    Yeah, just like and App-Store (Plug-in Store). But somehow dukus' extensions plug-in does that in a way already - guess with MP2 it could do it in a more polished way.

    Will do!
    So even core-functionallity like volume-handling will be taken care of by plug-ins?

    No, the player volume is handled by the MP2 core system. But plugins can trigger volume changes and plugins can do system calls. So to implement the functionality you like, you first need to know what exactly you want. (When should the master volume be changed? Should it automatically be adapted when the player volume is set? Should a different volume selector be present?
    When you know how you want to realize your needs, you need to check what the MP2 core already does and what you need to implement in your plugin.

    For example, you could have a dedicated menu entry "Change master volume" with an own screen to change the volume. Or you could just override the shortcut key handler for volume changes and change the master volume instead of the player volume.
