[MPlayer-users] suspend background tasks on play

Is there any way to suspend a background task when mplayer is playing
and resume when in stop or pause mode?

I normally run Mplayer on an Xbox with seti at home at nice -19 in the
background but it seems that task switching causes occasional picture
freezes, stopping the seti task allows (mostly) smooth plaback.

I'm wondering if there is a way to have an external script excecute when
a stop play or pause command is received. The external script could then
pause the background task, or anything else.
