I’ve come to find out that my choice in music molds the choices of those closest to me on my Google Talk list. This morning when I turned on Windows Media Player, Google Talk wasn’t displaying my currently playing music track, so needless to say, this sent my following of geeks into an uproar. If your Google Talk application decides that it wants to pull this little stunt on you, you’ve got 2 options. 1. Install last.fm or 2. follow the instructions below:
- Open Windows Media Player
- Click all over while looking for a damn menu (I found mine on the bottom of the Now Playing tab)
- Select “More Options”
- Click on the “Plugins” tab
- Click on the “Background” category
- Make sure that Google Talk Music Plugin is selected
If that doesn’t work, repeat the same process, but unselect the Google Talk Music Plugin and save the changes, and exit out of Windows Media Player and Google talk. Then go back in and turn it back on, then open up Google Talk. You should be golden.
