Hi guys, new here!

Used XBMC for ages... one of my favourite apps!
Looking to learn how to write plugins for it so decided to start with an idea i've had:

I want to create a plugin that essentially associates a music file with a video of my choosing and allows me to play the song on xbmc while showing the video at the same time. Additionally I'd like to be able to dynamically add effects to the video in real time depending on the EQ output of the song, something like Karaoke I guess but I don't care for having the lyrics on screen. Is something like this feasible as a plugin and if not what would it require me to do or even better, does something like this already exist?

Thanks for any help!
