Or as on XBOX live, when launching a game it says something like "1 friend is playing this game now"

So when starting an episode, "jack and justin have watched this episode"
or maybe just "3 friends have seen this episode" if you have lots of friends and are size limited on the notification.

anyway, cool idea!

This would have to be at the plugin level, so a good request for the MB folks.

Cool idea that we plan on exploring. It would need to be an update on the plugin level. Also might need some API work to provide the data in a quick (possibly streaming) way. I'd do a feature request for trakt utilities and mention they can work with us directly if they determine any API work is needed.

Cool idea, i can see a lot of cool features with this, not just a pop-up of when your friends are watching something.

You could also show a pop-up when a friend has made a shout on a particular item and show that shout inside a mediaplayer. Or for example you could show a pop-up when you received a friend request.

What you could also do is show a pop-up when a particular episode is available to download. With a program like sickbeard this is already possible. But not everyone uses sickbeard so for other people it could be a welcome addition. You could for example set the time when the pop-up has to appear. For example one hour after it has been aired so you know it will be available to download.
