Mac OS X 10.8 and Anki 2.0.8

Drag+dropping *.mp4 or *.m4a files when adding a new card or editing an existing one doesn't work – it just pastes the full file path instead of [sound:filename.mp4]. Seems to work fine with mp3 files though.

Btw. it would be nice to have a feature to drag and drop files straight out from web browser – e.g. I have a site where I have pictures and links to sound files. It would help greatly if I could just drag and drop them to Anki instead of having to download them, open them in a folder and then drag and drop from there.
