Mouse over MP3 preview

Sat May 09, 2009 1:00 pm
I have been trying to have mp3 /music files play automatically (sort of preview) when the mouse hovers over them. Lots of searches seem to sugget this feature is available in GNOME--Nautilus, but i have found nothing for KDE4. Is this available in Dolphin / Konqueror or any other file browser manager?
Any help would be appreciated.
many thanks

This used to be an option in KDE3. In KDE4, there are currently two ways to go about it.

1) Use the File Open dialog. Since previewing media files is a topic that was a work in progress at the time of the 4.2 release, it's partially implemented. Open a KDE application, say Dragon Player. Now, click Open Media and mouse over the file in the File Open dialog. A previewer opens up in the preview pane and plays the media file. You may need to enable the preview pane in the File Open dialog if you don't see a preview pane. Also, there's an option to let the dialog know whether to automatically play files or not. Your call.

2) Wait for KDE 4.3: http://ppenz.blogspot.com/2009/04/infor ... panel.html Currently, it looks like the preview is not automatic, but that may change, I guess.
