Almost done with my addon for Kodi. It runs as a service in the background and activates a user defined scene in the settings when the video player is started, paused, stopped or ends. As well users can set the scenes for the music player. When I get it cleaned up I'll release it.

Thanks Josh, I'm trying to get it added to the kodi repository. I had this working via a hack using a different method but I realized most don't like going around hacking code. Cheers

Almost forgot this part. To get the shortcut menu to work you will need to assign a keymap in a keyboard file called keyboard.xml - this will need to be added under the userdata/keymaps directory within your kodi installation - In Windows 8 or 10 the path is %appdata%/Roaming/Kodi/keymaps/userdata

Copy and paste the following into a text file:




SetProperty(incontrolmenu,true,10000)








Save the text file as keyboard.xml in the usaerdata/keymaps directory.

Using the keyboard.xml settings in this example when you press control + Y via the shortcut menu you can activate 5 different scenes independent of kodi's player actions.
