auto autoplay in Win XP
I use WinXP SP1 PL (<-- polish version)

I have added following entries to my registry (all values are REG_SZ):


with values:
Action = Play Video
DefaultIcon = C:\Media Programs\BSPlayer\BSplayer.exe,0
FriendlyName = Play video files with BSplayer
InvokeProgID = BSP.autoplay
InvokeVerb = play
Provider = BSplayer

value (empty string):


with default value = C:\Media Programs\BSPlayer\bsplayer.exe "%L"

That should enable BSplayer in the autoplay list when inserting CD. It does. Unfortunatelly it only opens BSplayer, it doesn't play the movie nor open the movie.

... why is that?

Any help would be appreciated ^_^

hmmm.... that might be because autoplay pass only folder, e.g.: "D:\", not the file that it decided to play. Unfortunatelly I don't know any BSplayer command line option to add dir.
Also -add option does not start playing file. Another thing is that it does not add file to playlist when BSplayer is already running (or at least does not, when used from windows cmd.exe)... >_<
I think I'm going to do something else now...

just associate avi files to bsplayer and use integrated winxp autoplay. it will detect the video file on cd and start it in associated player.

errr... I don't have such option, only actions available for video were "MSOpenFolder" and "MSTakeNoAction". I must have disabled it somehow long time ago. There is an action called ""MSPlayVideoFilesOnArrival" which could have been this default one, but that plays video with WMP.

i have solved this problem.

What about some explanation?

1. Install bsplayer exactly like this (but replace bspath with your own path):

start /wait bspath\bsplayer100.812.exe /S /D=C:\Progra~1\BSPlayer >nul
Q: What does this kind of install do? what those switches do?
Q2: afaik you can use "C:\Program Files\BSPlayer" instead of C:\Progra~1\BSPlayer, at least in XPPro

2. Download this completely silent rar sfx archive...

Q: oh, so you just made a program? what does it exactly do?

3. ...and run it simply like this (replace bspath with your own path):

start /wait bspath\bst-autoplay.exe >nul
Q: see 1.



"C:\Program Files\BSPlayer\BSplayer.exe",9
is better imho

PS: They still havent fixed the installer name, it should be 1.02.812 !!

all this is designed for an unattended installation of win xp
you know, windows setup with no questions asked, with a bsplayer as a default (among else), and so on...

but here:

1 - you can install traditionall by clicking on a setup program, but make sure you install in C:\Program files\BSPlayer
switches are designed for a unattended install (as i said)

2 - yes, a nice small program that generates a playlist from the video files on cd and then launches bsplayer...all in one second or less

3 - again, unattended install, you could just do a doubleclick on downloadad file

4 - change the reg file if you like :)
