Autorun audio CDs (VLC)

Hi!

I am a new user of Bunsenlabs. I can run an audio CD opening it manually in VLC Media Player but I can't find how to make it run automatically when I insert the CD.

Thanks for your help

Re: Autorun audio CDs (VLC)

Menu => Edit => Preferences => Advanced:

Configure the management etc. => Storage => you can choose a command for audio CDs

^This is in Thunar, the file manager by the way, not VLC, and you want the [Multimedia] tab.
I'm using mpv now, but I think the command I used for vlc was 'vlc cdda://'

Hi!

Well... I tried the command with VLC, MPV and Audacious but it doesn't work.

Hi!

hahaha Yes, that's right... "doesn't work" is not very descriptive. After inserting the CDs the media player doesn't even open. But I can play the CDs when I load them manually on the media player.

Re: Autorun audio CDs (VLC)

This works fine for me. I used the following commands, for audio CDs:

vlc cdda://

and for DVDs:

vlc dvd://

The following thread may be useful for those having problems, it explains how to start Thunar as a daemon: https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=4847

Both steps (Thunar daemon and Thunar preferences) are necessary for autorun if Thunar isn't open.
