Rhythmbox plugins have the ability to insert elements into the GStreamer
playback pipeline.  You can probably get enough information using the
standard GStreamer 'level' and 'spectrum' elements.  Your plugin would
then handle messages emitted by these elements and use the information
from those to update the device.  I don't think we have any examples of
plugins that do this currently.

Alternatively, I think you could write a GStreamer sink plugin that took
care of the whole process, which would make it easier to use this in
other applications.
