New Receiver Plugin Event - Start of play with media type being played

Description

It would be great to define actions based on items being played on Kodi ans what media type was being played. For example if a video started playing you could handle the event by making sure the receiver zone was on and the correct source was selected.

If you also knew what kind of media type was playing you could handle the event by making sure the correct surround setting was selected. For example if music started to play then the receiver could be told that the audio output should be in stereo. If a video started to play then the receiver could be told that the audio output should be in surround.

I guess for completeness you would tell the receiver plugin about items that are starting to be played, paused and stopped.

Obviously the receiver plugin would make these options configurable.

Well current broadcast based API does allow that already.

Just need to be implemented in a plugin.

But there's already a big list for plugins API extensions
