onPlayBackStarted in service addon
Can someone please point me in the right direction for listening to player events, onPlayBackStarted etc, in a service addon?

import xbmc

class PlayerEvents(xbmc.Player) :
    def onPlayBackStarted(self):



"init" gets logged but never "play", Python isn't my preferred language so I'm sure if there's a better way to subscribe to player events but I found some example code where they were listening to player event this way using the old autoexec.py
IIRC you need to have a while (!xbmc.abortRequested) or thereabouts there, otherwise your script completes immediately.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Yeah, you have to keep the script running by checking for a condition and then sleeping.
use xbmc.sleep not time.sleep..
