  • another satisfied customer. One SMALL question

    I started off using media engine. Switched to media car, and have finally found a home in frodoplayer. I applaud you frodo for coming up with such AWESOME software. Now one question. Is there a way to set the DVD drive to my external harddrive (where i store all of my dvds). I went into settings 1/dvd drive and it gives me the options "none" and "D:". My external is the F:. Oh yea, and if someone is REALLY bored, come up with an alpine skin for FP. That was the only reason i switched to media car

        AFAIK thats not how it works. It appears the video setting is for music videos. I'm trying to point frodo dvd to the drive.

            good call! I found the INI and switched it to F: from there. For some reason it had L: as the dvd player in there whereas in the GUI it has D:

              I will eventually be writing up some scripts for daemon tools (for DVD images)
              As well as the ability to play from HD.

                I was playing with FP last night on my home machine (motherboard not in yet... ) and I thought I saw an option to set the DVD drive to whatever you wanted right from one of the configuration menus. Check them out first, if I'm wrong you'll only have wasted a few mintues.

                  Oh, so it cant be done yet? No prob. Dont really watch many dvds anyway. I'll keep an eye out for those changes. Thanks.

                      The videos tab and DVD player are two different things. The videos tab shows MPEGs, AVIs, WMPs, etc. located in a certain folder. In fact, my videos are located on F:\Music Videos. The DVD Player refers to the actual drive in which you would play a real DVD.
