    please include an 'Eject' command for CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc media in MP2. There needs to be a command at least accessible via the context menu of a disc. Maybe this needs to be available for other removable media too (USB, SD card etc.). In MP1 this is implemented . Maybe the respective code parts can be analyzed.

    Can we add this? I have a slot drive without and external button, Within MP2 there is no chance to eject a disk.

    Ready for testing.
    I just looked at it. Since I don't have a disc drive a mounted an ISO as a mock drive.

    Nereus folder view shows me a menu button "Eject Optical Disc". Is it possible to assign a disc icon in the skin?

    Clicking on it produces an error message in the log:
    [2020-01-05 08:05:40,096] [425940 ] [InputMgr ] [ERROR] - Media eject failed. Drive D could not be ejected!
    There is no context menu for the respective list entry. Also there is no visible menu entry for eject in other skins.
    Edit: As already merged into WiP2.3, I'll also commit there, makes it easier for me.

    I pushed code for this. Ready for testing.
    Thanks (y) I'll place an "Eject Optical Disc" Button into the DVD/Bluray OSD as known from other software.

    Also I'll add an icon for the menu entry, currently it uses the fallback icon (search).

    Changes will be pushed to your branch.
