Is there a way to do it straight from MPC or could I create a separate program that would detect the file that is currently playing and delete it (I know it is possible to delete files while they are currently playing in MPC).

I would assume the biggest part of that problem is to delete the file while it is being played :D –  Oliver Salzburg Mar 22 '13 at 18:43
@OliverSalzburg Try it, it works. There is no conflict. –  Isopycnal Oscillation Mar 22 '13 at 18:44
Doesn't work, error message tells me "The action can't be completed because the file is open in Media Player Classic - Home Cinema". –  Oliver Salzburg Mar 22 '13 at 18:56
@OliverSalzburg Interesting. It works for me! But yes, that would be a problem, I am guessing in that case the program would detect the delete request and put it on hold for deletion when the file has been released. –  Isopycnal Oscillation Mar 22 '13 at 19:05
