VLC now playing script

This script is a simplification from one I found online @ http://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/245127/VLC_-_Now_Playing_Script!

/np will post the current track information into the active window.

alias np {
  sockclose vlc
  sockopen vlc localhost 8080 

on *:sockopen:vlc:{
  if $sockerr > 0 { echo -at vlc not running | sockclose vlc }
  sockwrite -n $sockname GET /requests/status.xml HTTP/1.1
  sockwrite -n $sockname Host: localhost
  sockwrite -n $sockname Authorization: Basic $encode(:password,m)
  sockwrite -n $sockname Connection: Keep-Alive
  sockwrite -n $sockname $crlf

on *:sockread:vlc: {
  if $sockerr > 0 { echo -a error | sockclose vlc }
  sockread %vlcx
  if ($regex(%vlcx,<info name='title'>(.*?)</info>)) {
    set %title $regml(1)
  if ($regex(%vlcx,<info name='artist'>(.*?)</info>)) {
    set %artist $regml(1)
  if ($regex(%vlcx,<info name='Bitrate'>(.*?)</info>)) {
    set %bitrate $regml(1)
  if ($regex(%vlcx,<length>(.*?)</length>)) {
    set %length $regml(1)
  if (</root> iswm %vlcx) {
    msg $active Now Playing: %artist - %title @ %bitrate Length: $duration(%length)
    unset %artist %title %bitrate %vlcx %length
