This has made me wonder if there is a setting, or if one could be
implemented to make the rockbox use the voice clips I have generated,
I mean if the unit is just playing from one song to the next, would we be
able to set it to play the voice clip just before it's accompanying song.
This would be cool if I am broadcasting over my cCrane FM transmitter.
BTW, the cCrane has pots inside and if you turn up the correct one, at one
of the ends, you will get about a block & a half with it.
BTW, what do you folks in the UK call a city block?

uh. it would be the act of pressing ON while playing such a recording,
then browsing to the opml-file, then playing it.
There are other functionalities some people want to have at their
fingertips that are NOT accessible so easily.

Browsing for the opml-file would then be more work if you got more
casts in one directory, PLUS the fact all casts have the same starting
string in the filename.

There could be a second assignment for mp3-Files to the opml-plugin.
The plugin then had to search for a corresponding (either the same
file name but different extension or even in id3-tags) opml-file so
the browsing-step for the correct opml-file can be dropped. The
opml-file would then be accessed by "ON, RIGHT-HOLD, then selecting to
correct plugin (max 2 clicks)". There you are. No way to do it with
less steps with any other plugin-integration.

uh, wait. It's long press on PLAY, then "Open with", then the list of
taking plugins.
