Cineplayer Bd With 3D Command Line Options?

Recommended Posts

I would like to start work on a plug-in for MediaPortal that could potentially use Cineplayer for playing back Blu-ray discs. Are there any command line options for Cineplayer for starting playback without any interruptions? ie pointing Cineplayer toward a drive that already has a Blu-ray disc inserted and starting immediately. I suppose it would look something like this in theory:

 

cineplayer.exe D: /silent

Why not set Windows to open the disc in cineplayer as default?

 

That has always been an option when a new disc is inserted (you get a box asking what the OS should do when a new disc is inserted and a check box for 'always do this')

Have you tried calling Cineplayer from the command line with something like:

 

C:\cineplayer /? or /h

 

Most programs that have command line options will then tell you what those options are. However, and I'm not an expert here, I'm guessing you'll find that actual control of starting the playback is deferred to the disc or disc image. You know, like those discs that always play back the anti-piracy message first, and you can't skip it? (Though you can sometimes fast forward through it.) I would guess that most players are set up so you can't tell them to ignore the "mandatory preview" content. It's just a guess.

 

Hope that helps!

Thats not what I want to do. I would like to create a plug-in for MediaPortal that sets the correct refresh rate using another piece of software (why this isn't a feature of software players these days I have no idea), launches the player,, and starts playing. I don't like having things launch automatically, and even if it did, it would be the wrong refresh rate.

I didn't think of actually just trying the help options from the command line! I'm not fussed about skipping any anti-piracy warning, thats fine. I would just like to be able to launch it in a friendly way from Mediaportal, in the same way that you get an Arcsoft plug-in for MCE.

I'm also looking for this feature for command line switches for media browser for loading AVCHD's ISO's that autoload with clone drive. There should be some options but it looks like I may have to use another player. Would be nice to have this feature added in the next update.
