[Solved] Configuring VLC

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am trying to automate the installation and configuration of the latest version of VLC, V2.0.2.

The automation of the GUI installation has no issues. However, when the script starts VLC for the first time, it gets presented a Privacy and Network Access Policy QWidget which has two QCheckBox and a non-standard button. I want to uncheck the QCheckBoxes and then click on the non-standard button but non of the standard commands work. In fact, the AutoIt Window Info is only able to pick up the widget title and nothing else.

I can only get around it by sending: tab + space + tab + space + tab + space to perform the unchecking and clicking.

Anyone know another way of doing this?



Edit: Admins can delete this. Googling autoit+qcheckbox returned no results but autoit+qwidget did.

Edit: Solved by exporting an existing config file and then after installation, copied the pre-canned config file over

Edited by vvb

I'll be AutoIting my entire system soon.

      I made this application at the behest of another user because it sounded like a really cool idea.
      I've been using it for a little over 7 months and I really like it.
      After Compiling:
      If you want to use it as a pass through you'll need to name the script Vlc.exe and the original vlc.exe to Vlc_Orig.exe.
      On first run it will create a settings.ini with default settings and pop up the settings dialog
      Running VLC.exe again only runs the script passes on the new commandline and exits the script
      the previous script stays running...
      Once you close the VLC window after a few seconds a pop up will appear F1- Help, F4 - settings, ESC - Quit without saving

      If you don't want to use it as a pass through you'll probably need to change it a bit to do what you want

      all I want to do is control VLC player without it being the active window.
      I tried this, but that only works if VLC is the active window:
      $VLC = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:QWidget]") ControlSend("","",$VLC,"{SPACE}") Strange thing is I tried similar thing with AutoHotkey and it works like a charm so there has to be a way.
      (I checked the VLC UDF but as far as I see it does not interacts with VLC itself, rather it opens "a new VLC" using InternetExplorer. This is not what I want to do.)
      EDIT: for some reason this works. Can someone explain why?
      HotKeySet("{F5}", "Pause") $VLC = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:QWidget]") While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func Pause() ControlSend("","",$VLC,"{SPACE}") EndFunc EDIT2: huh, did some testing and if I run the script and use F5 without VLC not being active first, it will not work even when I make VLC active. However, when I run the script make VLC active, press F5 then i works like it should, VLC can be minimized, made not active. Why?
      EDIT3: when using Ctrl+V it only works when the window is active, despite what I wrote in EDIT2. This is mingboggling
      Func Pause() ControlSend("","",$VLC,"^v") EndFunc

      I Have a GUI with 2 VLC instance inside. I use VLC.au3 for receive the rtp streams
      I can watch the videos and listen the audio streams.
