how to get konqueror to play mp3s on hover

I had been using PCLOS for a good while, and I had grown accustomed to being able to play my mp3s by hovering over the icons in the file browser window. That was such a convenience for quickly pre-viewing a song without having to open a separate program.

If anyone knows what program or browser plug-in needs to be installed, or what settings need to be changed, please help me out.

Thanks in advance.

I figured out how to do this in GNOME. There’s a setting in the preferences/configuration menu for the file browser that allows audio file previews. It appears that Helix is integrated, and plays the files on hover.

But… I really want to use this feature in KDE. Any help here would be appreciated. Maybe I am simply overlooking the obvious.

Again, thanks in advance.
