Should be possible. What XBMC version are you using?
but the events I'm getting when playing a movie seem to be specific to the movie being watched and not just a general "play" event
This makes it impossible for me to do the above, because there is no "general" event generated for play, stop etc.
The events should be generic enough to do what you want. But I need to see what events you are getting maybe something has changed..
turning the options in the XBMC2 plugin on/off make no difference,
Well there are two types of events in XBMC "Broadcast
" and the newer JSON-RPC "notifications
Enable broadcast events - Whether on or off, still receives events (provided the JSONRPCEventsConnect) action has been triggered.
"Enable broadcast events" effects if the plugin is listening to broadcast events if they are enabled/supported in XBMC. "JSONRPCEventsConnect" is to connect to XBMC to receive JSON-RPC notifications.
Broadcast Event Workaround - Whether on or off, doesn't seem to do anything ( maybe it does and I don't notice??)
When I had Broadcast events enabled, I always got the event repeated three times so I added this workaround that shouldn't have any effect unless the events are repeated.
Log Raw Events - whether on or off, makes no difference to the events I receive from XBMC
This setting should print the raw event exactly as it has received it from XBMC in addition to generate an usable event for EventGhost.
