Add an option to autoplay the audio\video file in preview

When preview is enabled,clicking on a supported audio\video file will play it automatically in the preview window

This is up to the preview handler and outside the control of "Everything".

I wonder if there is an existing preview handler which does this?

Everything does has a auto play feature called winmm.

To enable this feature:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /winmm=1
Now, when you focus a file, it will be autoplayed via mciSendString.

To disable this feature:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /winmm=0

That option "winmm" is nice but I don't have any control of the player and it always appear behind everything and there is some kind of weird freeze\delay when I click on a file

If this is of any help to you,I am using activex control via autohotkey to make a player that does everything I want.
Here is an example(part of the code)

Gui,P:Add, ActiveX,X0 Y0 w320 h272 vAV , WMPLayer.OCX
AV.stretchToFit := true
AV.settings.volume := 100
AV.Settings.setMode("loop" ,true)
AV.Url := Path - Path is a variable that contains the file path I am clicking on
