Player Questions

Greetings All,

I have several questions this afternoon. . .

1.  I am using Klaus Major's "makemesmile" function to play songs in  
REV.  If there is just one song in the list, I can figure out the  
duration.  However, if there are two or more songs in the list, the  
duration reported during the playback of the first song is the  
duration of just that song.  The duration reported during the  
playback of the second song is the cumulative duration of both  
songs . . . and so on.  Is it possible to get a report of the  
duration of all the songs together from the very start?

2. I would like to report which song is playing, but I'm not sure how  
to retrieve this information.

3. Klaus made his "makemesmile" function available to me because I  
was running into long file names that contained odd characters.  For  
the most part, his script works fine.  However, the following files  
refuse to play, and I'm wandering if anyone knows why.  They play OK  
in iTunes.  I thought maybe I was running up against a character  
limitation, but I have other songs that have longer names, and they  
play OK.
