Hi Peter,

Do you have plans for adding a shell integration?
For example it would be nice to have:
right click on a folder with an album in a windows explorer and choose "play with XXHE".
And all tracks are played with XXHEengine3.exe without even starting the interface.
Because it takes forever to start XXHE on slow Pcs when all you need is to play an album without caring about album art and what song is now played.

Thank you
Andrey

Ideally I would like to see a little additional flexibility in addition to your request.

Ability to:

-  double left click an an individual track ( or tracks ) to play immediately ( thus overriding the current playlist )
-  right click on an individual track ( or tracks ) to enqueue on the current playing playlist
-  drag and drop an individual track ( or tracks ) onto an XXHE icon on the desktop.

These are pretty much the play functionality I was used to when using Foorbar and seemed to cover all needs.

Hopefully they can be incorporated into XXHE when Peter is comfortable that all the main bugs have been squashed.

Cheers Happy

Andrey and Russ,

Actually, I have been working on nearly each of those suggestions the other day (the enqueue on the current playlist I didn't think about before, but the idea is as good).

The technical problem I face (and this has been in here over one year ago I think) is that so far XX doesn't have an official install, and thus no file associations, and technically things go wrong at the determination where XX recides, or IOW, where to find the DLL's and all which are expected to be in the "start up folder" ... which will be the folder you're in, selecting that music.

So, this is a technicality (though a bit difficult to overcome) which ... I am trying to overcome right these days.
I think you can be sure to find this all in the very near future, just because I want it myself. Ok, because you want it.
Nah, it just belongs in there.

Peter


PS: Andrey, I know what you are talking about with the slow laptop and the coverart. Even on faster machines it slows down too much to my linkings, if coincidentally an album is actual with larger coverart files (and many of them). Coincidentally it was the next thing on my list to "eliminate" that from startup times. So, *that* will be solved in the next version anyway, if all goes as planned.
