N900 Hack Pauses The Media Player When You Unplug The Headphones

How many times have you wanted your Nokia device to pause the media player when the headphones are pulled out? Not only does this keep your music taste private, it also saves you from possible embarrassment when the headphones come out accidentally and the phone starts blaring loudly.

N900 Hack Pauses The Media Player When You Unplug The Headphones

Fortunately there’s  a small application called ‘Headphone Daemon’ that lets you do just that. I’ve tested the application on myself and it works perfectly, the music player is paused instantaneously. It doesn’t even play for an extra second. To download this app, enable the extras-devel repository on the N900 if you already haven’t. (Here’s how to do it with one click.)

Look for ‘Headphone Daemon’ under ‘Multimedia’ and install it. Enjoy. Kudos to Thomas Perl for the hack. It works with the default Media Player, Mplayer and Panucci.
