I want a video to open, play and loop fullscreen automatically upon login. The following works when opening a cmd.exe window and typing it in:
"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" file:///xmas.mp4 -f --loop
However, I have tried creating a shortcut, batch script, vbs script, scheduled task, EVERYTHING I can think of and it doesn't work. It appears to be launching VLC over and over and reports the following:
Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///xmas.mp4". Check the log for details. File reading failed: VLC could not open the file "xmas.mp4". (%m)
And so on, over and over again, until I end the process.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
