It removes the item-change callback as well as some checks for the remaining item-current callback (otherwise no notifications would be shown). I tested it with some local files and it seems to work. One ramification from the removed input_item_IsPreparsed() check is that files opened directly from Finder only show the filename instead of the metadata.

Yes unfortunately, but it displays the metadata and the icon if i drag some files into the playlist and start them from there, also the additional notifications are gone.
