Double click to add a video

Hi, is it possible when we have to add a video in esampler, esimpler or eclip, the option to put a window and double click to access and load the video? it would be faster to work, sometimes opening the finder and dragging the video makes me lose a bit of time.

Hi vds,
If you use Ableton’s browser you can doubleclick on a video to load it in the currently selected clipslot. You can (permanently or temporarily) add a directory with videos to your ‘places’ . So this is a solution for eClips.

For eSampler and eSimpler it is different since Live automatically creates a Simpler device on a track if you have selected a miditrack (we cannot override this).
But I think using the browser to drag videos from can already speed up the process quite a bit compared to a 2nd finder window.
I hope this helps,

Yes, it is true with eclip it can be done, too bad it cannot also be done by double clicking where it says drop movie here in eSampler or eSimpler, thanks anyway, greetings
