Please note that at present only a shifted starting time is supported using a command line parameter (though there is a long outstanding request with respect to a similar function for the ending time (click here).)
I think the easiest way to show you how these command-line parameters work is to first create a new shortcut to BS.Player (or simply copy the present one). Save the new shortcut under any name in a folder a folder to your liking, making sure the user's rights/privileges for that folder are OK.
Now edit "Target" of this newly created shortcut (rightclick on it > Properties) and add to the end of the existing line a <space> followed by: "[MyDrive]:\[MyPath2File]\[MyMovieFile.avi]"
(Of course instead of the [My....] etc fill in the appropriate data.)
Now you cou can also add further parameters like e.g. <space>-fs<space>-stime=120<space>-hide
(Meaning/function of these parameters are as indicated in the file "cmdline.txt" which is in the folder named "doc" inside BS.Player's installation-folder.)
Save the shortcut after having finished editing it.
Now test it first (without BS.Player already running; in BS.Player's preferences 'autostart' should be selected).
If it doesn't work, there may be a typo in the part you edited in the shortcut's target. Maybe copy the line in a further post on this forum so that we may take a look at it. (Don't forget to also mention your OS please.) Also let us know if you succeeded of course!
