Open fullscreen & play randomly

Post by sternenfall » Wed Dec 18, 2019 8:34 am

Hello, friends of XnView.

Recently I figured out a nice Windows batch call:

Code: Select all

    start %~d0\bin\XnView\XnView /fullscreen *.gif *.jp*g *.png *.mp4
I would put XnView portable on a stick under X:\bin (X = drive of stick), the above command into some X:\Play.cmd and XnView plays all files on this stick. Nice and simple. Now I have some issues:

- The /fullscreen option shows the title and the taskbar - you have to press "f" or "F11" once

- It always starts with the same image or video; no /random option

- It would be nice to have an option like /everything that plays any file type XnView is aware of

XnView is version 2.46. BTW I never got the slideshows (.sld-files) working, so luckily I found the above solution and am happy to share it.

Thank you for any suggestions.
Greetings, Andreas
