    So, basically I want to have a profile where the condition would be asking whether music is playing and then have an action which is a reaction to that. I have seen an app in the play store called "Tasker Is Music Playing Plugin" which appears to do exactly this, however it costs $.99 and appears to have been designed for the pre-tasker-4.0 era which worries me, otherwise I would probably just suck it up and buy it... Is there a value I can input which would do this for me so I don't have to buy this app/worry about its compatibility? Thanks!

    You could use an application context which checks for ask the applications that can play music...would that do what you want?

    Just added tasker support to Media Utilities. Should give you easy play status along with a few other options.
