This idea is brainstorming the quantum computer- 'also known as the inside of my head' -for some time now.
I'll try to make this as briefly as possible: It all starts with my music collection. I have a pretty big MP3-releases
task which generates around 10gb (or more) of new albums and/or ep's, monthly! Because I try to check all of
them out (I know, that blows my mind everytime I realize it) there isn't always enough time to do some descent
sorting: and not enough time often means less overview and more getting lost.
I have been lost on several ways my life... * bla bla bla * (off-topic situation has been blocked by blaat.vbs)
We are getting closer at the actual 'issue:' best of/favorite tracks. While checking all of these tracks out often
I hear some sounds that deserve the awesomeness rating. Tracks I really diggg. One solution for that is by using
a simple but great Winamp plugin. Actually, two plugins. The one I use most is 'Send-To
' plugin: basicly you point
a folder on your computer where you would like to store favorite tracks. After that all that it takes is clicking the
right mouse button on a track of choice directly from within the Winamp Playlist. And BOOOM. It's done.IDEA: Mp3-Favoriter (in o.a. Windows Explorer)
The second plugin is 'Yar-matey! Playlist Copier
.' It also adds a context menu item- but this one appears in the
main menu context (the older versions < v1.07
).IDEA: Mp3-Favoriter (in o.a. Windows Explorer)
Another option: LastFM. Anyway, for me it once added nice functionality. But since they changed to the newstyled version of the
service, they basicly killed it. They really pissed me off (and many others) on removing the build in export functions. Those where
a big part of the reason I was using the audioscrobbler in the first place. I still use the scrobbler these days, but more as an extra
until the day that something else pops up...** but ain't no popping much for long long time
in a galaxy far far away... **

After years, suddenly... POPPPPP!
And here is where you guys blend in, hopefully. Just imagine with me...
What if you can right click any mp3 file in Windows Explorer and there was a context menu item that makes it possible to mark/tag
a track as favorite? What if that mark is not only placed inside the id3 (or elsewhere).. but what if it also makes the file.mp3 in
explorer more visual. Like a user given change of color in text or text background- like an actual marker? To give you an better idea
I made a screenshot of a folder an edited it with paint. So I faked it, but you get the picture!IDEA: Mp3-Favoriter (in o.a. Windows Explorer)
This would be the most basic concept. If it is possible to code into something, that might turn out to be pretty damn cool. From
there I have a bunch of other idea's- but I'll save them for now until the party started. Just wonder what your opion(s) are on this
subject. Thank you for your time so far, hope something good will evolve from it ..
