LOL ;) don't take it wrong, but the goal here is to do it cleanly...
What will a user think if opening his preferred media player brings him
to an empty mp3 file, when he just wanted to listen to one of his

I didn't ask for a workaround, I asked on this "dev" list to get an

However, thank you for trying to help me :)
