Hello experts, I have a client who wants to distribute information docs and videos to their employees on a USB stick. He would like the stick to autorun, showing a menu which will launch the videos and docs. One of the videos has to be run as a DVD, not .mpg etc as it has its' own menu for the chapters, I've converted all the docs to pdf.
So far, I have created a small website on the stick with hyperlinks to launch all the files. The company I've approached to produce the sticks say they will do the autorun.
This works but often has problems opening videos. I've included VLC media player on the stick, which needs to be installed and the hyperlink is to the video_ts.ifo file, this works in IE but not Chrome as chrome always downloads the file before running and it only downloads the ifo file, not all the rest. I have included a script to detect when IE is not being used and pops up a message to advise people to use IE.
The trouble is the whole thing is not as slick as I would like, I have considered using a VB program for the menu but that would mean running an installation or ensuring that vbruntime is installed so it's not ideal.
Can anyone suggest a better method please?
