Path of Portable MediaPlayers

Oct 27, 2012 at 9:34 PM

I would like to suggest, that the installation path of a portable MediaPlayer could be chosen in the general options as prefered DVD-Player. Now it seems not possible. Probaly MPC-HC or VLC has to be installed as my Portable MPC-HC is not directed to play the previews. Instead WMP is started - which can't play mkv up to now.

To my mind it would be a small improvement for those who prefer not to install too much stuff (Codec-Packs etc.).

Currently when you play a video file in VidCoder it uses the default player you would get when you double-click the file. Though I can add this request to the backlog.

Well, it would be nice - but if you are short on time, focus on rather important changes.

Anyway: Thank you for Vidcoder and its further development!

I added a feature to play video files from a custom location in 1.4.13 Beta. Having a custom program to play DVD files is a bit harder since different programs use different syntax to specify the path and title number.
