Support for all types of resource files
« on: November 30, 2009, 06:18:36 AM »
Since you have started supporting VLC media player and you have shown how you could run the files that are hosted on your server using VLC player, You could now start enabling the users to host anytype of files like AVI. This would remove the problems that we face because of conversion. For example i can rip a DVD and host it as .vob file directly and then open the VLC player and run it. If not we would have to load this VOB file individually at all the PC's which would be a huge task .

That's right... or even better, access a DVD directly, so no need to even rip it...

Here are the VLC command args:

If i have this at 20 different physical locations , installing DVD in all locations is tough, hence it is better to upload the DVD content on to the server
