    Hi Guys,

    Would you consider changing the way the option to use an external video player works so that instead of it applying to all video file types you could instead choose which file types should play externally and all others would continue to play internally?

    A configuration option where you add the extensions of file types you want to play in an external player to a list or something along those lines is what I'm thinking (see attached).

    Not sure if this is a big change or not but I can think of a few scenarios where this might be a useful feature. If someone thinks this is simple then we could make it harder by allowing the ability to specify different players for different file types :D.

    Seriously though, I have no idea how hard this would be but I'd love to hear what people think.

    Thanks and all the best,

    Wo0zy

    I will add this (simple version :) ) in patch for BD files handling so you can try it :).

    All in all, not so bad idea.
