VLC Autoplay Configuration

VLC Media Player is a free, open-source multimedia player. On Windows, it can be used as one of the programs that appears in the Autoplay list for various media types, including Audio CDs and DVDs.

This form will generate a customised Registry file that will set up VLC as a DVD and CD audio content handler for use with Autoplay in Windows XP, Vista, and 7. This will add VLC to the list of applications used to play DVDs or Audio CDs that you are presented with when you insert a disc of this type.

Fill in the information below and hit Submit to get your configuration file. As usual, conditions apply to the use of this tool.

Full Path to VLC:
(e.g. C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\vlc.exe – don’t use “double quotes”)

Depending on your browser, you should be automatically asked to save the registry file to disk, or it may simply display the text of the file in your browser. If it displays as text, simply save it to disk with a .reg extension.

Launch the file to add the settings to the Registry. Note that this will not change which program is the default Autoplay handler, so if something is already set as the default (such as Windows Media Player), you will need to change the setting yourself using the Control Panel.
