Play files that are in use by another application

That feature would be nice to have so it could preview movies that are being downloaded by P2P clients, etc.

if the file is locked by the application, it isn't possible to play it.
there is no directx feature to open locked files.
by the way: most file types doesn't like to be streamed like divx, if the beginning or the ending is missing...

Well, how about having it play a copy of the file that is in use?

This must be a feature of your p2p client.
Just choose to preview these files in KoolPlaya...

I remember having this discussion with Aki some time ago... I'm all for that feature - however, we settled on "Aki doesn't code well enough to implement it" so that I would finally shut up about it...
