    Hello,

    Normally I just download a bunch of MP3 files and start playing the collection. Obviously I do not like all songs. Would it be possible to create some tasker actions which do the following:
    - Store full file path of song currently playing in a variable
    - Tell mediaplayer to go to next song
    - Delete file stored in the variable

    I think I can figure the last two actions, but I can't find a way to do the first.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Martijn

    Hhmm, maybe it's possible but I wouldn't count on it. What media app are you using?

    Unfortunately unless the player has a Tasker plugin that tells Tasker which file is playing I don't think you'll be able to do this, sorry!
