I forgot to mention that the vlc.item array element is labeled "now_playing", for those interested in doing something similar. - Apr 14 2018
First of all, thanks for this extension. I listen to bluesradio.gr (if you're a blues fan, you've got to check it out!) and I took your lua file and added another function to handle the "Now Playing" metadata item. I send it to a np_now_playing.txt file, then pick that up in my raspberry pi screensaver, dump the text to the display, and I've got a continuously updated display of what I'm listening to. Works like a charm.
