Well, Better Zip does a fair job.

Yes, any application placed in the Applications folder can provide QuickLook support. Sandboxing does not affect an application's ability to support QuickLook. Mac OS X looks inside applications for a QuickLook plug-ins folder. The specific folder is: MyApp.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/ Support for Automator and Spotlight can also be provided using ...

It appears Spotlight does not make use of Address Book plug-ins. Extra menu items added by Skype also fail to appear in the Spotlight preview. It is worth providing feedback to Apple asking for this functionality to be added. It would greatly improve Spotlight. Context Menu in Contacts.app: Context Menu of Contact in Spotlight:

I've uploaded QuickLook and Spotlight plugins here: https://github.com/Marginal/QLVideo . These allow Finder to display thumbnails, previews and metadata for most types of video files, including .asf, .avi, .flv, .mkv, .rm, .webm, .wmf etc. Packaged binary is here: https://github.com/Marginal/QLVideo/releases .

It's not a Quick Look plugin, but Sound Studio it is fairly lightweight, and displays the waveform: However, I'm afraid I don't think you'll find the waveform itself to be particularly useful for determining duplicate songs.

Try Audacity. It doesn't seem to heavyweight for just waveform viewing.

Yes, you can add a Quicklook Plugin to an application. For example, QuickNFO uses one: QuickNFO Mac App store page

Take a look at the QuickLook Stephen plugin referenced in this thread: Great Quick Look plugins It opens almost everything I throw at it (as long as they are text based).

Open Terminal, and type the following: qlmanage -m plugins This will give you a fairly long list of all your active QuickLook plugins: The types listed there might look a little strange, like com.apple.safari.bookmark. Those are Apple Uniform Type Identifiers or short UTType identifiers, and there is a list of the default ones available from Apple ...

This has to be the single most annoying change in Mavericks. From what I Understand the new version of Quicktime is not well enough documented to allow this development yet.

"QuickTime on Mavericks" is not QuickTime anymore - it is "AV Foundation". QuickLook and QuickTime Player are based on this "new QuickTime". "AV Foundation" comes from iOS, was implemented for Mac OS X too and does not offer extensions (and will never) like codecs / plugins. As Apple says: anything else than MPEG-4 (H.264) is old stuff and must be ...

You might be able to open them with QLStephen which opens all kinds of files that are plain text. I am hesitant to recommend it since it will try to open every file for which you don't have another plugin as plain text which is not helpful. It has a blacklist but I found myself constantly adding things to said list which makes it kind of bothersome to use. ...

To develop Quick Look plugins, you can visit this site, which states: About QLPlugins.com QLPlugins.com is a repository for Quick Look Plugins, which are available starting with Mac OS X 10.5. In addition, I seek to provide information for developers seeking to create QuickLook Plugins and to power users looking to use QuickLook more ...

Simple answer, no. More complex answer is still no, but that doesn't mean it can't be done (Late Night Software's Script Debugger overrides the default QuickLook viewer for applications (com.apple.application) but you as the user don't see any difference). There are a few sites around such as Quick Look Plugins and QLPlugins that offer plugins ...

Checkout Snapper 2 from Audio Ease: http://www.audioease.com/Pages/Snapper/SnapperMain.html# I was looking for the same thing but this is the only all-in-one, finder level waveform viewer I could find.

After a quick google, maybe this is what you need? http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20071028184428583 It explains how to declare specific file types as plain text, QuickLook will use these declarations.
