Song File Viewer Plugin
This SqueezeCenter plugin finds any text files that are in the same source location as the currently playing local track. It displays a list of the files that are found within the player UI (under Extras > Song File Viewer), and allows those files to be displayed on the player.
It can be used to read additional information that you have stored that are included in tags, such as album reviews, for example.
Download the plugin.
Extract the content to your squeezecenter Server\Plugins folder.
Ensure the plugin is enabled in server settings.
No need to rescan the library – the files are found in real-time based on the file location of the currently playing track. The plugin will search that folder, and any sub-folders for .txt files.
The plugin will list all related files alphabetically. Right-arrow into a chosen file to view it. Use down/up arrow keys to view next/previous lines in the file. Left-arrow to go back to the list of files.
The following are planned:
