Plugin that writes playback status/now playing info to file

I'm looking for a plugin what writes now playing info (i.e. %artist% - %title%) or playback status ('paused'/'stopped') to a simple text file in a specific folder (outside fb2k install dir). Seems strange but I would like to make a World of Warcraft plugin that shows my music ingame, but sadly WoW plugins can only read files in their own directory and can't access anything outside WoW so this would be my solution to that. I have no problem with coding stuff, but got lost trying to get started with the fb2k SDK.

Any ideas/suggestions are welcome!
For instance: is it possible to write to this file outside of the fb2k install dir?

It nothing exists I'll give the SDK another shot and try to make something myself.

foo_np_simple should be exactly what you're looking for.

It should work, as it is a very simple plugin, but it hasn't been updated in a very long time, so it may have a few issues.
If it doesn't work, you could always write a script using JSPanel to simply write to a file, but the downside of that is that you will have to have a JSPanel somewhere in your UI.
