I am new to AppleScript, but I would like to use the Breakaway app (http://mutablecode.com/apps/breakaway) to pause not only iTunes, but also Spotify and VLC player when I unplug my jack or press mute.
At first I thought I managed to do this by just creating a disconnect and connect trigger (breakaway > preferences > plugins) corresponding to two simple applescripts: “tell application “Spotify” to pause” and “tell application “Spotify” to play”, respectively.
This seemed to work well, until I plugged in my jack when I wasn’t using Spotify and VLC and they both launched and started playing!
So, what I want to achieve is the following:
- when I am using Spotify/ VLC it has to pause whenever I unplug my jack or press mute and it has to resume when I plug back in again or unmute.
- When I am not using Spotify/ VLC and I plug in or unplug my jack, it should not launch (and start playing, in the case of plug in).
Anyone knows how to do this? All help is appreciated!
