Hello skwire, I'm still using Scud!
Should you ever consider an update, these things would be what I'd love to see:
1) Prevent Scud from being closed when ESC is hit
2) Allow the filter to contain more than one word (now you can filter for "Blue", but not "Blue 2010")
3) A 4th button at the buttom: "Launch random file" (to be able to use it for a folder that contains both audio and video files which should be randomly launched)
