Is there some way xmms can send back the played song status (ie. how
many times a song has been played, and how many seconds have been
played the last time a song has been played) to an external program?
Try the "Song Change" Plugin, which you'll find in the "General" Tab
in the preferences.
I thought about it initially, but I suspect it would not offer any help. It
only gets involved when a song ends or when the playlist ends. Who knows
what happens in between such 'key events'....
What is needed is an extension of such a plug-in -- one that reacts upon
more key events.
For what it's worth, here's my change song command:
(date +', '%R' '%D; echo -n %s) >>
~/Main/Misc/Media/Audio/Playlist_dump/playlist.log; (date +''%R' '%D; echo
-n %s) > ~/public_html/track.txt;
Title defined as follows: %p, %t,%F, %y
