Option to delete files physically from playlist
An Option to delete files physically from playlist would be just great !,
it's very usefull for example when you are cleaning a folder with 5000 mp3's
and you want to delete those that you dislike (for any reason). I hear many people that
would like to have this, so its a good idea, and many players allready have it, so its not
a bad idea.
Greetings from Argentina, Lucas.

I agree with you Lucas. I sometimes run Wine + WinAmp to get to do this. However, WinAmp have no a "global hotkey" to do this (apart from typicall "Play", "Pause", etc). Usually I NEED to delete a song inmediately while I'm listening it, but don't like the need to put WinAmp in foregrund to do this.
So, I bet for this functionality in Audacious.
Hasta luego, Lucas!!

I'm inclined to disagree (by matter of opinion, however) - the vast majority of music players I have used in the past have had a very basic capability of performing delete functions on the files they are using. To me, a music player is not fulfilled without these basic capabilities...
If core devs are not willing to implement this, maybe there is someone who would like to write this in the form of a script?

It is obvious that all the people voting NO to this, never had to clean a vast music colection...
XMMS has that option...
Erase, Misc, Erase phisically, Really want to delete XYZ file?*, OK... Done...
It is not that complicated, right?
Hello xmms, here we go!
- you can select multiple files too

- Target version set to 3.5
I still don't agree with having this feature in a music player, but obviously a lot of people want it, so it can go in a plugin. It will be in 3.5:
