VLC Extensions
Description:

This plugin reads the tags "Title", "Artist" and "Album" of the currently played music, and writes into 4 text files ( np_album.txt | np_artist.txt | np_artist_title.txt | np_title.txt )
Note: if no "Title" as found, the file name is used.

Can be used together with any software that can read input from a text file, such as streaming software (OBS, OBS Studio...).

np_album.txt = Contains just the Album.
np_artist.txt = Contains just the Artist.
np_title.txt = Contains just the Title.
np_artist_title.txt = Contains the name of Artist and the Title in one line.

If you have other ideas for outputs TXT's, do not hesitate to proposed.

The TXT's files will be saved in the VLC user director which can be found in the following places :
Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/
Windows: %APPDATA%/vlc
Mac OS X: /Users/%your_name%/Library/Application Support/org.videolan.vlc/
