Windows Media Player to the clipboard

Posted by Paltar on October 27, 2011 in C# |

A few days ago, TheSpoonyOne asked on twitter about a tool that automatically copies the current timecode of a video in Windows Media Player (WMP) to the clipboard whenever he pauses the video so that he can easily use the timecodes in other applications.

When trying to do this I found it to be really easy, using the WMP ActiveX Control that is part of the Windows SDK. It basically allows you to embed WMP in your own application.

So I created this simple program, that embeds WMP and listens to the pause button. Whenever the video is paused, the current position is copied to the clipboard.

You can download the program here: WMP_Timecodes
