    So I was goofing around as is my wont, looking through terabytes of videos for something to watch while not paying attention, and suddenly I somehow hit the spacebar with a video file selected, and lo, a window popped up and it began to play! I had no idea I could do that, and I still don't know what's playing the video file, but it's pretty spiffy.

    I also found it would open other files for viewing, and that's truly groovy as well, but I am not at all sure what is actually doing this. Is it Finder? Is it some nameless system utility? I'd always used VLC player for watching my videos, but now I have this other option and it's pretty darn cool.

    What system thingy is it that does this?

    AFAIK, it's a feature of Finder.

    That's my best guess. I've asked my dog, but he's busy watching White Fang and kinda ignored me.

    Ah! So that's it! Thank you! Good thing this old G4 MDD I got had Leopard on it, which has this as a new feature. My dog and I are both delighted.
