Is it possible for software to detect what song is currently being played?
Got an idea and just want to know the feasibility of it. I want to be able to run software on any Windows/Mac and have it be able to detect a song that is being played from that machine. The should be able to be played from a variety of programs (iTunes, Spotify, Grooveshark, etc..), and my software could still extract the artist and title.
My software won't actually play any songs itself, it'll just sorta run in the background and broadcast what is being played.

Re: Is it possible to import a playlist into an app/website?
Sorry, should have been more clear.
The user would be willingly sharing this information. I want to create a program that a user can install on their PC that will broadcast to a website what song they are playing in real time. It shouldn't matter what software they are using to play their song, though.
I know Spotify can do this to Facebook, but I would like to do this for all programs to my own website.
