Default AutoPlay


Is there a way to play a file automatically on program startup?

BSPeter is on a distinguished road

So that when you start BSPlayer it automatically starts showing a certain video?
No, not by directly starting BSPlayer.
You could e.g. easily use its commandline options to that purpose though.
E.g. create a desktop-shortcut (or maybe you call it a "link"?):
Rightclick on an empty part of the desktop > select "New" > "Shortcut" (or "Link"?).
Then type in the commandline-box e.g.
"C:\Program Files\Webteh\BSPlayer\bsplayer.exe" "D:\Movies\test.avi" -eend
(You should - of course - change path/filenames)
Clicking on this desktop-shortcut will open BSPlayer and test.avi will start playing,
provided the option "Auto play" is checked (selected) under [General settings] (rightclick > Options > Preferences ).
the -eend parameter will close BSPlayer when the movie is finished.
For further info about parameters please read "cmdline.txt" in subfolder "doc" of BSPlayer's installation folder.

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.

Or use HWlauncher which is included in HWmaker pack! :D (only for video files)
Check it here:

And a tip: if you don't want to play the files using parameters, just copy hwlauncher.exe into the files folder and double-click on hwlauncher (no need of creating ini/bsi files)!
