Audio files not playing in Finder,

My audio files used to be grey, or have covert art in the background and a play button directly on the file, and I was able to play the audio file directly in Finder. But recently, any new audio files I download no longer show the grey or cover art, or have the option to play it in Finder. Example below.



Does anyone know how to fix this?

Yes, that is exactly what I mean. Quick Look isn't working for me anymore for some reason.

Have a look here :-

/Macintosh HD/System/Library/QuickLook/

and make sure you have the 'Audio.qlgenerator' plugin

If it is there, then repairing permissions on the boot drive might fix it. If still no joy, then more work might be needed.

Hope you get it fixed, cos i love the quick look function
