Sorry but I can't find a comprehensive doc on what I can put into the dongle.bin.config file...specifically I want to mount some windows shares but I'd like to know what else I can put in there. Just looking for the link, thanks.

It's a bash script so you can be creative some ideas

- custom start ups for multiple mvp's
- mounting cifs and nfs shares
- running / setting time
- stopping telnet (the only one I will help on killall telnetd
- enabling dropbear
- setting up symbolic links
- setting up hot keys for native mode http://mvpmc.wikispaces.com/menus.filesystem
- running custom apps

thank you. i did not realize it was a script.

to set vlc options in the script, echo them to a file?

The only vlc settings that can be set in the config file are the command line options to identify where vlc is located and the setting to contol either the audio or video bit rates for transcoding. DVD, SVCD, VCD or raw. These are also available in Setup program from the main menu.

Most of the customization of vlc is done from the server side when you start the telnet interface. The default is just vlc -I Telnet but you can add whatever you like. Some examples are on the mvpmc wiki

1. Yes I would like to set these via command line (in .config) but I don't see the proper format or examples in the link you sent, or elsewhere on the wiki. I want to avoid needing to use the Setup program (WAF). Generally speaking, are all of the Setup parameters in a file somewhere which can be manipulated, or are they inaccessible?

2. I can get an avi to play via transcoding with vlc (after using Setup) but I want to watch a streaming wmv on the internet at an http link. I realize I could use vlc to transcode to an mpg (start vlc manually on the server), but I was wondering if I can use mvpmc to "kick off" the vlc process on demand. I have the complete vlc commandline I use in .bat file on the server, the url of the stream never changes (it redirects vlc to a different .wmv daily).

thanks

1. The wiki page I linked to explains the vlc command line options you have to add to the dongle.bin.config file. --vlc ip is the most important one, and if you don't like the default of DVD quality check out --vlc-vb and possible --vlc-ab

2. This is only possible if you know how to create vlc VLM scripts to open the avi stream and transcode it to http and mpeg required by mvpmc.
