Playing videos in an external player

Post by Queseuq »

I've recently added my videos to Media Monkey, but now I need a way to play them. I have the "Open tracks in another application" script but was wondering if there was a way to make the default double click open the video in the external player? Would a script be able to accomplish this and if so could someone give me a pointer on how to start it. Not much of a programmer :cry:

Doesn't look like anyone has posted results of a test with MM3, but I don't see why any of them shouldn't work. Try one (or all!) of them out, post in the script thread if its MM3 compatible. (The second one listed looks the most promising..)

Yeah, that External Tools script looks really good. Means I could combine all my 'run in external program' scripts into one, thanks nohitter.

Edit: I already found the "Open videos in default player".
Although I would have preferred the option to choose.
In MM4 I added 2 editions of the script for 2 different players.
Now I'm stuck with the default,
which windows seems to automatically switch back to their horrible video player.
After every time I change it...

Can the Script "Open tracks in another application" still be used in mediamonkey 5???
And how?
Where to place the script now?
Or how to adjust it?

Thanks...

If an application gets default then check its settings as it may steal this on start.
