Description

Hello, thank you for this great media player! A constant pet peeve of mine is that the the "Copy" action on the filepath of a song copies it as an escaped URI instead of simply copying the filepath as it is shown.

So instead of it copying to clipboard:

~/Music/chiptune/keygenmusic/KEYGENMUSiC MusicPack/TFT/TFT - Feeding Frenzy 2 crk.xm

it copies:

file:///home/danb/Music/chiptune/keygenmusic/KEYGENMUSiC%20MusicPack/TFT/TFT%20-%20Feeding%20Frenzy%202%20crk.xm

Which cannot be used with any basic shell commands or file managers. It's even worse with non-latin characters!

If someone does indeed have a want for the URI, we could support both ways by making the filepath selectable text widget, i.e. you can highlight the filepath with the cursor and copy it.
