Bug Description

Wishlist:

It would be nice if Mixxx could handle URI locations natively.
On Linux, Mixxx can only handle those location when mounted into the local file system.

We should consider to store the track location as URI in the Mixxx database like many other players.

When running on a Gnome desktop the access to Samba, WebDAV and other popular protocols can achieved by GIO and GVfs.
I am sure there are appropriate solutions for the other platforms as well.

gvfs does it flawlessly. To solve this we need to combine Glib calls with Qt calls.
This is a bit chalanging, but can be a fun project. Pacmanfm-qt includes many of the required tricks.

We need to consider the performance issue as well:

At least I can use the "Computer" feature to browse to:
/run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share:server=wohnzimmer,share=volume/Musik
And play tracks.

Also adding this folder as library works.
