VLC not calling video/dvd's
« on: February 03, 2010, 12:06:53 PM »
I can't get External App and  VLC to work.

I know my command lines are ok because I've tried them in run command.

Once I try it in the studio/Airplayer I just get a blank screen.

Here are examples of my simple command lines
Through Run:
"c:\program files\videolan\vlc\vlc.exe" dvdsimple://E:
"c:\program files\videolan\vlc\vlc.exe" c:\video.mp4

Here's External App version
app path: c:\program files\videolan\vlc\vlc.exe
Command: dvdsimple://E: 
c:\video.mp4


Neither work. I get a blank screen.
Do I need quotes on the app path?

The station and studio version numbers are 1.8.185

Is the SignageController.exe running? It must run for Ext App to work!
