Enable MM to launch external video player

Post by Finsternis » Sat May 19, 2018 10:31 pm

MM is supposed to be a media manager, not just a music manager, and I know it can catalog and play video files. But - no offense, guys - your internal video player sucks badly. Rather than spend a lot of time on it, fixing bugs and adding features,. why not just enable us to have MM launch video files with an external player? I'm thinking of VLC specifically here, but it could be anything. It would be great to tell MM to associate video formats with VLC so that when we play one, it launches that app instead of the internal player.

Thanks

This would be a great feature that I am looking forward too. I manage my music with MM but want to be able to manage images and videos with MM as well. Currently MM is lacking in this department.

Tools --> Options --> Player --> Use default external video player

The option has always been there.
