I love your program, it lets me access files stored on my friends media server. i was hoping that it would let me open a file without having to copy it to a local directory though. but when i double click a file, it begins to copy it, instead of open it. so i guess i would like stream support? thanks!

  • Priority changed from minor (e.g. uncommon, cosmetic, has workaround) to critical (affects core workflow)
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Summary changed from streaming support to Streaming support
  • Milestone set to 2.0 Extra features

We would love to add support for streaming files to Swish but Explorer doesn't make it possible. At least not if Swish remains an Explorer extension.

It may be possible by making Swish a filesystem driver but that would mean rewriting it from scratch. Nevertheless, I'll keep this ticket open as a reminder.
