    Squeezelite not allowing played filesto be deleted

    I was playing an album that I hadn't heard in a long time on the LMS server PC via Squeezelite. I decided I didn't want to keep the album any more, so I found the source files and tried to delete them.

    Only I can't as the action can't be completed because the files are open in Squeezelite-win.exe.

    It seems that after tracks have finished playing or are skipped, Squeezelite doesn't close the source file.

    I assume there's a bug here, which I can work around by restarting LMS.

    Something does not seem right with that because Squeezelite is getting the data via LMS not via the file system ... unless there is a special trick for playing local files.
    Imagine when Squeezelite is not on same machine as LMS and has no access.

    Yeah, I was surprised, but it was certainly the case for 6 of the recent songs I played. I cleared playlist, "powered off" the Squeezelite player, and still could not delete the files as they were in use my the process.

    I shut down the LMS server and restarted, and then I could remove them.

    Was this via the "Local Player" plugin?
