Hey everyone!

I made a plugin that let's you play videos from MusicBee.

There were a couple of threads suggesting/mentioning the idea, but I think was ultimately neglected because video playback is not the focus of MB:

Previously, there has been the built-in video node (which I didn't know existed until recently!), but still didn't do exactly what I wanted it to do. Such things like running in the background, scrobbling tracks, and play from a mixed library (as opposed to having to be inside the video node. Think music videos).

This plugin sends the source file to a single-instance MPV window.
