Playing movies in Full Screen mode in Windows Media Player 11 by default.
Posted on 2007-10-02
I would like to have Windows Media Player 11 automatically play .avi movies files in full screen mode when double clicked in Windows XP file folders.
I can accomplish this through the "Run" menu like this:
wmplayer /fullscreen /play "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Videos\video.avi"
So I tried to add the "/fullscreen" command switch to the .avi file association (advanced properties) like so:
"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /fullscreen /play "%L"
But this does not work, the movie will open and play but not in full screen mode. Any ideas?
