Well I'd put a drop "button" in the preview window, with which you can
append the current selection in the previewer at the current position.
For effitcient usage we have to have the basic functionality accessible
over single-key commands. People from the editing world aren't used to
drag and drop. However dragging and dropping might be good for many
other users. However I don't think people will drag video files into the

Well the pain problem we have right now is to have a "player" with wich
we can let the user search for the positions he wants to have as start
