View Full Version : Automatically mute Rhythmbox when you play a video in Firefox with paclientmonitor

Just a quick post to boost a new program called "paclientmonitor".

You can get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/paclientmonitor/

The README file offers this incantation for pausing and resuming Rhythmbox in response to YouTube videos etc being played in Firefox. But the syntax looks flexible enough to tackle anything of the sort:

paclientmonitor -n 'ALSA plug-in [firefox]' \
-c 'rhythmbox-client --no-start --pause' \
-d 'rhythmbox-client --no-start --play'
