Not sure if @onion still reads here but the media player does not recognize SID files anymore. The SID support works correctly. You can play files through a file manager.

The SID file has a header with author and date, can that be shown in the player?

Works just fine, great! Thanks!
Can't be used as ringtone in an ambience though, might be that browser for filenames doesn't accept the
sid format. Can that be enabled?

Otherwise, question: How did you do this, interested in making a different plugin this way. Do you have a git.repo?
