Lightbulb [PLUGIN] Windows Media Prevent-Lock Plugin

This is a plugin for Windows Media Player that will prevent the device from locking while playing media.

I've been looking for something like this for a long time, and have found nothing so I finally wrote one myself. I like my phone to lock after about 5 minutes for security purposes, but I also use it as my media player in my car, and typing the password in while driving every time I want to change songs gets real tiring... Took a while to finally figure out how to write a WMP mobile plugin, the MSDN documentation is horribly outdated; I could only find information on how to do it in VS2003, which didn't work on 2008.

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site

This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

Apparently there is a compatibility issue with WM5, and it crashes WMP.
