    I would like to be able to receive events from my X20 when it starts/pauses or stops playing a file.

    It could be similar the way KODI does it or per example by manual configure a HTTP receiver that receives those events.


    Preferable:

    The event information contains the following:

    -- the file type that is being played (movie/TV show of music)

    -- file name

    -- Audio format (Stereo, Dolby, DTS, DTS-HD, Dolby Atmos etc)


    If this is possible than I could easily do some automation in my theatre setup to dim the lights etc.


    If I want the same results using the current ZIDOO API I would need to do periodic GET requests:

    “GET/ZidooVideoPlay/getPlayStatus”
