    Support for external storage

    USB-OTG is here!

    The scenario (already real):
    I am using a Google Pixel-C tablet (64 GB) together with a HooToo Shuttle USB 3.0 hub allowing to connect the tablet, an external power source (via USB-C) and one or more harddrives, while transfering data between tablet and harddrive! And while charging the tablet's battery at the same time! That's awesome! Now I can take all my MP3s with me, without having to pay Spotify or Google Music on a regular basis. And I do not need an internet connection while driving in my car.

    The wish for foobar2000 mobile (Android):
    Please make external storage available to foobar2000 Mobile (Android)!

    Currently, foobar2000's browser only supports "Internal Storage".

    I am using Total Commander for Android which has a very nice MP3 player included, allowing file system-based browsing and offering a nice equalizer. But I would like to see foobar2000 becoming more powerful than this (awesome) file manager.

    The configuration: Pixel C, HooToo Shuttle, 1.8" external Solid State Drive (256GB), external power supply via USB-C:

    Total Commander already supports external storage:

    It's nice to have that amount of storage
