It would be nice, if there was a feature in mpc that
allows to play avi files, that are being written by
other apps.
For example: I start downloading avi in my ftp client,
then i open the same file in player.
Currently mpc wants to open files in exclusive mode, so
it doesn't work.

Such functionality already exists in AVIPreview (by
AJ), but AVIpreview lacks other great features that are
present in MPC.

    yes please :) wmp can do it also. avi may be difficult, but
    mp3, mpeg etc.. should be easier. I would love to see this.
