ZdnBurns comment about generating multiple track preview (which could be done with phpStunts from the command line) reminded me of an old idea I have never put into practice.

Windows' Explorer supports plugin that generate previews for specific file types. If we had a preview generator in any modern compiled language, we could build a .dll that exposes the Preview Handler interface, and get previews straight in the file manager.

Attached a made-up screenshot of what it would look like. One can dream ::)


I would love that. Combined with metadata so you can filter or sort the list would be really powerful.
Edison once said,
"I have not failed 10,000 times,
I've successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work."
Currently running over 20 separate instances of Stunts

This would be ideal and would help bridge the gap between the 8.3 file name limitation and modern operating systems.
