hrmm..It works for me using winamp 5.05 and WMP 10.  What type of file are 
you testing with ?  The winamp plugin doesn't work perfectly in some cases 
(it gets a bit confused sometimes with VBR files), WMP 10 works perfectly 
however.  Do you get a seek bar in winamp/WMP when playing on demand 
(static files) ?
