Preview / play midi files in browser

I use several other daws, so I have tons of midi files that I've saved to be able to use later between them.
I wish it was possible to preview midi files in the browser the same way we can preview wav files. In Cubase, when i browse midi files the midi will play when I select a midi file, so I can hear what it actually is. It would be nice if this could be added to Fl as well. I'm not a programmer but it doesn't seem like something that should be that hard to do. Being able to hear the midi when browsing midi files in the browser would save allot of time. Right now we have to add a vst, in the channel rack, then drag the files on to it one by one to preview them.
It would be much simpler and faster to just have pure midi sound play when a file is selected in the browser. :)

Also, it would be nice to be able to flag samples as favorite in the browser. For example: In Nexus it's possible to rank presets with 1-5 stars, and Ableton's browser automatically ranks samples by how frequently they are used. This makes it easy to see what is your go to samples. Something like this would be nice to have in the FL browser. :)
