Default Pidgin - What I'm listening to?

So I use Pidgin for IMing and I want to show my buddies what I'm listening to for music. Is it possible to do that on Pidgin or is there a program that will do it for me?

What music player software do you use? iTunes, Winamp, etc...

If you use Winamp, this Pidgin plugin will display the song info in your away message, profile, or status:
http://www.pidginmusic.info/news.php

This will work with most players, but will only display in your status:
http://code.google.com/p/musictracker/
