    media player caching

    Curious as to what most frontends or mediaplayers in general use to cache the file contents of their media players? Database, direct file-loading, serialization, etc... I noticed that parsing about 10,000 files directly from the file-entries takes a considerable amount of time, so that doesn't seem to be an efficient option.

    nevermind, xml storage tended to be the quickest easy solution

    You can use the WMP COM Object and have WMP cache the data list for you. Its very quick, I'm using it in my front end.
