    VLC

    Does anybody know how to disable the 'Network & Privavy' dialogue that is displayed when VLC first runs for a user? You can disable it for each user once they've chosen an option in the first place but what I wantto do is stop the dialogue from displaying altogether.

    There apparantly is a solution but the person didn't post the answer on the VLC forum, even though they said they would.

    One option is to get a older version before they added the dialogue. Not got a fix for the other newest one yet as we dont run it.

    Add --no-qt-privacy-ask after the VLC executable file. (e.g. In Windows it would be vlc.exe --no-qt-privacy-ask.)
    You would need to use this every time you run VLC because the dialogue won't go any until a value has been set for the privacy policy.
    Unfortunately, VLC stores the settings in Application Data\vlc\vlcrc or .vlc/vlcrc so it has to be set per user.

    Just create the shortcut with those switches

    vlc.exe --no-qt-privacy-ask

    that way each time they launch it it automatically does that??

    Just a thought

    Where else would they go? They're not going to be running applications from the command line, are they??

    Any shortcuts using this would have to be in the All Users profile to avoid setting it for each user.
