    Default New Utility : OSD Files Browser

    Hi, I try for many days to find an OSD menu that can navigate my file system , i try that old plugin MonsterOSD, but has some bugs.
    Base on this i make an utility app, is not an plugin, is application [.exe] that accept command line parameter [that can be give by girder].
    Is version one so... bugs .

    Install:
    You can add the font file in your windows/fonts directory.Run App. That is all.

    Usage:
    Just run this from in command line like cmd.exe, or girder
    Command Line parameter:
    -h xxx = height of the window
    -w xxx = width of the window
    -b = do not show the border
    -p "x..." = the path to start with
    -f "x..." = the extension of the files to show {list all with comma separator}
    -help = DO NOT show help {a little odd}
    Ex:
    OSDfv.exe -h 500 -w 1000 -b -p "C:\picture" -f "jpg,png,gif" -help
    - show files that end with .jpg, .gif, .png and directorys starting in C:\picture in a window of 500px by 1000px without border, without showing help page.
    OSDfv.exe -p "D:" -f
    - show all tipe of files and directorys starting in D:\ in standard window, showing help page.
    Default Values {used when missing parameter}:
    -h=400
    -w=600
    (with border)
    -p="C:\" (hope this exist to wour sistem)
    -f="mpg,mpeg,avi,mov,wmv,wma,mkv,mp3,mp4,m3u,xspf,p ls,asx,wpl" (for multimedia context)
