[REQ] Option to "right click" and "open with"

Post by allvodi »

With audio and video files it's common to have to edit the file to adjust it with an editor. It is common with video apps but not in MediaMonkey. Therefore it becomes a 3 steps process rather than one.

I think this is a good idea for an addon. And it shouldn't be complex to implement... However, I'm hard pressed to find how to open that "Open With" dialog from the command line.

MM is able to execute shell commands without a problem, but the problem is that I can't find what command can be used.

Just to be sure I know what you're asking for; are you looking for this type of popup to appear when you click "open with"?

If MM5 isn't in the Open With menu then it is rather that the user installed Portable version that hasn't been registered into OS ?

I think they're requesting the ability to do "Open With" from within MediaMonkey. Hopefully they can reply and clarify.
