Got a weird bug today... Scud would only use a small selection of subfolders to launch a file from, not ANY of the remaining subfolders (7 launches confirmed that). Yesterday it was still working properly, and I hadn't closed Scud (or rebooted) since.

After I ended and restarted Scud, it worked fine again.

Hello skwire, I'm still using Scud! :) Love it!

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)

Please add an option not to build a list of files if the folder stays the same, I just love to click "pic random pic" many times, but building a list for 200GB pics it takes time to build.

One more option please: copy file to clipboard

2018 version!
Windows 10 updates at 4 in the morning and your comp reboots and all of your music tabs play at once!

 :tellme:

So I lost some open things but sometimes a nudge can be worked with.

I had proposed RandomMediaLauncher, but skwire probably thought about Scud missiles to be launched, so he named it Scud. 8)

I really like that out of 23240401 users, you, Rockets, are asking! :)

Just wanted to share this with all other Scud users: I found it helpful to use several copies of the Scud folder, each loading a different path. Sure, you can adjust the path every time you start Scud, pick one of your favorite path names stored in the settings, but this way it's even easier and just that little bit quicker to launch Scud to enjoy a random song from folder X, a random image from folder Y, or a video from folder Z. :)

I've created a set of folder copies for the specific 5 ways I use Scud most often.
