Play DVDs automatically on insertion in VLC media player
Authored by: tonyo on Sep 19, '07 04:28:31PM
For the When you insert a video DVD option, in the drop down menu select Run Script, and then select the AppleScript you just saved. That's it!

Why don't you just choose VLC in that menu, instead of the applescript? That's what I do to launch HandBrake on insert instead of DVD player. Just seems like an unneeded step. Am I missing somethin'?

If you select VLC in the drop down box, then it does run when a DVD is inserted, but it doesn't play the DVD. (On my system at least) The script is needed to tell VLC to actually start playing the DVD. Sorry - perhaps I should have explained that in the hint.

I find its nice to have VLC fire up when you insert the disc, then hit play on the apple remote from the couch when ready to start watching.
If you dont have a remote, then space or enter should kick the disc off.
