Yeah, I already thought that the issue could be something like that. Thanks for fixing, now it works on my setup.

While the plugin seems to work somehow, they are a few problems I discovered: In some situations, an additional old item notification is followed by the new item notification, when the new one begins to play. Furthermore, I got a message while quitting.

At last, I just ran into the sort of crash Remi referred to. VLC does not crash every time a playlist item changes, I discovered the crash when there was only one item visible in the playlist.
Perhaps its a stupid question, but could it be possible to work around the problem by delaying the problematic part with performSelector(OnThread) or something like that?

Best regards,
