Bug Description

I'd like to see the music app strobe the camera flashlight to the beat of the music. I'll be the rave at all the parties when I combine it with my mirror ball!

Andrew also kindly points out the front led and screen should flash colors!

Upon checking my calendar, I see that it is not in fact April Fool's day, as this report would otherwise lead me to believe. :)

I think the only reasonable feature in this area would be some sort of Now Playing music spectrum visualizer, but we'd need to figure out the system level pieces we'd need access to. Conceivably, we might just need a Media Hub API. It seems that QAudioProbe [1] would allow us to analyze the buffers--which would be the first step in either flashing the screen/flashlight or generating animations. Perhaps MediaHub could expose pieces of QAudioProbe as a QML component to the Music app.

Whilst I wouldn't use this all the time (primarily because of battery concerns), this is a pretty awesome suggestion and I absolutely would use it from time-to-time...
