I guess telling you to post what you have thus far would be a tad habitual?

i thought about open dialog and it reads the path, but that won't work becuase you can also drag and drop the music, some how i got to figure out how to let it know what songs playing and then it writes the path and it keeps doing that for every song

Typically, when 'embedding' the program you mean that you either use fileinstall to make a copy of it or use the existing one on your PC. Either way if you make your own GUI to try and interface with it, you usually end up simply running the program with different arguments that you get from your GUI. If the porgram doesn't have command line arguments it's harder....i guess you could try and hide the GUI already available and show your own, then update the hidden GUI accordinly but...WHY!!!??? whats wrong with the GUI already there? there's skins if you don't like the look^^
