  • Play AVI in fullscreen moce

    Hello,

    I want to view an AVI video in fullscreen mode with Windows Media Player. Is there any possibility to modify the Aktion-Tab --> Play Multimedia --> Run Mode?

    Or can I open my AVI File with execute --> custom verb? If its possible, then I made some mistakes.

    In a autorun.inf I have the following command line:
    open=start mplayer2.exe /fullscreen /play /close \name.avi

    How I have to modify the actiontab?
    Maybe anyone can help me?

    Thanks a lot,

    Ballantines

    PS: Sorry for my horrible english...

    I am not sure if I can help you, but why do you want to use the Mediaplayer? AMS2 used to do this, run the windows player outside of the project window and I found it detracted from the overall look of the project...

      Hi,
      Try using an EXECUTE PROGRAM action to execute Windows Media Player. Then pass it "/fullscreen /play /close \name.avi" (quotes included), that should work.

        Ok, I tried, but it doesn´t work.

        The following "Actions" didn´t work:

        action --> execute Program
        Target:
        File Name:mplayer2.exe
        Arguments:"/fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi"
        Working Dir:%SrcDrv%

        --> opens the Media Player without file

        File Name:mplayer2.exe
        Arguments:"/fullscreen /play /close \%SrcDrv%\Collision.avi"
        Working Dir:%SrcDrv%

        --> opens the Media Player without file


        File Name: mplayer2.exe "/fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi"
        Arguments: -
        Working Dir:%SrcDrv%

        --> mplayer2.exe "/fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi"
        the specified file was not found


        File Name: mplayer2.exe "/fullscreen /play /close \%SrcDrv%\Collision.avi"
        Arguments: -
        Working Dir:%SrcDrv%

        --> mplayer2.exe "/fullscreen /play /close \%SrcDrv%\Collision.avi"
        the specified file was not found


        File Name: mplayer2.exe /fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi
        Arguments: -
        Workind Dir:%SrcDrv%

        --> mplayer2.exe /fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi
        The specified file was not found

        File Name: mplayer2.exe
        Arguments: /fullscreen /play /close \Collision.avi

        --> opens the Media Player with error "specified file was not found"

        File Name: %SrcDrv%\Collision.avi
        Arguments: "/fullscreen /play /close "

        --> Video plays without fullscreen


        File Name: %SrcDrv%\Collision.avi
        Arguments: /fullscreen /play /close

        --> Video plays without fullscreen

        Maybe you can write down exactly, what I have to do for an imput?

        Thanks a lot

          Ok ... let's make it work the way you want it to...

          Execute Program
          Target

          File Name %SrcDrv%\mplayer2.exe
          Arguments /fullscreen /play /close %SrcDrv%\file.avi

          Options

          Run Mode Minimized

          Notice no quotation marks (") and the spaces between arguments. If you don't include %SrcDrv% in the arguments than it won't work.
          Setting the Run Mode to Minimized makes it so you don't have to see the media-player before the AVI starts.

            I tried this with a Flash.exe file, but didn't work. Do you think this only works with the media player? How could I get the Flash.exe file to open to full screen?

              Hello,
              My first post after lurking for a few months....
              Firstly, what a fantastic forum! You guys are really helpful.

              I have built a CD using fullscreen AVI's and MPG's quite successfully last year.
              I have since put XP Pro on my machine and now find that the fullscreen AVI won't work properly on XP Pro, either in Preview mode or from a completed CD.
              I get sound coming through, but a minimized player and my menu page still there.
              Has anyone else come across this situation?

              Thanks

              Chris Keogh

                Hi Chris,

                What method are you using to play your MPEG video in Full Screen?

                If you are using an EXECUTE PROGRAM action please outline all the fields that you have filled in:

                File Name:
                Arguments:
                Working Dir:
                Wait for Return:
                Run Mode:

                  Hi Mark,

                  Yep, using EXECUTE PROGRAM

                  File Name: %SrcDrv%\mplayer2.exe

                  Arguments: /fullscreen /play /close %SrcDrv%\Videos\Braking.mpg

                  Options: Run Mode Minimized

                  Exactly the same as was outlined on this post back in November 2000.

                  I have 2 other hard drives (Laser Mobile rack system), and they currently run Windows Me.

                  When I use an HDD with Windows Me OS on it, both the older CD and the upgraded version burnt yesterday play fine.

                  When I use my HDD with XP Pro OS, both versions of the CD play the video with the media player window minimized, therefore no video picture at all, just the sound and the menu page.

                  It appears from this to be an XP thing, but seems pretty wierd.

                  Cheers

                  Chris.

                    Hi,

                    Try changing the Run Mode from "Minimized" to "Maximized" and see if that solves your problems.

                      Hi Mark,

                      Sorry for the delay (long weekend over here)

                      Yep, it works now usin maximised.

                      Only difference is that the Windows media player appears briefly before it goes to full screen, but I guess I'll have to live with it, so that it works on XP.

                      Strange how that OS differs.

                      Thanks for your help.

                      Chris.
