    Modded AMP to use VLC instead of DVD

    Hi,

    With my current iCar setup I didn't have a internal DVD drive and sadly DVD Player doesn't support Firewire or USB DVD drives. My only hope for DVD use was to use VLC. Well I tricked AMP to use VLC instead of using DVD Player. This is how it was done.

    Deleted DVD Player and it's App support files in /Users/(MYUSER)/Library/Application Support

    Then changed the label of VLC to DVD Player. Then I went into the contents of VLC and edit the file called Pkginfo to

    APPLcfbs

    After that I created a file called version.plist


    <?xml version="1.0 encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "=//Apple computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList/List-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>BuildVersion</key>
    <string>11</string>
    <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key>
    <string>4.6.5</string>
    <key>ProjectName</key>
    <string>DVDPlayer</string>
    <key>SourceVersion</key>
    <string>46500506</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>


    I lauched AMP and crossed my fingers and hit DVD and VLC launched.
    To live is to let die.
