Is there a way to do it straight from MPC or could I create a separate program that would detect the file that is currently playing and delete it (I know it is possible to delete files while they are currently playing in MPC).

  • I would assume the biggest part of that problem is to delete the file while it is being played :D – Der Hochstapler Mar 22 '13 at 18:43
  • @OliverSalzburg Try it, it works. There is no conflict. – Isopycnal Oscillation Mar 22 '13 at 18:44
  • Doesn't work, error message tells me "The action can't be completed because the file is open in Media Player Classic - Home Cinema". – Der Hochstapler Mar 22 '13 at 18:56
  • @OliverSalzburg Interesting. It works for me! But yes, that would be a problem, I am guessing in that case the program would detect the delete request and put it on hold for deletion when the file has been released. – Isopycnal Oscillation Mar 22 '13 at 19:05

I know its late but if this helps others. I found this very helpfull

No doubt Winamp is the best player to play mp3. it has a little but very nice plugin call Play_List_file_remover v2.2 which enable user to delete file from now playing list and move to next track. file can be moved to recycle bin/ or permanently.

After lots of googling I was able to find compatible version of winamp and plugin, can be downloaded from here http://www.mediafire.com/folder/0ff11hrbzchf7/winamp

  • extract the plugin
  • after installing winamp
  • usually its in C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins
  • copy the gen_play_remove.dll file to plugin directory
  • restart winamp
  • winamp>option>preference>plugin>general purpose>hotkey support (enable it)
  • winamp>option>preference>Global hotkey (enable)>Playback:delete current song from playlist (assign a hot key)
  • restart winamp, start using hot key while playing
  • cheers :)
