Opening video file in VLC


Recommended Posts

You'll have to be more specific.  "MB3" refers to a whole range of possible applications.  Which one, specifically, are you asking about?

HI ebr, Sorry I thought the forum subsection I am posting the question (server) would make it non-ambagious! Anyways, I am talking about MB3 - server for windows (the one you use from browser localhost:8096). And please let me know, it is possible to do it (opening with VLC) in other edition of MB3.

 

Thanks

Yes, the sub-section would indicate the web client but I couldn't be sure you realized that :).

 

The web client is not likely to be able to open any external players any time soon because it is designed to run across any platform (PC, phone, tablet, etc).

 

Both MBC and MBT do allow external players although I would say MPC-HC is the one that has the best support/features.

Ah! Thank you for the info. I already have MBC and I just configured it to open the file in VLC. Btw, What is MBC-HC? In the download page I could not find anything with HC.

MPC-HC is Media Player Classic - Home Cinema.  An external player that we have the best support for in MBC.

OK, I'm willing to give MPC-HC a try; where do I tell MB-C to call it instead of WMC?

 

Open the MBC Configurator (it's a separate app that gets installed with MBC) - then look at the second to last tab "external players".

 

MPC-HC works really well, and in conjunction with MadVR, it's possible to configure it to perform refresh rate switching.

We already have remote play-to functionality.

That's what I meant. Somehow it should be possible to play to VLC as client. It's so far working that VLC discovers the server. Accessing might need a few hours work.
