Thanks for the good info Chris.
I'll look into the project. However, I hope that I can find a solution using 
OCX dispatch.
The dispatch provides all the functionalities I need.

Best regards / Med venlig hilsen

Play, definitely. Next, not specifically, but by sending the letter 'n' you can 
achieve that. Active device? Not sure what you mean there.

The one part that doesn't exist is "Get playing track". But you could manage 
this the other way around, by not invoking a playlist at all.
If you run "vlc --play-and-exit some_file.wav", then when that process 
terminates, the track has finished. Kill the process or send Ctrl-Q to skip to 
the next track. Keep track (pun intended) of what file you've most recently 

I'm not sure how this ties in with your headset testing, though.

By the look of things, the Yosemite project isn't a "here it is, just deploy 
it" solution, but you may find that there's some useful code you can borrow.
