i am making a distributable usb for a charity.
i have vlc port on a usb, and also a folder called 'video' containing a single m4v file. (the video is in it's own folder in case people want to download it to their pc)
i also created a shortcut in the root of the usb pointing to a playlist of the single video so that when clicked, it automatically plays the video.
this works well on the computer it was created on, but not, of course, when used on another where the drive letter for the usb might have changed.
a. is it possible to automatically load the video, (with a command line)so skipping the playlist shortcut. ie. create a shortcut directly to vlc to play video?
b. i have searched the net to find a SIMPLE method of making the usb paths relative so it will work in any pc. i'm very confused. could someone help me out or point me to a idiot proof tut
thanks for your time,
