Req Screensaver time if playing audio (Current Screensaver as Visualization add-on)
#1
I'd like to launch my current Kodi screensaver immediately (or with a custom 5-10-30sec delay) on music playback.
Such a slider in "Settings->Interface->Screensaver" would be nice.

Found similar threads about a fireplace or background music with screensaver, but, guess what? No solution in this forum yet Smile
Seems, the main difficulty is no python in viz support = C++ coding required. In Python it could have been straightforward xbmc.executebuiltin("ActivateScreensaver").
Anyone to code universal solution?

My actual screensaver is Turn off LG TV (particularly on music it does turn off LG screen via keymap or after 10 minutes, while AV-receiver continues playback).
A simple "Dim" as visualization will fit too.

you simply write a service add-on that polls the player on a sane interval...

It will work, however sounds like a duct tape, sorry.

I propose a 'feature request': separate slider "Screensaver time if playing audio" in "Settings->Interface->Screensaver" alongside with "Use visualization if playing audio".
