[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#415966: xfmedia: desktop file improvement: open multiple files

Package: xfmedia
Version: 0.9.1-6+b1
Severity: normal

When I select 20 files in nautilus, and choose open with XFmedia, it
opens up 20 xfmedia instances, all playing at the same time. That
behaviour is stupid...

If you change the Exec= line in the .desktop file to contain %F or %U,
that (supposedly) gives nautilus the necessary information to know that
xfmedia can handle multiple filenames (and URLs for the %U case), and it
will instead only fire up one xfmedia instance with a playlist of these
20 files.

See the Exec= section in
