Hello all,
I apologize if a similar question has been posted. My browser and the search function do not like each other.

Has there ever been discussion about the ability to view text files from slimserver? I ask because I have many text files that accompany my music. These text files contain detailed information about the music files in the that folder (song, date, source info). I understand that I could load tags and other stuff, but lets assume I don't have the time to update all of my tags. If you've ever downloaded a professionally recorded live music concert, you know what I am talking about.

Thoughts? Appreciate the help

I do have a plugin which will display a static text file:

It should be easy enough to adapt it to display some other files on the fly. I'd recommend you join us on the developers forum for further requests.

I agree that we should be able to see these text files in the Browser UI. All browsers already display txt files fine, if the Browser UI simply showed these txt files in Browse Music Folder view, the browser would display them when clicked on.

Re: tagging shows that have text info, Foobar2000 has a Live Show Tagger plugin that is a godsend. See my discussion here:
