A tool for converting your Videos to self-running executable files
The MakeInstantPlayer application was developed to be a tool for converting video files into self-running executables. This is very useful for distributing video clips, as the user doe NOT need any additional software for playback!
As MakeInstantPlayer uses the MPlayer engine for playback, it supports almost any video format in existence. The user interface is based on MPUI, a very lightweight MPlayer front-end by Martin Fiedler.
Furthermore MakeInstantPlayert uses Nullsoft's Scriptable Install System to pack everything into a single EXE file. In order to start playback simply double-click on the Instant Player file and enjoy the show!
The commandline options described in ths section can be used with all "Instant Player" executables.
Please be aware: These option do NOT apply to MakeInstantPlayer itself, only to the executables it creates. Also they do NOT apply to MPlayer itself. Do NOT enter them into the "Parameters" edit box!
Basic commandline syntax:
MyInstantPlayer.exe [/?] [/NOSPLASH] [/NOGUI[=]] [/NOHOME] [/EXTRACT[=]]
Display an about dialog containing version information and a list of all commandline arguments.
Do NOT display the splash screen on startup. This way the Instant Player will start up much faster.
Don't run the graphical user interface (MPUI). Call MPlayer.exe directly instead. If specified, the additional commandline arguments will be passed to MPlayer on startup. This option is intended for advanced users only!
Do NOT open the hompage in the user's web-browser after the playback has terminated.
Extract the media file from the Instant Player executable, so it can be opened in an external player. By default the media file will be extracted to the folder where the Instant Player executable is located. If specified, the media file will be extracted to the directory.
Please note that the Instant Player will NOT play back the media file when the /EXTRACT argument is used!
